Bread-like Passover rolls

This recipe comes from a poster-sized sheet of recipes printed by Manischewitz many years ago (probably before I was born). Besides making reasonably good mock "rolls," it's also great fun for kids to make (very sticky!).


(Makes 12)


  1. Combine matzah meal with salt and sugar.
  2. In a medium saucepan, bring oil and water to a boil.
  3. Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the matzah meal, mixing well.
  4. Beat in the eggs thoroughly, one at a time (this is where it starts to get sticky). Let the mixture stand for about 15 minutes (can be refrigerated).
  5. With well-oiled hands, shape it into rolls and place on a well-greased cookie sheet (you will have to keep re-oiling your hands).
  6. Bake in a preheated degree oven for 50 minutes or until golden brown.


Difficulty: easy.
Time: 35 minutes preparation (including waiting), 50 minutes baking.
Precision: measure the ingredients.
