Seder Meal Unleavened Bread

I dabbled on thefreshloaf about a year ago, but now I am finding it to be my go-to source for a lot of stuff . . . so we are doing a Seder meal, and will use traditional matzah for the seder plate and the "ceremony"  But I am wondering what I can do (and I am NOT looking for authentic here :-)) for the festive meal in terms of an unleavened bread?  I know I can just have matzah crackers if need be, but I would really like to have a softer bread for the meal but still keeping with the tradtion of having it unleavened.  Thanks for your help.

I think there's a couple of recipes here, and I've seen others on other sites.

You could try a Passover Bagel. It is basically a type of popover 


  • 2 tb Sugar
  • 2 c Matzo meal (finely ground matzoh crackers)
  • 1 1/2 c Water
  • Salt
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1/2 c Oil
  •  Boil water & oil together & pour hot mixture into matzo meal. Add sugar & salt & let this stand until cool.
  •  Beat the eggs & pour over mixture.
  •  Mix well & let this stand until hardened. Form into  round balls  and make a hole in the centre with your finger.  Bake on greased cookie sheet in a preheated oven at  350 F until lightly brown.
