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?
As if matzo balls weren’t delicious enough on their own, deep-frying them adds a crunchy twist!
1 tablespoon vegetable oil + more for frying
4 tablespoons chives
1 packet of Matzo Ball Mix
10 cups water
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 cups panko bread crumbs
½ cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon favorite hot sauce
1 teaspoon lime or lemon juice
