Matzo Balls are easy to make. My Mom use to fry some left over ones in Butter..till they were golden brown. But I don't remember too many being left over, so I think she made extras just so she could fry them for us kids. She was a good Mom who did things like that. :)

I use them as dumplings sometimes for Chicken and dumplings or in a Beef stew.
