What is the Difference... a Passover ?

What is the difference between matzah farfel and broken up matzah? I am making a recipe that calls for matzah farfel and do not have enough but have plenty of matzah. Can I substitute?
Thanks.

I would think you could substitute matzoh that you break into the size pieces like matzoh farfel (maybe use a rolling pin?). That's what I would do.

I agree with Karen0. Matzo Farfel simply consists of matzo broken into small pieces. Matzo farfel is used as a bread substitute during the Passover holiday in kosher-for-Passover recipes, especially in oven-baked dishes.
