Matzo Stuffing

Matzo is an unleavened bread (like a cracker) traditionally eaten during the Jewish holiday of Passover. You can stuff a turkey or chicken with this stuffing, or put it in a casserole dish and bake it.

Matzo Stuffing
1 package of matzo (any variety)
1 cup chopped brown or yellow onion
1 cup chopped celery
5 tbsp. STAR Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 cups chicken stock/broth
Salt and Pepper to taste

Heat the STAR Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a large frying pan. Add chopped celery and onion, and sauté until the vegetables are soft and translucent, about 7-8 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.

In the meantime, break the matzo into small cracker sizes and place into a large bowl. Once the veggies are done, transfer them into the bowl with the broken matzo. Stir lightly.

Add the chicken broth to the veggie and matzo mixture and gently stir all ingredients together. Sample the mixture to make sure all the ingredients are seasoned just right. You may want to add some additional salt and pepper, depending on taste.

At this point you can stuff your turkey/chicken or put the mixture into a dish, cover it with foil, and bake at 350F for about 45 minutes.  If the turkey is cooking at the same time, baste the stuffing with a bit of the turkey juice first.
