Spinach, eggs and matzo are mixed with salt, pepper and a dash of freshly ground nutmeg, and cooked in a skillet to make a stunningly simple open-faced omelette.
INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):
- 2 (10 ounce) packages frozen chopped spinach
- 3 matzo crackers
- 4 eggs, beaten
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 pinch ground nutmeg
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
Heat the spinach in a saucepan with 1/2 cup of water, until completely thawed. Strain the spinach, reserving half the amount of liquid.
Crumble the matzo into a medium-size mixing bowl and pour the spinach and the remaining liquid over them. Mix thoroughly until the matzo are softened. Add the Parmesan, eggs, salt, nutmeg and pepper.
Heat the margarine in a 12 inch skillet and add the spinach mixture. Cook on medium heat, uncovered for 5 minutes on each side. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan and serve immediately.
