While I didn’t grow up eating gebrochts, my father always made matzah brei on the last day of Pesach when we could get our matzah wet. When I was assigned to Naomi for the minhag swap, I was excited to do something out of the box, and waffles just seemed like the perfect dish!
YIELDS 6 WAFFLES
- 4 matzos
- ½ cup whole milk
- 4 eggs
- 1–2 Tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- pinch of salt
- butter or oil, for greasing
- maple syrup, for serving
Under cool running water, rinse the matzah until moistened and break up into small pieces. Place the crushed matzah in a large bowl, and add the milk, eggs, sugar (to taste), vanilla,
and salt. Grease a waffle iron with butter or oil and fill with matzah brei batter. Cook until golden brown. Serve hot with maple syrup.
