Matzah mac & cheese

By | April 11, 2012

Ready for one more fun, cheesy thing to do with your matzah?

Chol hamoed may be nearing its end, but if you haven’t had the matzah version of macaroni & cheese this Pesach, you should really make this.

I would tell you to make it for the kids, but what you actually need to do is make it for the grown-ups. And hide the evidence. This stuff is good.

Matzah mac & cheese is one of those great one-bowl meals.

Break up some matzah and throw in a bunch of delicious things like sauteed onions, melted butter, sour cream, and mozzarella — and before you know it, hey! Dinner’s ready!

Oddly enough (or luckily enough), matzah mac & cheese kind of tastes like the real thing. It might have been the whole wheat matzah I used that reminded me — slightly — of whole wheat penne.

Then again, I suppose I could have just been daydreaming. Try it, and let me know.

What I can tell you for sure, though, is that this dish beats Pesach noodles by a loooooooooong stretch.

Good-bye, weird fake noodles. Hello, meal of super cheesy matzah!

I made this Sunday night to use up matzah and it was YUMMY! I didnt have milk or sour cream so I used one cup of 18% cooking cream and 1/2 cup of water and it turned out fine!

Thanks for the recipes Tali!

Funny, you’re the second person to tell me about making this dish on Sunday! Glad it worked out, and good to know that substitution works.
