Ingredients
  • Roasted Apple Charoset
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 apples, peeled, cored, and cut into ½-inch pieces
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  • ½ cup chopped almonds
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • Matzo Brei
  • 5 sheets matzo, broken into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 7 tablespoons butter, melted
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • Confectioners' sugar, for dusting
Directions
  1. Make the charoset: In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the apples to the pan and cook until golden brown, about 6 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Transfer to a medium bowl and stir in the walnuts, almonds and maple syrup.
  2. For the Matzo Brei: In a medium bowl, combine the matzo and milk. Soak the matzo until soft, about 15 seconds. Drain the matzo and return to the bowl. Add the eggs, salt and 2 tablespoons of melted butter and mix well.
  3. In a large nonstick pan over medium heat, add the remaining 3 tablespoons of butter. Pour in the matzo mixture and let sit for 30 seconds. Using a spatula, move the egg mixture continuously until most of the eggs are cooked, about 3 minutes. Flip the matzo mixture over and continue to cook until lightly browned on the second side, about 1 minute. Remove from the pan and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Top with the roasted apple charoset and a dusting of confectioners' sugar.
