Ouch! The matzo balls were so hard that when I tried to cut into them with a spoon one popped out of the bowl! Don't like using a knife for soup... Read More

This is a great soup that my kids love. I have made some simple changes though. By using Bouillon tablets I am able to throw in a vegetable tablet with the chicken broth and it's a nicer flavor then the ready made broth plus the kids get some extra vegetables. I also changed the parsley for Dill Weed which gives the soup an added kick of flavor and for the kids I make smaller matzo balls. But I love the recipe for the matzo balls and find they work out every time!!! Read More

Made this during the week and it is very good. I didn't have white pepper so I used black and it worked fine and I used dried parsley. I appreciate basic simple food. Read More

Excellent recipe. I tried making matzo ball soup for the first time and impressed the family with this one. I used homemade chicken broth which I think makes this more authentic. Your Bubie would be proud hillrockra. lol. Thanks for sharing. I'll make it again soon. Read More

I added diced onion to this and it was delicious. Oh the broth was super salty. I will buy less sodium chicken broth next time. I also used 4 cups of chicken broth and 2 cups of veggie broth. When making the balls I added a few tablespoons of fresh cut parsley. Read More
