Zaatar Passover Mini Rolls

Passover is just around the corner, and there is not a complete holiday without passover rolls. My Mom used to make them every holiday and hers where the traditional ones, oval shape and hollow inside. I remember the smell in the house was so incredible, sign of spring, happiness and family special time together. Passover is probably my favorite holiday, not only because its my birthday but also because of the traditional food that I grew up on. There is so much excitement before the holiday, people buy gifts to each other and the festivity is in the air.

I recreated passover rolls, my style, bite size, flavorful, crunchy in the outside and soft in the inside. Good! And the best part is that it takes 10 minutes to prepare...

Give it a try and see for yourself that you don't need eggs to make delicious passover rolls.
