Passover is approaching and that means nothing other than an overflow of matzo everywhere. Although I'm not Jewish myself, my former boss was, and matzo was something she indulged in during the Passover holiday. Come to think of it, she ate matzo on more than just that occasion. I was first introduced to matzo through her and though it's not the tastiest to me by itself, finding matzo recipes for Passover that I could try has given me a new outlook on it.
Matzo, which is interchangeably spelled matza, matzah, or matzoh, is an unleavened flatbread that is custom to Jewish cuisine. Since I am Christian and partake in a fast known as the Daniel Fast at least once a year (sometimes two or three), the only type of bread I can eat — if any — is unleavened. That's where matzo comes into play. While Passover isn't my time of year to indulge in matzo, making sure that I have all the recipes possible for when the time comes to insert it into my diet is a big deal.
Whether you're looking to change up your regular menu for Passover, try something new for your Daniel Fast, or just wanting to see what the hype is about, these 11 matzo recipes will give you everything you need to get the party started.
