My understanding is that there is a difference between Matzah balls and Knaidlach. The difference is that Knaidle are filled and Matzah balls are not. The fillings in our family have been either sweet (cherries from cherry preserves) or savory (onions browned in chicken fat). Maybe that varies from region to region.

Potato Latkis or pancakes
Grate several skinned potatoes, half an onion, an some flour to hold together, and add an egg. Mix together at salt and pepper to taste. In a fry pan, boil oil scoop a tablespoon into the hot grease and brown on one side then flip and eat
