Spinach Matzah Bake

A Passover recipe for spinach matzah bake.

I sort of made this up from other recipes I had seen. Not too heavy and goes well with almost anything being served.


4 tablespoons margarine

1 onion, chopped and lightly sautéed

1 box button mushrooms, also sautéed

1 box frozen spinach, defrosted

3 eggs

3 matzot, dipped in cold water

1 tablespoon lemon rind

Salt and pepper to taste

Few grinds of nutmeg


Heat oven to 375 F.

Spread a square baking dish with 2 tablespoons margarine. Beat eggs with salt and pepper.

Dip softened matzah in egg mixture one at a time. Place one matzah in pan.

Combine spinach with onion/mushroom mixture. Season with lemon rind and nutmeg.

Spread half of mixture on first layer. Dip the second matzah in egg mixture and cover with the rest of the spinach mixture. Dip last matzah in egg and place on top.

Melt remaining margarine with remaining egg mixture and pour over the top of the layers. Bake for about 30 minutes. Cool, wrap carefully, and freeze.
