Deep Fried Matzo Balls


A very Texas Hanukkah recipe! These matzo balls were life changing, seriously! This year, Hanukkah begins at sundown on December 24th, aka Christmas Eve, so no matter what you are celebrating this year, be sure these matzo balls are on your table. I made them as part of a Hanukkah menu for Austin Woman this month. Because don’t we all need something a little salty, crispy and fried sometimes? 


For a true Texan Hanukkah feast check out the Dulce de Leche Doughnuts and Bourbon Braised Brisket with Cranberry Sauce!
