Fried cheese – (Smažák) Smažený sýr

Every time when I visit the Czech Republic I spare some time and use this opportunity to visit my favorite restaurants to order one of my dream dishes… The large portion of the fried cheese with fries and tartar sauce. it´s delicious.  I think this meal is of the most dishes among Czech people. And most discussed because of its full of fat. Anyway, I guess if you don’t eat it every day it is fine then. So if you want to try it at home here is my recipe.

200g/0.5lb -ish   thick sliced cheese like Gouda, Edam or you can use a moldy cheese (President) cut in half

1/2 cup plain flour

1 cup bread crumbs

  1. Prepare the flour and bread crumbs. Now dip cheese into flour to make a layer on it.
  2. Then do the same tFried cheese inghing with eggs and finally with the bread crumbs. If the crust is damaged repeat these two steps again.
