Fried Cheese - „Smažený sýr“

A typical food served in Czech restaurants. In the past, this meal was the only option vegetarians had in restaurants. You can use either Edam (medium soft cheese), camembert, Gouda or Emmental cheese. Fried cheese is usually served with potatoes or french fries with tartar sauce, mayonnaise or ketchup.

Smažený sýr



  • 4 slices of cheese about 1,5 cm thick (about ½  of an inch)
  • Eggs
  • Flour
  • Breadcrumbs
  • Oil
  • Salt

Take 3 bowls: put flour in the first, whisked eggs in the second and breadcrumbs in the third. Cover cheese in flour, then eggs and finally breadcrumbs. Bread each slice at least twice so that the melted cheese would not spill during frying. Fry in a pan or deep fryer. Tip: In deep fryer – when cheese starts to swim up, it’s done
