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.

    Add 1/2 cold water (soda water) or cold chicken broth

    Mix well and place covered in refrigerate for serveral hours or overnight. Form balls with wet hands. Drop into boiling salt water or broth. Cook covered for 5 to 10 minutes. (it really takes longer then 5-10 minutes about 20 minutes to 30 depends on the size of the balls).
