Bryndzové Halušky  or (English: small potato dumplings (gnocci) with bryndza sheep cheese and bacon and sour cream) is one of the national dishes in Slovakia. Strapačky is a Slovak dish too, similar to Bryndzové Halušky, but Strapačky are served with stewed sour cabbage (stewed sauerkraut) instead of bryndza. Both of these dishes are well-known and popular in Hungary, too, but we call them “sztrapacska”. In Slovakia they are often served as side-dish with meats, instead of rice or potatos.
