What is Matzo Kugel?
Matzo Kugel is a pudding made often during the Passover holiday. Although most people eat a sweet version of Matzo Kugel, prepared with fruit, eggs and nuts, they can also eat a savory version featuring vegetables.
Why do we eat Matzo during Passover?
During the eight days of Passover, observers should avoid eating five types of grains which rise: wheat, rye, spelt, barley and oat. The only exception allowed during Passover is eating one of these grains in the form of an unleavened flatbread, today known as matzo, matza or matzah.
