Freeze Matzo Balls?

I made some matzo balls stuffed with a cooked ground chicken mixture. We didn't eat all of them and I'm wondering if they can be frozed for future use. Any help will be appreciated.

  1. Freeze them like meatballs - arrange separately on cookie sheet. Freeze the sheet; once frozen pop the balls into a ziploc or zip top plastic bag and stick in the freezer.

      I have a really stupid question - when you put the matzo balls on the cookie sheet, do you freeze them uncovered or do you use wax paper or something like that over them?

    2. You can defintiely freeze them. My mother in law freezes them using the cookie sheet method. You can freeze the leftover soup separately

      1. They freeze very well. To reheat them, drop them into hot soup while still frozen and cook on simmer for 20-30 min.

        1. Those sound delicious, will you post the recipe? I'd love to try them - thanks

          1. Hi Jacqulyncoffey; The recipe is from an ancient Bon Appetit magazine page that I ripped from the issue so I can't tell you the month or year to look for. Perhaps ti will be in their " " collection. The chowhounds team may remove my recipe from this board eventho' I did make many adaptations to the original recipe. Look in epicurious for it under the title "Stuffed Matzo Ball Soup". I'll send you more if you can't find it.
