Kicking off a series of recipes that were filed as either Passover or Jewish in one of the collections I acquired, here is a recipe for Baked Matzo Rolls. I’m going to be learning about these traditional foods because I am not Jewish and I didn’t have a lot of exposure to Jewish foods before this. One thing I learned right off the bat is that matzo meal – which this recipe calls for – is made from crispy matzo ground into a flour-like consistency. Matzo flour is specially made from wheat, spelt, barley, rye or oat and follows specific rules in processing. Crispy matzo is made from matzo flour; matzo meal is made from crispy matzo. From what I can tell, these will be a rounded roll. Many photos show an X-shaped cut across the top of the rolls but I don’t know if that is required.
