Bryndzové Halušky (English: potato dumplings with bryndza sheep cheese and bacon[1]) is one of the national dishes in Slovakia.[2][3] This hearty meal consists of halušky[1] (boiled lumps of potato dough similar in appearance to gnocchi[1][2][3]) and bryndza[1] (a soft sheep cheese[4]), optionally sprinkled with cooked bits of smoked pork fat/bacon.[1][2][3]

Žinčica is traditionally drunk with this meal.[2] There is an annual Bryndzové Halušky festival in Turecká that features an eating contest.[5][6]

The dish is also made in northern Hungary, where it is known as sztrapacska.
