Deep Thought

I wonder if I was the first person to invent matzo brei with bacon.

    It’s NOT FUNNY. (Like how many feminists does it take to change a light bulb.)

    So Sunday I was in a Greek diner here in NJ and they had a little Passover menu. With matzo brei on it. Curiosity got the better of me, and I ordered it. (“What would a Greek cook make of a recipe for matzo brei? I’m sure he would not believe it for a second.”)

    I was asked if I wanted matzo on the side. I didn’t and said so. What arrived was a scrambled egg with onion in it, and not a trace of matzo.
    I guess the cook thought the mixing was done ‘au table’ AFTER the eggs were cooked.

    It was a good egg, so I was a good egg myself and ate it without comment.

    And if any readers are as confused as a Greek cook:

    My stepfather used to make Matzo Brei for we three kids. I misunderstood him (not being Jewish) and thought he said Matzo Fry. Called it Matzo Fry for years. I’m sure some of my Jewish friends thought I was retarded….lol. I had forgotten all about it till this article.
