How to cook
Gather and portion ingredients.
Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl and season with salt and pepper. Whisk until scrambled.
Break up the sheets of matzo and drop into the bowl with the scrambled egg. Stir to coat the matzo. Let sit and absorb while you chop onion.
Cut the onion in half and peel keeping the root end intact. Make a few cuts into the onion with the knife parallel to the cutting board. Then slice into strips and dice.
Melt the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chopped onion and saute until translucent.
Add the matzo and egg to the pan and fry for about 5 minutes flipping pieces occasionally until egg is cooked.
Top the matzo brei with slices of smoked salmon, fresh dill, and dollops of creme fraiche.
