An excellent recipe I boiled them in chicken stock to make them even more delicious! - 22 Feb 2014
I changed this recipe a bit - My family likes small light and fluffy matzo balls. I quadrupled the recipe. I used selter instead of water - as the carbonated water helps to fluff up the matzo balls. I used only a tsp. of olive oil instead of the margarine and added some salt, pepper and garlic powder to the mixture. I refrigerated the mixture for about 1/2 hour and rolled them into small balls with wet hands to help keep their shape. I let them boil in slated water with the pot cover on for about 25 minutes - no peaking - or the matzo balls will flip and fall to the bottom of the pot. I did not cook the matzo balls in the chicken soup - as I did not want the soup to become murky from the matzo balls as they cooked. I also froze them in a single layer on cookie sheet and then placed them in a zip lock bag - this way I can take out as many matzo balls as I wanted and they wouldn't be stuck together. - 19 Apr 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This receipe will give you "sinkers"- if you want floaters -3 eggs no oil, very little water, 1/2 C matzo meal. Refrigerate 20-30min. Drop in rapidly boiling water/chicken soup cover cook for 20 minutes. The larger the pot the better. - If yor soup has the veggies removed make it in the soup. - 26 Apr 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
