DAD GANSIE’s Premier YouTube Event

Like I said in my first Passover post, I wouldn’t be getting any timely recipes to you. And as the holiday ended yesterday I’m just getting you a little something.

Now I have to say, this wasn’t the best thing I’ve ever eaten. But the below video will surely excite you.

The fairly common Matzah Brei (fried matzah) is like our answer to french toast. The matzah is torn in to pieces, soaked in water to soften, then the water is drained out as much as possible. Next, mix the matzah with eggs and milk. A lot of people make this sweet like french toast and add cinnamon and nutmeg and once fried, cover in *kosher for Passover* syrup. But I like my breakfast on the savory side: I seasoned it with salt and freshly ground black pepper and when it was fried, I topped it with cream cheese, raw onion and lox. I based it on this recipe.

The tricky part though, is flipping this creation so the top side is equally cooked and browned.

Check out DAD GANSIE as he flips the shit out of our matzah brie. This is best watched with volume.

    ES takes a bold step into the 21st century! DG – I need some lessons about flipping – I really want to be able to do this with omelets, pancakes, etc…perhaps an instructional video is in order.

    haha that was watched with volume at work- not the best choice considering gansie would no doubt be yelling. but your dad’s expression is priceless.

    Gansie, you are so f-ing loud. Unreal.

    I flipped my omelet tonight and it worked pretty well. However, I had a mishap this weekend when I attempted the same omelet flip. All over the floor.
