need recipe for egg free matzo balls

I need a recipe for egg free matzo balls. They do not need to be vegan/or veg, I just need to replace the function of the egg. I've tried using egg replacer, which was not a hit and not delicious. I want to boil them.

Anything tried and true?

Great question -- this tutorial looks helpful but uses egg replacer, so probably not what you're looking for: http://bonzaiaphrodite...

Since you don't need it to be vegetarian, I'd be inclined to up the schmaltz factor -- but I've never tried this, so I don't know if schmaltz alone would hold them together.

Consider yogurt to replace the egg.

Google turned up the post below, which also links to an article where mashed potatoes are used in pace of egg.

I've successfully used soft tofu, same liquid volume as eggs in original recipe, whipped, as a replacement in cakes and other baking. They may work in the matzo balls. If you can use legumes, do a test batch with soft tofu mixed with the other ingredients and boiled as usual.
