A Bacon Wrapped Matzo Ball????Top Chef Ilan Hall serves a bacon wrapped matzo ball at his LA restaurant, The Gorbals. You’ll have to use this link to read the story….. So as not to violate National Public Radio permission policy I am not cut and pasting this story in its entirety.I don’t think I can even use a photograph from NPR without permission.
My favorite recipe matzah ball recipe follows:
4 large eggs
½ cups seltzer
2 tablespoons chicken fat or vegetable oil
1 cup matzah meal
Salt and pepper per taste
Mix the eggs well with a fork. Add the chicken fat or oil, soda water, matzah meal and the salt and pepper. Mix well. Cover and refrigerate for several hours. Dip your hands in cold water and make about 12 balls slight small than ping pong balls. Bring water to boil in a large pot. Add salt to water and place the matzah balls in the water. Cover and simmer about 30 minutes.
