David’s Fried Gefilte Sticks

Fried Gefilte Sticks

  • Two pieces matzo
  • 6 oz. gefilte 
  • one egg, beaten 
  • Negev Nectars cherry tomato spread
  • Negev Nectars red label olive oil 

Use a mortar and pestle to crush matzo into a coarse grind (if you don't have a mortar and pestle you can put matzo into a plastic bag and break it up in there). Take out half the matzo and place in a bowl. Grind the second half very to a very fine grind (or use matzoh meal), so that it is flour like and place in a bowl. Cut the gefilte into stick shapes (about 1 1/2 inches long by 1/2 inch thick). Dip gefilte into finely ground matzo. Next dip into the beaten egg. Dip the gefilte into the coarsely ground matzo. Put the gefilte into hot oil in a fry pan. Once the side has browned turn, repeat on all sides. Serve with Negev Nectars cherry tomato spread for dipping.
