I am making matzo balls from a mix, and I used egg replacer in place of the eggs. The mix was all crumbly though. I managed to form some balls, but I have a feeling they're going to fall apart in the soup. Can someone suggest other ways to replace the eggs for future reference?

Try using flax eggs. Add 1/4 tsp more baking powder to the recipe, and combine 1 tsp of flaxmeal to 2 tbsp of water (I believe that's the mix...I'm at work, so someone correct me if I'm wrong). Whisk well. Let it stick for a couple of minutes.

I find that works better then egg replacer a lot of times.

The only problem with the above is that it has a strong nutty/seedy flavor that will stand in something mildly flavored like matzo balls. You might want to use flax gloop made from whole flax seeds instead. It has the same binding properties, but is nearly flavorless.

You can find instructions for making that here:

You could also try applesauce. Really you could use any number of fruit purees, but applesauce has a pretty neutral flavor.

they sure do. i don't think it's from a mix, so it may not be much help this time around. but all the ppk receipes i've tried have been great.

you need a 'the' infront of your web address above.
