This kosher for Passover recipe for the Matzo Grinder is our take on the familiar hot oven-baked sandwich known as a grinder. The Matzo Grinder is stuffed with mushrooms, spinach, cheese, and alfredo sauce, topped with hot peppers, and is truly a unique Passover recipe experience.

Ingredients (12)


Matzo Grinder

Quick and Easy Authentic Alfredo Sauce

Start Cooking

Prepare the Matzo Grinder

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. Lay one matzo flat in a baking dish lined with aluminum foil.

  3. Add the spinach and mushrooms and 1/2 cup of shredded cheese to the matzo.

  4. Spread the alfredo sauce onto the second matzo and place it sauce side down on top of the mushrooms, spinach, and cheese.

  5. Top with the Tuscanini Hot Calabrese Peppers and the rest of the shredded cheese.

  6. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until all of the cheese is melted.

  7. Cool for two to three minutes before slicing and serving.

Prepare the Alfredo Sauce

  1. Melt butter in the saucepan over a low flame.

  2. Increase the heat to medium/low and allow the butter solids to fall to the bottom of the pan.

  3. Remove the butter solids from the bottom of the pan. Decrease the flame to low.

  4. Add fresh garlic and saute for one to two minutes.

  5. Add milk and cream, stirring often.

  6. Add parmesan cheese. Stir until creamy and smooth.

  7. Add salt and pepper to taste.


To make this sauce extra delicious, add black pepper liberally and/or red pepper flakes. 



Leave out the hot peppers - the peppers we use in this recipe are super delicious but they are spicy. Sandwiches like this one love spicy ingredients but you can leave them out if you would like. Substitute red bell peppers.


Experiment with different cheeses - we used a pizza cheese blend that worked really well but you can try other cheeses like swiss, gouda, and edam. As much as I love feta cheese, I would stay away from that one here is it does not go well with the alfredo sauce.


Tuna Matzo Grinder - a classic lunch grinder recipe. Leave out the alfredo sauce and mushrooms and substitute tuna salad.


Pineapple Pizza Matzo Grinder - leave out the alfredo sauce and mushrooms and add pineapple tidbits and marinara sauce instead.
