Smažený sýr (Czech pronunciation: [ˈsmaʒɛniː ˈsiːr], Slovak: Vyprážaný syr) (literally "fried cheese") is a Czech cheese-based dish, also spread in Slovakia, thanks to the former state of unification of these countries (see Czechoslovakia).
A slice of cheese, usually Hermelín or Edam (Czech: Eidam) and about 1.5 cm in thickness, is breaded with flour, egg and bread crumbs and fried either in a pan or in a deep fryer. It is often served with a side salad, potatoes (fries or boiled potatoes), and typically with tartar sauce (or mayonnaise). In Czech fast food outlets it can be also prepared in the form of a sandwich, i.e. between two slices of bread, usually something similar to a hamburger bun. The usual complement is tartar sauce (Czech: tatarská omáčka).
