Instant Loksa

One of the traditional dishes of Christmas is Loksa, a mixture of sweetened poppy seed and bread served at the Holy Supper of Christmas Eve. We have been using this "instant" version of the recipe for the past 25 years.

One Loaf of Sliced Bread

One can Solo Poppy Seed Filling


Tear about 2/3 of a loaf of bread into about 1 1/2 inch squares

Add about 1/2 of the Solo poppy seed filling

Mix, adding water to moisten the mixture as needed

Add either bread, poppy seed filling, or water until the mixture has the correct texture (not dry and not runny)

Refrigerate for a couple of hours before eating, and it tastes even better the second day.

There is also a rather unusual tradition involving the use of Loksa, Bobalky, or Kutia on Christmas Eve.

We also have a more traditional recipe for Loksa or Bobalky available.
