Wow! Until last week my only experiences with matzoh balls came from a recipe on a matzoh flour box. Last week, DH was a bit under the weather and was craving Jewish deli style chicken soup with big chunks of carrots and matzoh balls. I found your recipe, made about half the recipe in 1 1/2 to 2 inch balls that were done in about 20 minutes. They were pillows instead of grenades! You need to re-name this recipe to "Mirjam's Marvelous, Matchless Matzoh Balls".
Perfect! I halved the recipe, as I only needed it for 4 people for a seder, and we still had plenty left over! Lite and fluffy- just as advertised. And easy to make! I gave people two options for the soup: a light chicken broth from manischevitz, or Curried Pumpkin Soup (35411)- which was SO good with these matzoh balls!
I really don't know what it is, but I think you have to be part jewish to make good matzo balls!! I made these (granted the first time I ever tried) and they sank :( My BF thou he knows how to handle a good matzo ball. LOL thanks for posting, I will try my hand at this again, if the BF ever refuses to make me good Matzo balls.
Oh My! My husband who likes "sinkers" made these last night to sit in my Chicken soup for Pesach and he said he'll never make "sinkers" again! Hallelujah! Thanks for a great recipe. Happy Pesach!
i had never had matzoh balls before but i found the flour cheap and thought what the heck and put some in my chicken soup these are great it is something different from noodles and filling kids would like these i think
These were really good Matzoh balls. I cut the recipe in half and still had plenty of dough. I didn't have soda water so I used 7-up. I will be making these again. Next time I will do as Mirj suggested (later on)and use water with a small amount of baking soda. I put the matzoh balls is some chicken soup I had made in my crockpot.
