Passover Rolls

Author Notes:

With Passover coming up, I'm eagerly looking forward to one of my favorite carb-based foods of the year: the unlikely Passover rolls. These eggy rolls are great for snacking or as buns for a sandwich. (Possibly originally from the American Jewish cookbook? At this point, it's family recipe)

In This Recipe


  1. Preheat oven to 400℉.
  2. Bring water and oil to a boil. Add matzo meal and salt, stirring constantly until dough no longer sticks to the pan, about 1 minute.
  3. Remove from heat. Add eggs one at a time, beating each in thoroughly. Drop by tablespoon onto a greased cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with a bit of matzo meal. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, then reduce heat to 300 degrees and bake for approximately 25 more minutes.
