  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup matzo meal
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons seltzer


  • Put eggs in a food processor or blender and mix them inside
  • Then add the butter and blend again
  • Mix in the matzo meal, and then the seltzer
  • Refrigerate over night
  • Scoop out with a spoon into your hand (wet your hand first) and roll into a ball – place in pot of boiling water
  • Keep in boiling water for 15 minutes, and then bring it to a medium heat and cook for 15 more minutes
  • When ready, it will float, and the inside should be almost the same color as the outside
