This recipe for Slovak sweet egg cheese is typically served at Easter time and goes by various names including hrudka, cirak, sirok, sirecz and on and on. Typically, hrudka is made without sugar, but some cooks prefer it sweet. Essentially, it's a ball of eggs and milk that have been cooked until the proteins separate into curds and the liquid separates into whey.
This is a recipe passed down from my sister's mother-in-law.
