19 Matzah Recipes That Will Make You Excited For Passover

Matzah tiramisu??? OK!!!!

Matzah is no aphrodisiac. On the first two days of Passover, it’s a novelty. Sure, matzah tastes like a Saltine tried intermittent fasting. But the fact that Jews haven’t had to eat it for a year makes it more bearable. Passover day three is when the desperation sets in. Matzah with butter can only go so far. At some point you’ll need to consume some actual nutrients. Plus, the sight of the dreaded crackers instills a deep rage within you.

Take a breath and step away from the Yehuda Matzos.

Hey Alma and our partner site The Nosher are here to help. Since anyone keeping kosher for Passover is eating a ton of matzah, you might as well get creative with it. Courtesy of The Nosher, here are 19 different things you can do with matzah to spice up your Passover.

Stay strong, you’ll get to eat grains again soon enough!
