Joey's Matzo Ball Soup

This soup is ideal for a Passover meal because it can be prepared several hours in advance. Refrigerate the strained stock and matzo balls separately. Just before serving, return the matzo balls to the stock and reheat.

Delicious Matzo Ball Soup!
April 23, 2016
Although I may have used half the bowls and pots I own -- and it took quite a bit of time to prepare -- this matzo ball soup is wonderful. I easily altered it to fit the health needs of my family. Instead of 4 eggs, I used original Egg Beaters (actually used a store brand) to replace 2 of the eggs. I used egg whites to replace the 2 other eggs. In both cases, 1/4 cup equals one egg. I took the suggestion in a previous review and whipped the whites before adding. And just before forming the matzo balls, I added 1 Tbsp of seltzer (not club soda, which has salt). I used about 1/3 less salt than the matzo ball mixture called for. I used Trader Joe's Organic Low Sodium Chicken Broth for the soup. No added salt was needed in the soup because the seasoning in the matzo balls gives it great flavor.
Pros: Will Make Again, Adaptable
Cons: Lengthy

Incredible flavor and perfect texture
April 7, 2012
These matzo balls were by far the most flavorful and delicious matzo balls I have ever had. Everyone at dinner was blown away and there is no question that I would make them again. The only change I made was that I added a touch of seltzer water---the matzo balls came out tender and fluffy with just the right amount of density. If you prefer really airy matzo balls, you can separate the eggs and beat the whites before adding them back in. The best part of this recipe was the amount of flavor the carrot, shallots, and dill give.
Pros: Quick, Easy, Will Make Again, flavorful
