Recipe: Veggie Matzo Brie

Accented With Cheese


Not your grandmother’s matzo brie, this adds vegetarian flair: carrots and broccoli, some tasty cheese, and for an international touch, Dijon mustard and pesto! The recipe is courtesy of Cabot Creamery, which has many delicious recipes at—and makes the best butter and Monterey Jack to use in this recipe.


  • 1-1/2 sheets matzo
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup grated Monterey Jack
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1/2 cup grated carrots
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh broccoli or frozen broccoli, thawed and squeezed dry
  • Prepared basil pesto* (optional)

  1. Break matzo into 2-inch pieces. Place in medium bowl and cover with warm water. Set aside until softened, about 5 minutes.
  2. Drain matzo, squeeze dry and return to bowl. Add eggs, cheese, mustard and salt; whisk to combine.
  3. Preheat broiler. In an 8" nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add carrots and broccoli and cook, stirring, until vegetables are crisp-tender, about 5 minutes.
  4. Pour matzo mixture over vegetables in skillet and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook until underside is nicely browned, about 10 minutes (top will not be set).
  5. Place skillet under broiler (cover handle with heavy duty foil if not heat-proof). Cook mixture until top is set and golden, 3 to 4 minutes. Cut into quarters and serve. Top with pesto, if desired.
