What do you make during Passover when you feel like eating french toast? You make fried matzo! I’m super excited to share our family recipe with you.

I’ve seen several ways that people make fried matzo, and I can tell you that this one will be different from most traditional recipes. I’ve seen some soak the matzo in water first. I’ve seen some break the matzo into many pieces. I’ve seen it look super eggy. This is none of those things.

Just imagine all of the flavors of french toast, but crispier. That’s our family’s version of fried matzo.

Can I use any type of butter?

The thing about making any recipe that is Kosher for Passover is that you have to be sure that all of the ingredients you are using are also Kosher for Passover. Google says to use margarine, but I was able to find out that Breakstone’s butter is, in fact, Kosher for Passover! If you are unable to find it, you can also use margarine.

What is the best type of matzo to buy?

I prefer egg matzo, but you can use any type that you can find in the stores.

Do I have to put it in the oven?

You don’t, but if I’m cooking fried matzo for the entire family and we want to eat together, it’s best to keep them warm in the oven at 200º. If you plan to serve it as each piece of matzo is finished, you can skip that step.

Is this definitely Kosher for Passover?

Our family was never super strict. We weren’t the family that cleaned out all the bread (we just didn’t eat it). As far as I know, all of the ingredients are kosher for Passover. If in doubt, do your research first. It never hurts to double-check!

Now that I’ve hopefully answered all of your questions about this Kosher for Passover chocolate chip cookies let’s talk about the ingredients and the recipe!
