1. Salted Toffee Matzah

2. Matzah Nachos

These machos (aka matzah nachos) are described as "the perfect cure for Manischewitz wine hangovers" by the author of the recipe. For it, matazh is broken up into "chips" and baked before being covered in melted cheese. They're easy to make in about 15 minutes, and you can top them with pico de gallo, guacamole, and sour cream—or whatever you've got in the fridge, maybe even last night's grilled veg.

4. Matzo-rella Sticks

What's not to love about fried (unleavened) bread that's filled with cheese? Though they may not be the healthiest option on the list, they are a great snack to have alone, paired with the classic marinara, or with any sauce or topping you have on hand.

5. Matzah Brei Mac 'n Cheese

This iteration of the classic, comfort-food dish looks like a mix between scrambled eggs and a cheesy pancake since the typical pasta noodles are swapped for (bet you guessed it, matzah). But it tastes every bit as good as the OG and only requires five ingredients to whip up.
