Yes, it takes quite a bit of imagination to think of these as anything approaching a bagel, but as Passover drags along, you'll want something "bread-like" if only very vaguely.
From A Taste of Tradition
1 cup water
1/2 cup oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups matzo meal
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease a large baking sheet and set aside.
In a saucepan, bring the water, salt and oil to a boil. remove from heat and quickly beat in the matzo meal with a wooden spoon. Return to medium heat and cook, stirring well for three minutes. remove from heat and cool ten minutes.
With the wooden spoon again, beat in the eggs, one at a time mixing thoroughly between each. When eggs have all been absorbed, divide the dough in six or eight portions and roll into balls between your hands. Poke a hole in each with your thumb and place on sheet. Bake for 40 minutes or until dark golden brown on top. Cool on racks.
