Eating Jewish: Coconut Matzah Brei

| |

I’m going to let you in on a little secret of mine: I actually like those tinned coconut macaroons that come out for Passover each year. They have to be one of the first things I reach for when I get into the Kosher for Passover section, and I could easily finish one of these tins in just a few days. It’s one of those things I’m embarrassed to admit I like, especially since homemade baked goods are so much better than any dessert that comes in a package. But those chewy coconut mounds get me every time-I blame the fact that I’m a sucker for almost anything with coconut in it.

Another favorite Passover dish of mine is the iconic matzah brei, a must have on many people’s Passover tables. The beauty of this dish lies in its simplicity; the only ingredients you need to make it are eggs, matzah, and a little salt. Using this basic combination as a jumping off point, the dish can be taken in many delicious directions. In order to put my own twist on the classic matzah brei, I realized I could take the flavors of the coconut macaroon I love so much and put them into this dish. I don’t know why I didn’t think of this before, but the combination is a perfect match.
