Chocolate Matzoh Brei

Some time before next Passover, I will finish the matzoh.  Why do 5-lb boxes come free with a minimum purchase, while a single one-pound box costs $2.99?

I got this idea from the blog The Bitten Word, then simplified it for an easy breakfast for one.  The big difference is eliminating the oil and only putting a little margarine in the pan, which removes over 200 calories and 25g of fat per serving.

To make this absolutely awesome, peel a banana.  Mash half of it and add to the mix before frying.  Slice up the other half and decorate the top before serving.

*1 piece of matzoh
1 egg
2 Tb milk
*1 oz (about 2 Tb) chopped dark chocolate
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 Tb margarine

1.  Break matzoh into small pieces and place in a heat-proof bowl.  Boil a cup of water and pour over matzoh.  Let soak while you whip up the egg base, then drain.

The banana version
2.  Beat together egg and milk.  Add chocolate and salt (and banana) and beat them into the mix.  Add drained matzoh and let soak for up to 5 minutes.

3.  Preheat a 6" skillet.  Add margarine.  Once it melts, pour in matzoh mix.  Allow to cook for at least 30 seconds before trying to push it around.  At that point, treat it like scrambled eggs.  Once the egg is cooked, it's ready.  Serve hot.
