Mini Matzo Balls

Matzo balls expand greatly when cooked, so make sure to roll these marble sized before dropping in water. If the cooked matzo balls break in a fondue pot, just ladle them out with the soup!

Serves: 8


  • 1 cup matzo meal
  • 4 eggs
  • 1⁄2 cup seltzer or club soda
  • 1⁄3 cup margarine, softened
  • 2 Tbsp. parsley, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Pour matzo meal in a cup and stir with a fork to break up any lumps.
  • In a bowl, beat eggs with a fork. Add seltzer, margarine, and parsley and mix well. Sprinkle in salt and pepper to taste.
  • Slowly stir in matzo meal. Keep stirring until mixture is smooth. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or until batter has stiffened.
