- FIRST: picking up three matzot, including a broken one between two whole ones, they say the usual blessing over the bread.
- SECOND: putting the lower matzo back on the plate and holding the upper one and the broken one, they say a special blessing over the matzo.
Then, having broken off pieces from the upper and middle matzot, at least the size of a kazait (half of a round matzo or one square matzo), you have to eat both pieces together, without being distracted by conversations, while reclining to the left.
Baruch Atah Adonai, Eloheinu melech ha’olam, ha-motzi lechem min ha-aretz

Baruch Atah Adonai, Eloheinu melech ha’olam, asher kid’shanu b’mitzvotav v’tzivanu al achilat matzah
Blessed are You, Lord our God, Ruler of the Universe, who has sanctified us with His commandments and has commanded us on the eating of matzo.
