Are matzo meal pancakes kosher for Passover?

It’s important to check the matzo package, as not all matzo is kosher for Passover. Foods that are labeled kosher for Passover have been closely supervised by a rabbi during processing to certify they have not come in contact with any leavening agents.

What toppings can you serve with matzo meal pancakes?

Matzo meal pancakes are commonly served with jam, applesauce or sour cream. However, they can also be topped with your favorite pancake toppings such as butter, syrup, fresh fruit and whipped cream.

When should you serve matzo meal pancakes?

Matzo meal pancakes are delicious any time, but they are an especially perfect Passover recipe since they don’t contain any leavening. If you've got leftover matzo meal after your pancakes are gone, put it to use in other matzo recipes for Passover.
