1 large onion, sliced
4 medium tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon salt
Dash of pepper
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
3 tablespoons chicken or goose schmaltz
1/2 cup soup or water (if needed)
Generously grease a 9-inch square baking dish and cover the bottom with thinly sliced onion. Break one matzo into sections and arrange over onions. Cover with slices of tomato, sprinkle with salt, pepper and sugar and top with sections of the second matzo. Cover with the remaining onion slices and top with the third matzo. Cover and bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees F.
Remove cover and if the top layer of matzo is not softened, add 1/2 cup soup or water. Continue to bake until lightly browned on top. Serve with meat or fish.
Can be made by adding sliced eggplant, green peppers or shredded cabbage between layers of matzos.
