Cirak (Slovak Easter Cheese) Egg Roll

READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by Jane from Ohio

We always made this from the time I was little. I now carry on the tradition. My mother called seedik. I'm spelling it like she pronounced it. It really does taste like cheese. It is always served on Easter with Ham.

So glad to find this. My Slovak Nana and my mother always made this for Easter, but I never learned while they were still with us. This is exactly the way they made it, with salt and cracked pepper and not sugar as I see some recipes call for. Going to make it right now.
