Recipe by ChefD

This recipe is a traditional slovak dish used on meatless days. Growing up we had this on Fridays in Lent. The secret is to brown the butter (this is the difficult step because the butter can go from light to dark brown very quickly. You cannot substitute Margarine or light in this recipe.
