Matzo Brei
from the kitchen of Sharmagne Leland-St. John

4 matzos
4 eggs
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons grated onion. (optional)
*4 tablespoons fat

Hold the matzos under running water until they are limp; break them into small pieces.  Beat the eggs, salt pepper and onion together.  Add the crumbled matzos.  Mix well and let soak 2 minutes.
Heat the fat in a skillet until it sizzles, add the matzo mixture.  Fry until lightly brown on both sides.

*Alternative: if you are not keeping kosher.  Fry 8 slices of bacon until crisp.  Place on paper towels to drain. Pour off all but 4 tablespoons of bacon grease.  Add 1/4 cup grated asiago cheese to egg mixture.  Fry the matzo mixture in the bacon grease, stirring a bit as you would scrambled eggs.  Serve with tomato slices, garnished with parsley.
