  • 1/3 cup Olive Oil
  • 1/2 cup Cold water or Cold Seltzer
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Mix ingredients in order listed until well blended.
Cover bowl, and refrigerate for an hour.
Moisten hands and form the mixture into balls. I make them small, but size is up to you.
Add balls to a pot of salted boiling water, and then simmer, covered, for 30 minutes to an hour.
(Alternatively you can boil them up in your chicken soup!)
