Matzah Ball Soup

Sabrina Stratton


This is my chicken matzah ball soup recipe. It was my first time making it on my own and this was actually a learning process too. Served it during the Passover Seder April 2019 and it was HUGE hit and kids loved the matzah balls, light and fluffy. And the broth wasn't overpowering.
