Smazeny syr.jpg

Smažený sýr (Slovak "Vyprážaný syr", literally "fried cheese") is maybe the less noble, but the most contemporary of Czech and Slovak national dishes. A slice of cheese, usually Edam (Czech: Eidam) about 1.5 cm in thickness, is breaded with flour, egg and breadcrumbs and fried either in a pan or in a deep fryer. It is often served with a side salad or red cabbage, potatoes (fries or boiled potatoes), and typically with tartar sauce (or mayonnaise).

In Czech fast food outlets it can be also prepared in the form of a sandwich, i.e. between two slices of bread, usually something similar to a hamburger bun. The usual complement is tartar sauce (Czech: tatarská omáčka).
