I’m inclined to drizzle nearly anything with good olive oil, so I can’t explain why it took me so long — we’re talking decades — to give matzo brei the EVO treatment.

This morning I let my matzo brei go a little too long in the pan. Fearing it would be unpalatably tough, I grabbed my cruet of Núñez de Prado oil and proceeded to drizzle, er, douse it. With a little sprinkling of coarse sea salt, the results were terrific. Live and learn.
