  • About


  • 6 matzos
  • 2 tablespoons goose fat or butter
  • ½ onion
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup matzos meal
  • ½ teaspoon chopped parsley
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Nutmeg


Soak the matzos (unleavened bread) in water and squeeze dry. Heat the fat in the spider, add the onions, cut very fine, and fry a golden brown; then add the soaked matzos, stirring occasionally until it will not stick to the pan. Let cool, season, add the eggs and the matzo meal and shape into balls.

Drop in boiling, salt water and boil 15 minutes; drain and pour over them hot fat or butter with an onion, cut fine and browned.
