    Is there anything that could be used as a Matzo substitute? I don’t live near anywhere that sells this. Thank you.

      Hi Donna, not really. This is a dish specifically created to use Matzo during Passover. Are you looking for a dish that is suitable for Passover? If not, I suggest a delicious bread and butter pudding instead. Cheers, Lisa
