Re: Matzo Brei
nope. Matzo meal is Matzo, ground up finely and used as a flour type thing. Matzo brei is Matzo , broken up in pieces, with egg, scrambled. Kind of like scrambled french toast, but with matzo instead of bread.

Re: Matzo Brei
ah. Because in German, Brei is meal (eg Maizbrei is cornmeal, Hafebrei is oatmeal, etc.)

Mmm. Matzo brei. I should figure out how to make that...

The following recipe is for those who don't like sweet breakfasts, but can certainly be adapted:

Crumble several pieces of matzo. I suggest 2x2 inch squares...ish. Put in bowl, and cover with water. Wait a minute, and then drain all the water. Add one egg per slice of matzo that you used. Mix all together. Add LOTS of salt, because matzo has NO flavor. We also like to add garlic and onion to flavor. Cook as ifd you were scrambling eggs. Enjoy!

Well, I'd need to buy eggs (normally don't). And I'd need to make sure I have a pan big enough for that kind of thing.

Funny matzah-related story: back in BBYO, we had a "matzahpalooza" program. We wanted to make as many different matzah dishes as we could. We planned to make matzah brei, but our advisor decided the stove was unsafe for cooking (he was afraid it would catch fire...). We had already soaked the matzah though, so the joke became so-and-so's "delicious wet matzah".
