Best Easy Matzo Balls Chicken Soup Recipe

What is a Passover Seder table worth without some traditional Jewish matzo ball chicken soup?

Matzo balls (or matzo kleis if you’re Yiddish) is what many people consider their favorite Kosher for Passover meal.

It’s kind of “expected” during Passover:

  • Your kids probably expect it. Because what else will they eat when they can’t eat their favorite Chometz food for a week? 
  • Your guests definitely expect it, especially since they probably brought you some great Passover gifts.

Don’t worry if you’re not sure how to make matzo ball soup yet, soon enough you’ll be making it from scratch and you’ll discover how easy it is.
