Best 5 Delicious Matzah Recipes – Folks, it’s unofficially matzah season: Passover, a prominent Jewish celebration that lasts eight days in early spring, revolves around unleavened bread. That, in my opinion, is insufficient time to savor all of the great matzah recipes available right now at home. And, to be honest, many people cook with matzah (also known as matzo or matza) all year.
There are sandwiches, pizzas, brittles, and bakes that all include matzah as a key ingredient, in addition to the ultimate comfort food classic, matzah ball soup. Scroll down for five different matzah dishes that would be great for lunch, supper, a snack, or a fun Passover dessert.
1. Salted Toffee Matzah
This treat is so simple to make from scratch, and it’s just as great as a dessert as it is for a quick snack to grab on the go. It’s the perfect mix of sweet and savory—thanks to the combo of melted chocolate, toffee, and flaked sea salt. We love that you can customize it to your heart’s content: Try adding toasted almonds, coconut flakes, or dried goji berries for an extra serving of heart-healthy fiber and antioxidants.

2. Matzah Nachos
These machos (aka matzah nachos) are described as “the perfect cure for Manischewitz wine hangovers” by the recipe developer, and we’re here for it. For it, matazh is broken up into “chips” and baked before being covered in melted cheese. They’re easy to make in about 15 minutes, and you can top them with pico de gallo, guacamole, roasted veggies, and sour cream—really whatever you’ve got in the fridge.

3. Matzah Lasagna
Calling all cheese-lovers. This matzah lasagna is gooey and cheesy while still maintaining that classic matzah crispiness to it. It’s packed with flavor thanks to basil, garlic, bell peppers and plenty of Parmesan. This one is bound to please even the pickiest eaters at your Passover dinner.

4. Matzo-rella Sticks
What’s not to love about fried (unleavened) bread that’s filled with cheese? These are a great snack to have alone, paired with the classic marinara, or with any sauce or topping you have on hand. Cooking them in the air fryer is the ultimate power move.

5. Matzah Brei Mac ‘n Cheese
This iteration of the classic Passover-friendly comfort food dish combines scrambled eggs with matzah, vegan cream cheese, and cheddar. But it tastes every bit as good as traditional matzah brei only with an uber creamy texture. Best part? It only requires five ingredients to whip up.
