One More Meal Until BREAD!
I won’t embarrass the class by asking who has kept kosher for the eight days of Passover. All I will say to you is that you have one more meal before breaking the holiday, so you might as well go for the half-eaten box or matzah. You know you’ll just feed it to the dog anyway. (Or is my dog the only one that enjoys matzah?) This recipe will also help rid you of leftovers from your seder meal. You know you bought too much parsley.
Anyway, if you have access to a broiler during lunch, try this quick take on an opened-face cheese sandwich.
Swiss Cheese Matzah with Leeks and Parsley
Preheat the toaster oven to broil.
Take out one piece of matzah, rub it with butter. If it’s not already soft, just take some in your hand and gently smooth it over the matzah. Gentle! The matzah is quick to snap.
Sprinkle chopped leeks (leftover from the matzah ball soup broth) and parsley (leftover from the seder plate) on top of the matzah, season with salt and pepper and cover with 2 or 3 slices of swiss cheese. If you’d like, you can drop bits of butter on top of the cheese to encourage even more browning and amazingness.
Place this in the toaster oven (broiler setting) for just a few minutes until the cheese is throbbing, melted and slightly browned. While this is baking, fry an egg over easy. Use the cheesey matzah to scoop up the runny yolk.
Then a few hours later – go enjoy bread! How does my family break Passover? Pizza of course. How are you planning on indulging in grains, corn and legumes?
