Mish-Mosh for Passover Related:   dairy, Passover, vegetarian

Prep time: 15 min

Cook time: 45 min-1 hr

Yield: 15 3

This recipe is a family treasure! My mother concocted and named it when we were small children. Now, some five decades later, it is still a staple dish for Passover among our family and friends.


  • 12-15 medium to large bananas
  • 1/2 -3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 -2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 pound box of cottage cheese
  • 6 sheets matzah
  • 2 sticks butter or margarine, softened


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease well a 12” x 18” glass baking dish. Mash all the bananas. Mix sugar, cinnamon and salt in a small bowl. Add the mixture, along with vanilla, to cottage cheese in a large bowl. Add mashed bananas and mix well. Butter both sides of the six sheets of matzah. Place two sheets in a well greased oblong glass dish covering the bottom and pour 1/3 of the banana/cottage cheese mixture over the matzah. Place two more sheets of matzah in baking dish and pour the second 1/3 of the mixture over. Repeat with the remaining matzah and mixture. Bake 45 minutes to 1 hour, until the top layer is sort of crispy brown.
