Creamed Spinach Matzo Brei with Fried Onions

A couple of years ago, I found a recipe for Matzo Brei with Creamed Spinach and Crispy Onions on Food.Com.  I made it and was wowed by it.  It has become a necessary part of our Passover meal plan ever since!

Creamed Spinach Matzoh Brei!

The only change I have made to the recipe is to use fresh spinach rather than frozen.  The pictures are of a half recipe, this is easily halved when you just need 2 servings.

Creamed Spinach Matzo Brei with Fried Onions

Slightly adapted from Food.Com

3 Tbsp canola or safflower oil

1 lb fresh spinach (local, if possible)

2 medium onions, thinly sliced

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

3 whole matzos

6 eggs, lightly beaten (from Farmer Kim)

2 Tbsp unsalted butter

1 (5.2 oz) package herb flavored spreadable cheese or 2/3 cup cream cheese


Heat 1 Tbsp oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.  Cook the spinach until just wilted, set aside.

Heat the remaining 2 Tbsp oil in a medium skillet over high heat until hot.  Reduce the heat to medium; add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally,  until golden,about 8minutes.  Season with salt and pepper and transfer to a bowl with a slotted spoon.  Reserve the skillet and oil.

Break up the matzos into about 2 inch pieces and soak in a bowl of cold water for 3 minutes.  Drain the matzohs and fold them into the eggs, 3/4 tsp salt and1/4 tsp pepper.

    Hello this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering
    if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise
    so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!


    1. You do not need coding experience if you use a platform such as wordpress or blogspot.


Let me know what you think of this post, and if you try the recipe, please let me know how it was and any suggestions you have. Thanks, Andrea
