2 large eggs
2 tablespoons butter, at room temperature, or chicken fa
1/2 cup matzo meal
1/2 teaspoon salt, plus 1 teaspoon
2 tablespoons chicken soup or water
1/4 cup parsley, finely chopped
12 cups water

Beat eggs and butter in a medium bowl with fork until blended. Stir in matzo meal and 1/2 teaspoon salt, then soup and parsley. When well blended, cover and refrigerate 20-30 minutes to allow matzo to absorb liquid. Meanwhile bring the 12 cups of water and remaining tablespoon salt to a boil in a 4-5 quart pot over high heat.

Form rounded tablespoonfuls matzo mixture into balls about 2" in diameter (you should have about 8) Carefully drop into water. When water returns to a simmer, cover and cook 25-30 minutes until balls swell slightly and rise to
