The Recipes of Slovakia Remembered
The Great Slovak Cheese War of 1996

Egg Cheese

All of these recipes were given to me by my Grandmother Julianna Lazorik Barnyik Ambrisko, who was born in Kosicka Bela, Slovakia on June 15, 1882. I have had them since I was twelve, when I watched her make all this on holidays.... now I do...

Serrik or Egg Cheese. They call the Easter Cheese Hurda too. My Grammy called it Serrik.

This makes 2 balls of cheese (the size of a grapefruit)

1 dozen eggs
1 qt & 1/2 of milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 tblsp sugar
a pinch of salt

Beat together well

Cook slowly over LOW heat stirring constantly

When it looks like yellow cottage cheese & liquid separates, pour into 2 CLEAN NEW knee High (stockings)

tie it so it looks like a BALL

hang it from the kitchen cabinet & let it drip, about 2 hrs.

Refrigerate over night

take the stocking off & slice.

Don't laugh at the stocking thing it works better than cheese cloth no strings!! If you come to my house at Easter & Christmas time I have balls hanging from the cabinets!!
