Instructions

  1. 1

    Buy unsalted, plain matzo to make your matzo meal. Though you can bake your own matzo, it's a laborious practice if you're just baking it to turn it into matzo meal.

  2. 2

    Use a food processor to create matzo meal. Put a few pieces of matzo into your processor and process on high for a minute. Check the meal for consistency. If there are still large pieces of matzo, process for a few more seconds. Keep processing until the matzo meal is as finely ground as you want it.

  3. 3

    Place matzo in a plastic bag if you don't want to use a food processor to create the matzo meal. Seal the bag and crush the matzo with a rolling pin or with a small mallet. To finish your matzo meal, pour it into a shallow tray, such as a baking sheet, and crush it further.

  4. 4

    Use the matzo meal immediately or place it in a sealed plastic bag to store for later use.

Tips and warnings

  • Your matzo meal might not be as consistent when you use the plastic bag and rolling pin method.
  • You can use matzo meal as a replacement for binders like bread crumbs and rice in meatball or loaf recipes, and in vegetable stuffings.
  • Egg matzo and flavored matzo don't work well in baking, so they aren't good choices for matzo meal.
