We served these rolls to my 6th graders at a sedar meal we had when we were studying passover. They loved these rolls and didn't leave any leftovers.-30 Mar 2002

These were pretty good. I thought they were rather difficult to work with, as the dough is very sticky. They had more like a cream puff shell consistency, but were still nice.-19 Apr 2004

Just like I remember my grandmother's! Remember, these are gebrokts, so if you observe that restriction, you can't eat these until the last day of the holiday! You can cut the oil down to 1/4 cup; I usually use melted schmaltz because it tastes so good, and it's a once-a-year indulgence.-09 Apr 2009

Matzah meal, which is just the bread of affliction finely ground, has seldom been put to better use than in this recipe created by California cooking instructor Linda Capeloto Sendowski. Easy to make, her popover rolls are the answer to the sandwich cravings that can appear mid-Passover week. They work wonderfully well for sopping up brisket gravy—crisp on the outside, with an airy interior that may remind you of gougères (without the cheese). Sprinkle them with “everything spice” or za’atar before you pop them in the oven, and the ensuing aroma will have folks running to the kitchen.

Since Linda shared her recipe with Washington Post readers in 2012, the rolls have been a favorite on my seder table and throughout the holiday week. They can be stored at room temperature for a few days, during which they will become increasingly chewy. They freeze well. Photo by Deb Lindsey.

10 Delicious Sephardic Passover Recipe Ideas

Wondering what to make for Passover? I did some of the work for you! Sephardic Passover rules and traditions vary quite a bit from Ashkenazi and so don&rsquot be surprised if you see items here that you may not expect. Of course I&rsquove included a few Moroccan passover recipes as the ones I am most familiar with.

For example, rice and legumes like lentils and chickpeas aren&rsquot off-limits so you&rsquoll often find them in traditional Sephardic Passover dishes. This is a fascinating read about the variety of differences across Sephardic traditions.

Try a few of these recipes and then let me know what you think. I have enjoyed making, and trying every one of them.

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. In a 2 quart pot, bring water, oil and salt to a boil.
  3. Remove from heat and add matzo meal and stir until it forms a ball.
  4. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until each egg is incorporated before adding another.
  5. Drop the batter in an oval shape on greased cookie sheet for sandwich style rolls (makes 10 rolls) or fill a greased muffin tin (makes 12 muffins).
  6. Bake for 30 minutes.

I posted this recipe years ago on and everyone who rated it, except for one person, gave it a 4 or 5 star rating. I do have some relatives who don’t like the rolls…so I can’t promise everyone will like them. But I’ve found that for every person who doesn’t like them, a bunch more do.

Strawberry Mousse – This recipe is from Betsy Wolf who used to live in our community and is a marvelous cook. She and her husband Sheldon currently live in Philadelphia.

  • 1 pint fresh strawberries, diced and sprinkled with sugar
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 TBSP lemon juice
  • 3 egg whites
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 TBSP sweet red Passover wine

Beat egg whites and gradually add sugar until combined. Add strawberries, lemon juice and salt and continue beating. Add wine and beat at low, then medium speed for a total of 15 minutes. Spoon into a large bowl and freeze. May be garnished with strawberries, shaved chocolate or whipped cream.


• 1 cup chopped apples
• 1/4 cup chopped walnuts or almonds
• 1 tsp sugar or honey
• 2 tbsp red wine
• grated rind of half a lemon (optional)
• 1 tsp cinnamon


Mix all ingredients together well. Add enough wine to bind together. Let set in the refrigerator.

The fruit and nuts found in charoset recipes refer to two verses found in the Song of Songs linked with the spring season. “Under the apples tree I awakened thee” (8:5) and “I went down into the garden of nuts”(6”11). The red wine recalls the Red Sea, which the Lord parted for the Jews. Most American Jews are familiar with the mixture of apples, almonds, cinnamon, wine, and ginger. This is by no means the only combination. Pine nuts, peanuts, even chestnuts can be mixed with apricots, coconuts, raisins, dates, figs and even bananas.
