Matzo Dishes Your Grandma Doesn’t Make for Passover

  • Julie Resnick Co-founder, feedfeed, a global community of people who love to cook!

What Matzo Passover recipes are trending in the world of home cooks, chefs, and bloggers in the feedfeed community?

Reviewing thousands of submissions on #feedfeed each day from our Instagram community, some pretty amazing flavor combinations bubbled to the top that will take your Grandma’s Passover recipes and turn them on their head!

Passover starts this Friday, April 22nd and with that 8-night holiday comes lots of Matzo! Matzo is unleavened bread made simply with flour and water (and sometimes eggs) and is punched with hundreds of holes to keep it from rising. To me (and I think most!) Matzo is pretty bland. That is until you get creative! So put down the peanut butter or cream cheese and check out the amazing ways the feedfeed community is incorporating Matzo into their home cooking in new and inventive ways!

Matzo Brei Breakfast Sandwich With Ricotta & Sautéed Kale

Who needs bread when you can have Matzo Brei, which is a dish of broken up matzo that has been mixed with eggs and then cooked, resulting in a scrambled egg type concoction, but with slightly more texture. In this rendition, @iwillnoteatoysters creates a batter out the matzo and egg mixture and pan-fries it in oil creating a perfectly crisp vessel for the fried egg, sauteed kale and ricotta cheese breakfast sandwich.

Add toffee to almost anything and it would be delicious, but this matzo toffee by @simplybeatifuleating is beautiful to look at too! Make a double batch so you can gift one to friends or family and save the other all for yourself! Watchhow Debi makes this on our Snapchat!

What better way to enjoy Matzo than as S’mores? If making homemade marshmallows is not your thing, consider using store-bought marshmallows or even try filling the matzo brittle squares with ice cream for a frozen treat!

Charoset Ice Cream with Apples, Honey and Walnuts

Ok, so no matzo here, but Charoset ice cream? Where have you been all my life! How good would this be as a matzo ice cream sandwich? For those unfamiliar, Charoset is a mix of apples, walnuts, honey, red wine and cinnamon, and in the story of Passover represents the mortar the Jews used to build bricks while they enslaved in Egypt.

I love this flavor combination! It reminds me of classic baklava, but is much easier to make.

Everyone’s favorite dip in kugel form! The artichokes, spinach and roasted red peppers are a welcome addition to the classic matzo kugel base of this recipe.

Say Cheese

Sometimes, there just isn’t a substitute for a cheesecake. Modesty aside, we happen to think ours is pretty darn good.

Cheesecake | $40 each

We start with freshly ground graham crackers and pecans to make our crust, and add a thick layer of dense, creamy filling with just a touch of orange zest. We sprinkle some of those graham cracker crumbs on top for a perfect finish. It is rustic and elegant at the same time!

If you are a cheesecake lover, (and who isn’t?) you need to serve this one at your next dinner party!

Easter Treats

Twisted

You haven’t really had a pretzel, until you’ve had a homemade pretzel, fresh out of the oven. They are soft on the inside, with a slightly chewy, golden exterior. Pretzels, like bagels, are both boiled, and then baked to achieve this textural perfection. This makes the process a bit time consuming, but don’t sweat it…you provide the beer, and we’ll make the pretzels!

Vintage Romance

We are thrilled to share this post from Royal Lace Bridal, featuring a photo shoot we did last summer. It was a pleasure working with such a talented group women!

VINTAGE ROMANTIC STYLED SHOOT AT THE IRISH HUNGER MEMORIAL

I have been looking forward to sharing today’s lovely shoot for many reasons. One, it gives me great pleasure to showcase local New York City wedding vendors, specially when they continuously submit beautiful styled shoots that can’t go unnoticed. Two, I am completely smitten with the flower work of this vintage romantic shoot!

This shoot is the perfect example of the many different places in NYC besides Central Park or the Brooklyn Bridge where you can take your wedding pictures, so extra credit to the creative team for originality!

Before you scroll down to take a look, let’s here it from the wonderful Loblee Photography:

“We wanted to create a vintage fall inspired shoot but with a soft color palette. The Irish Hunger Memorial is such a beautiful almost haunting rock structure covered with fragrant vines of white flowers. It was the perfect backdrop for a romantic vintage shoot.

“Jacki from Hello Darlington used the textured yet muted pampas grass to create a unique ceremony backdrop with just the right amount of blush roses. 

The warm colors associated with Fall were incorporated in the two layered apple pie designed by Shari of Indigo and Jones with hints of gold to compliment the vintage brass ware.”

How lovely is the calligraphy on the rock? Great escort card idea by Ink and Nibs! Also, I really love the collection of brass and antiques that perfectly set the mood, by my neighbor Mandy from the Little Vintage Rentals.

Gorgeous, isn’t? I know I will be in awe for a while! And, I am sure this background will inspired a lot of weddings for the next years, do you agree?

Thank you so much Loblee Photography and the rest of the team behind this shoot for sharing their beautiful vintage romantic shoot with us.
