This matzo meal recipe is easy to make and much more fun than buying it premade in the box at the store. Use for matzo ball soup or even breading chicken. Learn what matzo meal is and how you can make it! Excellent for recipes where you use breadcrumbs, such as breaded chicken!
WHAT IS MATZO MEAL
Matzo meal is simply ground up matzo. You can purchase this in the store and if you look at the matzo meal ingredients and it will simply state: Matzo, which is flour and water. It’s too simple to not make at home.
HOW TO MAKE MATZO MEAL
Simply place broken up matzo into your blender or food processor. Grind it up fine for a matzo ball recipe.
We make it the same way my mother and I made it many years ago. The only difference is now I make it with my mini chef, instead of my mom. Oh, what I wouldn’t give to make matzo meal with my mom, or even just give her a huge hug! I have so many memories in the kitchen with my mother even though she wasn’t a fan of cooking. My mother made it a point to get in the kitchen with me. I’d like to think it was so she could cook with me, but I think it was most likely so I could do the cooking instead sooner than later. 😉
Try our Vegetarian Matzo Ball Soup
Whenever we made homemade matzo ball soup, we would make our matzo meal homemade. Sure you can buy the matzo meal from the box, but really, there’s no fun in that. Making it at home is 10x more fun, and kids love to help! My mini chef loves matzo on its own as a snacking cracker, and she has a blast making it into the meal in the blender. Matzo is a thin bread that is unleavened and traditionally enjoyed during Passover. We use a high-speed blender, and it makes the best crumb since we like it pretty fine for matzo balls. We also love to use it to bread chicken with other seasonings instead of using traditional breadcrumbs.
