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?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
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.
Thank you! That was what I thought but was not sure. Hag Samech!
