This is a dish that many tourists who come to the Czech Republic have never seen in their lives and can’t keep up with. But once they try it, they are absolutely hooked. In fact, the dish is so popular among tourists and locals alike that restaurants across the Czech Republic can afford to charge ridiculous amounts for this simple, yet addictive deep-fried delight.
And what exactly are we talking about here? Nothing more than a slice of cheese, preferably a quality cheese (but unfortunately that’s not always the case in restaurants and food stalls), thrown into a deep fryer with a good portion of chips. Voila!
That’s it, served with tartar sauce or ketchup, whichever you prefer. And for busy people who are always on the go, many food stalls in the Czech Republic will also throw the fried cheese into a sandwich for you, so you don’t miss anything even on the busiest days.
- Sprinkle the cheese with salt if desired.
- Dip the slices in flour, then in beaten egg and finally in breadcrumbs, making sure the cheese slices are completely covered.
- Fry quickly in hot oil or shortening until golden brown. Serve immediately.
