5ozbryndza OR sheep feta mashed with 1/4 cup heavy cream
5-7slicesof thick bacon
salt to taste
Finely grate the potato into a bowl, keeping the juice. Add flour, egg, and salt, and stir with a wooden spoon. Add water and stir until all the lumps are smoothed out. If the dough is too runny, add flour; if too thick, add water.
In a large pot, bring water to a boil and add salt. Transfer the potato dough into the boiling water by using a spaetzle maker, or push the dough through a large grater or colander. Gently boil all halušky for 7 or 8 minutes, until they all float to the top.
Meanwhile, fry the bacon until crisp and dice it into cubes.
Strain the halušky and mix with bryndza. Sprinkle the bacon on top and pour the rendered bacon fat all over. Salt to taste and serve immediately.
