Matzoh Onion Stuffing Recipe


Matzoh makes a good substitute for bread in stuffing. This recipe is easily multiplied and perfect for Hanukkah or any meal. Feel free to use it as a stuffing for a whole chicken or Cornish game hens. If you really want to jazz it up, add 1/2 cup of dried cranberries.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes


  • 2 matzohs
  • 1/2 cup hot chicken broth
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 large sweet onion, diced
  • 2 ribs of celery, diced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
