Kale Matzo Brei Recipe

Matzo Brei, known as matzo and eggs, is commonly eaten as a breakfast food during Passover, when only unleavened bread is permitted. This dish can be prepared frittata or omelette style, and it can be made savory or sweet. I love it with sautéed kale which I never actually have tried or even thought of before until now. This Kale Matzo Brei recipe is my newest favorite Passover favorite. It’s a great way to incorporate healthy kale into your breakfast. The best part is that my kids really liked it, and asked why didn’t I think of this before. 🙂
