“This is a recipe for Passover that is flavorful and delicious.” - by Dan
Original recipe yields 30 fritters
- Cut the white part of the leek stalks into 4 to 5 pieces each and cook uncovered in water until tender; drain. Grind, preferable in a meat grinder.
- In a large bowl, mix ground leeks with lamb and add eggs; mix well. Add matzo meal until mixture is stable but not too hard. If you added too much matzo meal, add another egg. Add salt, pepper and garlic.
- Form small patties and arrange on a tray to fry; optimal size of patties is bite size.
- In a large skillet, heat oil and pan fry until golden; serve hot or at room temperature.

"After frying a test batch and adjusting seasonings, I used: 3 cloves minced garlic, 2 teaspoons (at least) salt, 1/2 teaspoon each black and white pepper, 1/4 teaspoon cayenne, 1 tablespoon garlic sal..." See moret. With all those additions, they were okay but not great. Found it hard to fry them until cooked through without burning them (even though they were small), and ended up finishing them in the oven. Next time I might sautee the leeks with an onion for added flavor instead of boiling them."
