Homemade egg and onion matza

Egg and Onion Matza

Here is one of my favorite Passover foods: Egg and Onion Matza!

This soft, homemade unleavened bread has a great onion flavor and makes a delicious snack. It's easy to make, too! I usually make a large batch and freeze some, to use as needed.

I generally use fresh onions in my cooking, as was evident when I tried to access the onion powder in my spice cupboard while making the matza.

Onion powder!

I was able to sift enough powder to make my Egg and Onion Matza, but for next year, I think I'll need to remember to purchase some more onion powder. ;) These hard lumps met our trash can that day.


with some garlic powder. And there was no way we could handle big lumps of garlic! I sifted some and put it in an old spice bottle. :-)

I had the same problem with some last week.What I did was put it in the mini food processer and it smooted it all back out.

I like the fact that you are making your own matzo, but technically for Passover you you need to make it out of Matzo flour not regular flour. Even though matzo flour is matzo taken and ground up into flour, regular flour is a grain, grains with the exception of matzo are prohibited during passover. Same thing goes for the cornmeal biscuits you made the other day. They look really good, but can't be eaten during passover. Corn is a grain and no grains are allowed.

That's one of the great things about Passover... Coca-Cola makes K for P (Kosher for Passover which is different than regular kosher) Coke. It is made with real sugar and not corn syrup. You can truly taste the difference, it is the only time I will drink Coke.


Yes, Orthodox practices are much more strict and expansive in these regards. You can read a little more on our perspective in another reply the other day. And that is a good point: Many of our recipes are not Kosher for Passover (or even Kosher in many cases, e.g. we mix dairy and meat in a number of recipes) according to Rabbinic Halacha (traditional standards and practices). If you are Orthodox you will need to obtain flour specifically for Passover and adhear to the practices and standards necessary for your item to be Kosher for Passover (here is an example recipe). Of course you could always purchase your unleavened bread from the store and check to ensure it is marked Kosher for Passover.

I was just asking my husband what he thought the response would be if we used homemade onion matzo for the Lord's Supper at church. Mmmmm. Maybe some surprised looks, lol. Something tells me that the last supper's meal wasn't quite as bland as our little crackers and thimblefuls of juice.

I'm sure it was the un-frugal thing to do, tossing the onion powder lumps, but I figured by the time I needed them (another 6+ months, with the way I cook!) they would have absorbed even more moisture and flavors from the air. :|

What can I say... I like cooking with fresh/quality ingredients! I have had dishes ruined because I was trying to use up an inferior ingredient. :P :)

dont throw it away just stick it in the blender or but it in a bag and crush it . it still good.
