Frugal Gefilte Fish

Making your own gefilte fish can be the most economical if you get a good price for fish. If that's not possible, it's pretty easy to double the volume of frozen gefilte fish. First, defrost one loaf of gefilte fish. Then finely mince two carrots, two stalks of celery, and an onion and saute it all in oil. Let cool, then mix in 2 eggs and enough matzo meal to bind it together. Combine it all with the loaf of defrosted gefilte fish. Grease a couple of loaf pans and pour the batter in. Bake at 350 for about an hour. Great way to stretch something that usually costs about $12/lb. Stretching it like this should make it cost more like $7/lb, and even less if you can get the gefilte fish at a lower cost or make your own.

I also add canned salmon or tuna along with veggies and matzo meal. Can also be breaded and fried. Yum!
