This Sunday: Make Matzah Brei, Then Watch the Ten Commandments
Your Sunday Morning Plan
This is the Sunday right before Passover, so why not gear up for some Matzah Brei? We called Bunch staffer Pamela’s Bubby Elsa for her recipe (and story):
You’ll need (no proportions given):
- Matzah (regular or whole wheat)
- Miscellaneous omelette-type ingredient, eg. red Pepper or cheese (“If you want to make it fancier… in my day, we made it plain”)
Whisk the eggs and add the salt and pepper. Break up the matzah. In terms of the great “to soak or not to soak” matzah debate, Bubby Elsa says, “In my house years ago, we just wet it a bit — most people wet it more or soak it more or something, but just wet it a little bit. If it’s whole wheat matzah, maybe soak it a bit more. Mix with eggs and fry a bit.
Bubby Elsa adds, “Zaida loved it. He wanted it all year round.”
And whether you’re gearing up for Passover, folding palm leaves into crucifixes for Palm Sunday, or aren’t observing any religious holidays, why not enjoy a classic Hollywood epic starring Charlton Heston and Yul Brynner? The Ten Commandments works even if you’re more into the chocolate bunnies than matzoh. If you’re interested in a Bible-inspired movie but can’t stay up for all 220 minutes of Cecil B. DeMille’s magnum opus, there’s always Jesus Christ Superstar. We suggest a sing-a-long.
