Chronicle poll results: Matzo toppings

We asked our readers about their favorite matzo toppings. Here's what they said.

Last week, the Chronicle asked its readers in an electronic poll the following question: “What topping do you prefer on matzo?” Of the 229 people who responded, 37% said “sweet”; 36% said “savory”; and 27 % said “other.” Comments were submitted by 94 people. A few follow.

My real preference is matzo brei, soaked in egg and water, and fried in light oil with sweet toppings — as opposed to friends who like it soaked in egg and milk, fried in schmaltz with salt.

Schmaltz with salt and pepper — heaven!

It’s only eight days and cream cheese and matzo is what gets our crew through the holiday.

Simply put, butter and jelly … unless any delicious charoset is somehow left from the seder!

Avocado, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Yum.

Slice a banana or plantain on top of a sheet of matzo and microwave for 30 seconds. Delicious.

Chopped liver. Second favorite is cream cheese.

Melted chocolate spread that has brown sugar in it and a bit of oil or margarine, spread on matzos. Passover paradise.

Covered in dark chocolate and topped with candied ginger and flaky sea salt.

Breakstone Whipped Unsalted Butter and a sprinkle of coarse salt. Nothing better!

I am a big fan of whipped cream cheese on matzo. And a pastrami sandwich with vinegar-based coleslaw on matzo is one of my seasonal favorites!

No topping. Good matzo doesn’t need any help!

Pizza sauce, cheese and an egg in the middle, baked.

Whether you like sweet matzo, savory matzo, or just eat it plain, eating matzo and keeping Passover is vital to the future of the Jewish people. PJC
