Chelkas Yaakov - Matzos That Are a Little Broken On the Side Are Okay for Lechem Mishnah
If the Matzos are broken a little bit around the sides it is still regarded as a Shalem for Lechem Mishnah paskens the Chrelkas Yaakov (#92). The reason that we need Lechem Mishnah is because we need a Challah that is Chashuv and a Challah that is missing a small piece does not lose its Chashivus. Although there are some Acharonim that are machmir, since the Mitzvah of Lechem Mishnah is only M'Derabanan one can be lenient.
