What in the world are Meatball Matzoh Balls???
As much as I love Matzoh Balls, this year I wanted Matzoh Balls that were fun! I wasn’t interested in adding vegetables to turn them different colors, that’s just vegetable Matzoh Balls. I thought what if you could find a little surprise inside when you cut into it? What if there was another little ball inside? Like a meatball surprise??? You could have Meatball Matzoh Balls!!!
And so, Meatball Matzoh Balls were born.
How to make Meatball Matzoh Balls
It all starts with Sharon’s Famous Matzoh Ball recipe.
Start with the Matzoh Balls
FYI – I share my Famous Matzoh Ball Recipe with anyone that wants it. True Story.
If you are not gluten free I can suggest an alternative recipe that is equally as complicated.
For the Meatballs
I ended up using just 1/2 pound of ground beef for the surprise meatballs, but added lots of spices! I even added a small amount of crushed red pepper to give them a little kick. Perfect for your Seder chicken soup!
I did end up with a few extra meatballs after stuffing the matzoh balls, but I added those to the matzoh ball cooking pot to cook. They are super cute added to the bowls of Seder chicken soup with Meatball Matzoh Balls.
Forming the Meatball Matzoh Balls
I first formed a whole plate of matzoh balls using a cookie scoop.
Then I flattened a matzoh ball and filled it with a small seasoned meatball.
The next thing is to wrap the matzoh ball around the meatball and roll it into a ball.
Cooking the Meatball Matzoh Balls and Extra Meatballs
I cooked the Meatball Matzoh Balls and extra meatballs all in one pot. It gave the Meatball Matzoh balls extra flavor, and avoided making another pot dirty.
Here’s the Recipe for Meatball Matzoh Balls
I made my Meatball Matzoh Balls gluten free, but you can use a glutenous matzoh ball mix just as easily.Print

SHABBOS UNDER PRESSURE MEANS PRESSURE FREE PASSOVER!
FYI: I’m here to help make it way easier for you and reduce your pressure with my book “Shabbos Under Pressure“. I’ve found that using my electric pressure cooker to prepare for Passover, makes the cooking way easier and more efficient. For example, instead of cooking a huge pot of chicken soup on the stove for three hours, taking up valuable space on my stovetop, I can make even better soup in just an hour/hour and a half in my Instant Pot. I’ve even put together a Shabbos Under Pressure Passover Recipe Guide to help you convert the recipes in the book to Passover friendly recipes. If you don’t already have “Shabbos Under Pressure” now would be a great time to order it to ensure that you receive it with enough time to plan and cook your Passover meals.

Great recipe. Can I mix the meat mixture with the matzo ball mixture together and then make balls and drop them into the boiling broth? Thanks
