Keeping pesach. What’s for breakfast?

Pesach approaches, and the kids are busy learning about it in school. We have never kept pesach before, but this year it looks like we’re going to try thanks to Jewish day school education.

I’m wondering what to serve for breakfasts at home. Can I make pancakes with matzoh meal? Does anyone know if there is a whole grain matzoh meal available, or any other ground flours that are acceptable? Looks like I’ll be bringing quinoa back to the table.

We will be going the sephardic route thanks to my husband’s Turkish roots, so rice and legumes are okay. Any suggestions out there would be appreciated, including recipes or passover cookbooks. I am a bit terrified.

    My favorite breakfast on pesach is matzah farfel! You can buy farfel in the store (I think whole wheat is available too), and just cook it in milk or soymilk the same way you would oatmeal. Mix in walnuts, raisins, banana, maple syrup, apple…it’s filling and warm.

    Matzo brie is also great – break matzah into pieces and put in a bowl. Cover matzah with boiling water until just saturated (no excess water). Add two eggs and a pinch of salt. Cook this mixture like an omelet until golden brown. Serve with jam or maple syrup.

    I too am a huge fan of Matzo Brei- kind of like French Toast but with Matzo instead of bread. I like them with jam but I have been party to many heated arguments debating the merits of sweet vs savory Matzoh Breis.

    Mollie Katzen’s (of Moosewood fame) recipe for matzoh brei (you have to scroll all the way to the bottom of the page):

    I know I’m disagreeing with the comments above, but I am not a fan of matza brei – or any type of matza food. I think the best breakfast for Passover is omlettes – with cheese or veggies, or spiced with a homemade salsa.

    In our house, the fastest Pesach breakfast is bananas + sour cream + matzo + butter. We also eat plain yogurt mixed with charoset and a bit of vanilla sugar. My kids have enjoyed kosher chocolate leben this year, and this morning I treated them with passover chocolate chip cookies crumbled into yogurt sweetened with vanilla sugar. Matzo brie is coming this weekend!
