I love this easter cheese! I used to make this with my Baba for many years!! This recipe is exactly the same with one exception my Baba always put a dash of yellow food coloring in it to give it a nice color!!
jbchef - this recipe has nothing to do with scrambled eggs! It is a cheese since it is made by curdling milk. It is a fresh cheese made for Easter with eggs. This is the recipe my grandmother, mother and I have made for over 100 years. I have also added a pinch of fresh nutmeg for a little kick. I also server it with beets horseradish and cold sliced keilbasa for Easter breakfast.
Thank you. I made this when I was growing up in a Byzantine Catholic church. It is long since gone. I forgot the recipe. The only thing different is that we would take cloves and decorate the cheese with a cross.
Just finished making my Easter cheese. A recipe that has been handed down for generations from my Slovak ancestors. My only variation is to add some water , and when that surfaces you know you are done. The eggs are to indicate a new beginning .
This is exactly as my Grandmother and Great Grandmother made it. it will be the first Easter without her and I am making it alone. It will be sad but I know she will be with me in spirit while I make it. Love and miss you Gram.
I do pretty much the same thing, but add vanilla and a bit of sugar. Also, make sure not to use too much milk with the SIZE of the eggs you get. If eggs are small, use less milk or it will be watery. Been making this for about 10 years. Family loves it and it's a great tradition from my Slovak grandparents.
