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. It's an interesting concoction that's made the same way fresh cheese is. It's variously called hrudka, sirok, Typically, hrudka is made without sugar, but some cooks prefer it sweet. Another way I like to serve it is sliced, dredged in flour and sautéed in butter. If the hrudka is sweet, you can sprinkle it with granulated or confectioners' sugar or even serve it with syrup as it tastes a lot like French toast without the bread!
This is a recipe passed down from my sister's mother-in-law.
