600 g matzo crackers
125 g butter
6 eggs
3 tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley
2 onions, peeled & finely grated
155 g matzo meal
10 cups (2½ litres) chicken stock


Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil.
Break matzo crackers into small pieces, and place in a large bowl. Add water to cover; allow to soak for a few minutes until soft. Drain off excess water.
Melt butter in a large frying pan over medium heat and stir in drained matzos. Stir until mixture is dry and slightly brown. Remove from heat then mix in eggs, SIDS SALT & PEPPER to taste, parsley and onions. Mix in just enough matzo meal to make mixture hold together. Roll one golf ball-size matzo ball. Place matzo ball in boiling water to test the mixture. The ball must rise to the top of the water and not break apart. If it does not rise, then too much matzo meal was added. In this case, add another beaten egg to the mixture and try again. When desired consistency is reached, roll all of mixture into golf ball size spheres.
In a large saucepan, bring stock to a slow boil then add balls to stock. Serve soup as the balls rise to the top of the stock.
