Meatball Matzoh Balls are Sharon’s Famous Matzoh Balls surrounding a flavorful little meatball surprise. I made mine gluten free but you can make yours the traditional way if you like.


Units Scale

For the Matzoh Balls

  • 1 package matzoh ball mix (gluten free) with two pouches inside
  • Additional ingredients to prepare the matzoh balls according to package directions.

For the Meatballs

  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon granulated onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon granulated garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper



For the Matzoh Balls

  1. Prepare both envelopes of the matzoh ball mix.  Refrigerate for 20 minutes.

For the Meatballs

  1. In a large bowl combine the ground beef, onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper and crushed red pepper.  Set aside.

To Form the Meatball Matzoh Balls

  1. Using a cookie scoop, scoop 18 matzoh balls from the prepared mix.
  2. Flatten a matzoh ball into a thin disk.  Scoop a small meatball from the meat mixture and place it on top of the flattened disk.
  3. Bring the edges of the disk together to completely cover the meatball.  Repeat with the remaining matzoh balls and meat mixture.
  4. If there is extra meat mixture, form it into small meatballs until all the meat is used.
