Moonstrips (Onion-Poppy) Matzo Brei

Passover always puts me in a Moonstrips frame of mind. What are Moonstrips? They're onion and poppy-flavored matzos made by Streit's and they are the tastiest matzos ever. They don't make a kosher for Passover version, but this matzo brei (matzo pancake-style omelet) tastes good any time of the year. This particular matzo brei recipe is adapted from The Jewish Holiday Kitchen by Joan Nathan.
