Moonstrips (Onion-Poppy) Matzo Brei Recipe

Moonstrips (Onion-Poppy) Matzo Brei on a blue and white plate.

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.

  • 3 Moonstrip matzos
  • 2 large eggs
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoons butter or chicken fat


  1. Break the matzos and soak in boiling water for 15 minutes. Drain and squeeze dry.

  2. Add the eggs and salt to taste.

  3. Taking spoonfuls of batter at a time, fry in the butter or chicken fat, patting the center down a bit. If you want larger matzo pancakes, just add more batter each time. Fry until golden brown on one side, then turn and fry on the other.
