Matzo Farfel

Giora Shimoni
Looking for a starchy side dish your kids will like to eat for dinner during the week of Passover? Serve this Matzo Farfel with meat and a green vegetable for a satiating Passover meal.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes


  • 5 pieces of matzo
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup matzo meal
  • 3 Tablespoons oil
  • 1 1/2-2 cups chicken soup broth


1. Break matzot into a bowl. Pour water over the matzot to dampen, and then drain after a minute or two.
2. Add beaten eggs and matzo meal. Mix well, breaking matzot into even smaller pieces.
3. Heat oil in a deep frying pan.
4. Fry matzot until slightly browned.
5. Add broth. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes or until most of the broth has been absorbed.

Matzo Farfel, Member DorothyZaharoff

Yes, thank you....This is the exact recipe I was looking for because this is the same way that I always made it but I forgot the order of doing it. So again I thank you...It is delicious...
