Matzo Bagels

OK, so they’re not really bagels. But by day 6 of Passover, anything that can even remotely be turned into a real sandwich looks (and tastes) pretty darn good to us.


  • 1/2 cup water

  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil

  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1 cup matzo meal

  • 3 eggs


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease a large cookie sheet.

  • In a medium saucepan, combine the water, vegetable oil, sugar and salt. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Dump in the matzoh meal, all at once, and stir until the mixture clumps together and comes away cleanly from the sides of the pan. (This is an adult job – the mixture can splatter and boil up when you mix it all together.) Remove from heat and let cool for a few minutes.

  • With an electric mixer, beat the eggs into the matzoh meal mixture, one at a time, beating well after each one. Drop the batter by heaping tablespoons onto the prepared cookie sheet, leaving about 2-in. (5 cm) between each one – they will expand as they bake. You should have about 10 blobs of batter. With a wet finger – yours or, preferably, your child's – make a hole in the middle of each blob. Place in the oven and bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until puffed and lightly browned.

  • Kid jobs: – Stir together the ingredients for the batter – Spoon the batter onto the baking sheet and make the holes.
