Matzoh Balls

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Mirj2338

These make light and fluffy matzoh balls. If you want hard as a rock matzoh balls (also known as Jewish hand grenades) you'll have to look for a recipe somewhere else.

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".
