The Ten Commandments (#13)

In April, the timing worked out pretty well to watch The Ten Commandments. Our movie night fell not to far from Passover, so our meal was based on the first Passover Seder. We had roasted lamb with some vegetable sides, some homemade unleavened bread, and red wine.

I don't always share recipes here, because I find most of my recipes with a quick Google search. In this case, the unleavened bread is a family recipe that my mother would make every Passover, so I am going to share it with you. Depending on how you cook them, they can come out like a thin crispy cracker or as more of a thin bread. Do not worry about appearance. This bread/cracker is meant to be broken and shared.

Unleavened Bread/Crackers for Passover


1 cup warm water

2 tsp sugar

1 tsp table salt

3 tbsp melted butter

2 ½ to 3 cups all purpose flour

1 egg, slightly beaten

Optional toppings:

Coarse salt, coarse pepper, sesame seed



Heat oven to 400 degrees.


Add sugar, table salt and butter to the warm water.


Gradually stir in flour. Knead until smooth. Divide into 4 equal size balls.


Roll into circles and place on GREASED cookie sheets.

Brush with beaten egg and sprinkle with toppings.

Bake 10 minutes.

This makes 4 large crackers which are meant to be broken or torn from and shared. This may seem like a lot, but it goes quickly and is ofter a big hit. If you have more than 5 or 6 dinner guests, I would double the recipe.
