Matzoh Molletes Rancheros

Matzo Molletes Rancheros with a fried egg
Matzoh Molletes Rancheros
This crispy matzo based breakfast is a cross between molletes and huevos rancheros. I used beans from a can and my homemade chiltepin salsa.


  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 sheet of Matzoh
  • 1/2 cup refried beans
  • 1/4 cup prepared salsa
  • 1 thin slice red onion
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Melt the butter over medium heat in a skillet.
  • Gently crack the egg into the skillet and fry until the edges are crispy and the yolk is set to desired firmness, about 5-8 minutes.
  • Carefully spread beans over the matzoh so as to not crack the sheet. The beans don’t have to be hot yet.
  • Place the sheet of bean covered matzoh in a toaster oven, or full sized oven and toast until warmed, about 5 minutes. You can either use the toast setting or bake at 250 degrees.
  • Drizzle salsa over the warm beans. Top with red onion and the egg. Enjoy!
