All My Good Food For Passover

Matzo Crunch Food For Passover

I love cooking food for Passover.

Maybe it’s the change in seasons or just the fact that everyone may be coming home…whatever the case, I love the sense of peace and order when getting ready for Passover.

This year I tried a quick new snack that reminds me a lot of honey covered granola, only better.

No oats-only matzo farfel-which is really just a fancy name for crumbled matzoh. Feel free to crumble your own matzoh or if you don’t celebrate Passover and have no boxes of matzo on hand, crumbled saltines would most likely taste great, too.

Now that I’ve made this I see a myriad of possibilities for this matzo granola snack.

Embellishing this with dried fruits, salted peanuts, a chocolate drizzle, extra salt, and who knows what, but those ideas for Passover snacks will have to wait for a later date.

Honey Matzo Crunch

This quick microwave recipe is one I found in the back of the Hot Bread Kitchen cookbook.

I think you’ll like it, even if you don’t keep Passover.

It makes the perfect snack for those drives to Grandma’s when the kids are  hungry and you know dinner will awhile in coming.

It made the perfect snack for Manservant who loves the honey taste.

It could become quite addicting but I hid it in the recesses of my just cleaned pantry. Hope I can find it again when everyone-well, almost everyone- arrives on Friday.

Check it out and check out some of my other foods for Passover that I conveniently listed in one spot.

After all Seder means order and finding recipes each year is always a challenge!

Need some good Passover meals? These recipes have been tested over the years and are requested over and over again.

Searching for recipes for Passover is fun for me, but this list can make it easy for you.

And if you don’t see something you like, just let me know. I aim to please.

Food for Passover is my middle name!

And if you need desserts for Passover, I have you covered here too. After all, it isn’t Passover if you don’t get to dessert.

Create your own menu but if you need some ideas, here is a Passover menu that I created in 2015 and one in 2016.

Whatever you do, don’t make it hard on yourself. Need a schedule? Check this post out.

So let’s get started, shall we?

Matzo Egg Drop Soup

This springtime matzo egg drop soup is perfect. It solves the matzo ball dilemma of sinkers or floaters by using just matzo meal and eggs that are dropped by spoonfuls into the hot broth. This forms creative little matzo discs that I just love! #matzoballs #chickensoup #passoverrecipes

1/2 c sugar
1/4 t salt
3 c matzoh farfel or broken matzoh or saltines
1/2 c sliced almonds
1/2 c pecan halves or walnuts


Line a 10 x 15″ pan with parchment paper.

Combine butter, honey, sugar, and salt in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high until boiling and golden about 5-6 minutes, stirring after 2 1/2 minutes. Stir in matzoh pieces and nuts. Microwave about 2.5  minutes longer , check and then you may need to microwave up to 2.5 minutes longer or until everything is golden.

To test if this is ready have a cold glass of water handy. Drop a small spoonful into water. If it is ready, it will turn crisp. Transfer mixture to baking sheet and let it cool for a few minutes.

With wet hands, firmly press down into an even layer. Let stand until firm, about 1 hour. Store in an airtight container.

These really do look great. Years ago, I made some sugar cookies that were partly flavoured with honey and they were outstanding so I know what you mean. I love crunchy snacks. Unfortunately, we are in our third lockdown with stay-at-home orders, it's really disheartening. Easter came and went without family.

Can I come to your house for Easter? I'll gladly eat anything you serve. It all looks wonderful. Just keep this brittle away from me because I would fill on it before I got to the meal. :)
