Why I Love This Recipe

Saltine Mazo ball soup

Ingredients You'll Need

3 large eggs, beaten
1/4 c. schmaltz or shortening
1/4 c. water
3/4 c. saltine meal
Freshly ground black pepper
2 quart chicken broth
2 large carrots, cut into rounds


In a large bowl combine eggs, schmaltz, and water. Stir in matzo meal, salt, and pepper. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled, at least 2 hours.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Using wet hands, shape matzo mixture into 6 large balls. Drop matzo balls in boiling water, cover and reduce heat to a simmer. Let simmer until cooked through, 30 to 35 minutes.

Meanwhile, warm chicken broth in a large pot

When matzo balls are finished remove from water with a slotted spoon and place into serving bowls. Ladle warmed chicken broth over and serve
