'Tis the season for those impressive displays of matzo boxes to grace the ends of grocery store aisles. If you're celebrating Passover, you may already have your boxes purchased and are ready to go. Sure, a slather of cream cheese and a bit of lox is all well and good, but you can take your matzo game further. Here are 10 of our favorite ways to use the unleavened flatbread.

2. Vegetarian Matzo Ball Soup

What makes the matzo balls in this vegetarian version of the classic soup extra special is the addition of a bit of truffle salt, which gives them a boost of savory flavor.

3. Syrian Herb and Meat Latkes (Ijeh B'Lahmeh)

These latkes are makes with ground beef and fresh herbs instead of potatoes, and held together with matzo meal, making them hearty enough to move to the center of the plate. Serve them with tahini, tomato wedges, and red onion slices.

4. Lamb Meatballs with Lemon Sauce

Meatballs are often formed with breadcrumbs, but here they are replaced with matzo meal to make them Passover-friendly. The decadent, tangy sauce is similar to Hollandaise, without the butter.

5. Lamb Chops with Pesto Croute

These lamb chops are definitely worthy of taking center stage at your Passover meal. The pesto "crust" is an herby mix of basil and cilantro that's blitzed together with pine nuts and matzo meal.

6. Dorie Greenspan's Chocolate Matzo Morsels

These no-bake cookies keep well in the fridge for up to four days, but we doubt you'll need that many days to eat them all.

7. Matzo Granola with Vanilla & Almonds

While this cinnamon- and cardamom-spiced granola is perfect over yogurt or in a bowl splashed with milk, it may be best eaten straight out of hand.

8. How To Make Creamy, Crunchy Matzo Brei

Make this classic matzo brei sweet or salty, depending on your mood. If you're feeling sweet, top it with lots of cinnamon-sugar, maple syrup, or a dollop of jam. For a savory version, use salted matzo and top it with chopped fresh herbs, grated cheese, or smoked salmon.

9. Matzo Brei with Bananas and Pecans

This sweet matzo brei might not be classic, but it's definitely delicious. Enjoy it for breakfast, finished with a dollop of yogurt, and serve it with a big mug of coffee.

10. Chocolate Caramel Matzo Brittle

This candy-like treat is a Passover favorite for many. Feel free to have fun with the toppings, swapping out the chopped nuts for white chocolate or peanut butter chips, candied ginger, or simply a sprinkle of flaky sea salt.
