Dark Chocolate Banana Matzo Brei

Adapted from Martha Stewart Living’s Banana-Maple Matzo Brei
Serves 2


  • 3 matzos (broken into 2-inch pieces)
  • 1 banana, plus more banana slices
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 2 ounces of dark chocolate, chopped into pebble-size pieces, plus 1/2 ounce dark chocolate for melting
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil plus 1 tablespoon
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt


Soak matzos in cold water for 5 minutes. Drain in a colander. Mash banana using a fork. Add oil, egg, and salt to mashed banana. Gently stir in matzos, chopped chocolate and honey. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Spread matzo mixture evenly in skillet, pressing gently. Cook until underside is golden, about 4 minutes. Flip using a spatula (mixture may break up). Cook until underside is golden, about 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a microwave-safe bowl, melt 1/2 ounce chocolate with the milk.

Transfer the banana matzo to plates. Top with banana slices, and drizzle with the melted chocolate.
