1. Mix the eggs and the crushed matzah in a bowl. Spread a thin layer of the mixture on a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil. Place in a preheated, 350-degree oven for about 15 minutes or until the farfel is dry.

2. In the meantime, heat the margarine in a small saute pan. Add the onions and saute until limp. Then add the mushrooms and continue cooking until soft.

3. Add the matzah. 1 cup of the chicken broth, a pinch of marjoram, and black pepper to taste. Stirring constantly, continue to add the broth until most of the liquid is absorbed into the matzah. Reduce the heat to low, letting it sit until all the liquid is absorbed.
