Don’t need to overcook that matzah brei

I made fried matzo also known as matzah brei this morning for me and the little F’ers.  I am not much of a cook, but usually I make pretty good fried matzo.  I couldn’t find my usual recipe so I think I made it a little different today (although I’m not sure how many different recipes there can really be – maybe just different ratios of egg to matzo).  As I was letting it cook in the frying pan, I started to wonder if I’m really cooking the eggs well enough.  I want to make sure we’re not going to get sick from undercooked eggs.  Doing a little research, it appears that pasteurized eggs have a very low rate of disease.  I think we should be safe, especially as I probably overcooked the matzo brei and we enjoyed them a bit on the dry side this morning.
