About the Recipe

Everyone has their preferences towards how they like their matzo balls. in my opinion, the classic recipe on the back of the Manichevitz Matzo Meal Box is still the best


  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil

  • 2 large eggs, slightly beaten

  • 1/2 cup matzo meal

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 2 tbsp soup stock (or water)


  1. Blend vegetable oil, eggs, matzo meal and salt together

  2. Add soup stock or water and mix until uniform. Cover and place in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.

  3. Bring 1 1/2 quart water to a brisk boil

  4. Remove mix from fridge, and roll matzo balls lightly (about 1 inch in diameter)

  5. Reduce flame and drop matzo balls into the water and cook at a low simmer for 30-40 minutes
