Subject:  Kvia'at seudah
Message:  Dear Rabbi,

I noticed you previously replied that "Items eaten as a bread are hamotzie, including bagels, rolls, pizza, and Matzah. "

Recently in our Kniss there was a seudat misvah and they brought in "mezzonot" challah ( I guess with fruit juice or the like). However people stuffed their plates with salads, meat/chicken, rice potatoes etc along with this "mezzonot" bread. In short a whole meal.

The Rabbi ( A Sephardi) ruled to say mezzonot and I had few words with him but did not want to make a scene ...

Question: (after the fact) should the congregants have blessed "Hamossi" or Mezzonot?

10x 4 a prompt reply and there is another seudah scheduled soon..

Reply:  Hamotzi! My father in Ohr Yitzchok Siman 61 says that egg matzohs that you are kovea seuda on, the Beracha is Hamotzi.
Ask the Rabbi to give a class in Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim, Siman 158 #1 & 168 #6, 7 & 8 for starters. Please let us know how he learns the Halachos. I'm serious. I'd to like know what they hold. They must have some explanation.
