1/4 Photos of Czech-Style Farmer Cheese, Bacon & Noodle Bake
1 hr 25 mins

I'm on record as loving all things Czech (a legacy from my great-uncle Emil Placek). This recipe by Grete Willinsky from her "Kochbuch Der Buchergilde" was modified slightly by me, but will likely keep my record intact. This can be used as a side dish or paired w/a salad choice for a tasty & hearty meal. *ENJOY* ... Edited to Add: I agree w/the reviewer that the layering part of the prep is not necessary & have revised this recipe accordingly. :-)
