Leftover Matzo. Leftover Easter Eggs. Leftover Salsa.
Mama’s building cultural bridges one meal at a time.
For the unitiated, Matzo is an unleavened bread (well, more like a crisp cracker) traditionally eaten during the week-long Passover holiday.
Over the years, I’ve found that Matzo is a great conduit for leftovers and especially for making a quick snack:
Matzo + Pasta Sauce + Pepperoni + Mozzarella = Matzo Pizza
Matzo + Hummus + Cucumbers + Red Peppers = Matzo Mediterranean
Matzo + Refried Beans + Jalapeños + Cheese = Matzo Nachos
If you’ve never purchased Matzo, you should give it a try. It makes a fun and interesting sandwich for the kids’ lunches and a crunchy alternative to regular chips for dips and salsas. Oh… Gluten Free Matzo is available.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to get back to brokering peace in the Middle East…
