Matzo Gnocchi with Brown Butter and Sage (pictured above)
We use ground matzo in place of flour to make these pillowy gnocchi. Toss the gnocchi with sage and brown butter for a decadent and delightful main dish or side course.
Who doesn’t love mozzarella sticks? To make the cheesy appetizer Passover-friendly, use matzo meal for coating and again to dip each stick in before frying. You’ll have a gooey, cheesy treat that’s delightfully crispy and perfectly golden-brown.
You don’t have to choose between sweet and salty with this crunchy candy. Bake matzo sheets with a quick, sweet toffee on top, then add a layer of melted chocolate and a sprinkle of sea salt. If you really want to get creative, feel free to add sprinkles, too!
Molly ups the deliciousness in her savory brei by incorporating spinach, mozzarella and a drizzle of hot sauce or ketchup. The matzo gets soft and chewy when soaked and scrambled with eggs and makes a great dish for a holiday brunch.
You don’t need pasta to make a great lasagna! Matzo pulls double duty in this delicious recipe — matzo meal serves as a breading for the eggplant and matzo sheets stand in for noodles. Layer the eggplant and matzo with creamy ricotta, a homemade tomato sauce and plenty of mozzarella for a Passover-friendly crowd-pleaser.
The ultimate spring dessert, this cake comes together thanks to matzo meal, potato starch and plenty of lemon zest. Coat the cake with a meringue-style frosting and a sprinkle of shredded coconut for the perfect finishing touch.
Combine two classic comfort foods, brisket and gnocchi, for a Bolognese-inspired dinner. Our advice? Braise the brisket in the oven until it’s fall-apart tender for a truly fantastic dish.
