How to Make It

Step 1

Stir the eggs and the olive oil in a large bowl with a whisk until they're foamy. Stir in 3 tablespoons of the broth. Stir in the matzo meal and any of the optional seasonings. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Step 2

Heat 4 quarts of water in a 6-quart saucepot over high heat to a boil. Shape the batter into 1-inch balls. Stir the matzo balls into the boiling water. Reduce the heat to low. Cover the saucepot and cook for 35 to 45 minutes or until they're cooked through. Remove the matzo balls from the saucepot and set them aside.

Step 3

Heat the remaining broth in a 6-quart saucepot over medium-high heat to a boil. Stir the matzo balls in the saucepot. Reduce the heat to low and cook until they're heated through. Serve in 6 shallow bowls.

Recipe Tips

  • Tip: To keep the matzo balls light and fluffy, remember not to lift the lid during the first 30 to 35 minutes of cooking.

    Great for Dinner

    I also cok my dumplings in the soup. I use canned chicken as well which really enhances the flavor of this dish. I make dumplings from whatever I have at the house; could be from scratch, Bisquick, refrigerated rolls or matzo ball mix. Hubby loves them all. Ginger is a great idea but I often use white pepper or a wee bit of cayenne. : )

    cook the matzo balls in the broth

    I always cook the matzo balls straight into the boiling chicken broth. it helps flavor the balls as well. Easy shortcut tip.
