What To Do With Extra Matza Crackers: Matza Brei Meets Fried Rice


Passover is over. Did you celebrate? My friend Cindy brought over a box of matza and a container of harosetz for me, so that was basically the extent of my celebration. That, and matzo ball soup.

For days I was thinking about what to make with leftover matza crackers. In the past I've made matza brei, and it was really good, but I did not want to make the same thing again. That's when a crazy idea came to me: what if I make fried rice, but use matza crackers instead of rice?

Crazy or brilliant!?

What To Do With Extra Matza Crackers: Matza Brei Meets Fried Rice
Ingredients for 1-2 portions

1 Chinese pork sausage, diced
olive oil as needed
2 matza crackers, broken into pieces
2 eggs, whisked with a bit of salt
1/3 cup defrosted peas
1/3 cup kimchi
soy sauce to taste
sriracha to taste
black sesame seeds to garnish


Directions
1. Heat a skillet. Saute Chinese sausage till it is cooked through. Remove from the skillet.
2. If needed, add a drizzle of oil to the skillet.
3. Add matza crackers to whisked eggs and then add to the skillet. Saute, breaking into pieces, until matza pieces are cooked through and crispy.
4. Add back the Chinese sausage, peas and kimchi and heat through.
5. Season with soy sauce and sriracha and serve topped with sesame seeds.


This was pretty awesome! If you have fresh herbs, add them in the end. This is definitely a messy dish, but who cares!? Life is messy.

Eat this dish immediately.
