Bryndzové halušky (Slovak: [ˈbrindzɔʋeː ˈɦaluʂki]) is one of the national dishes in Slovakia.[1][2] This meal consists of halušky[3] (boiled lumps of potato dough similar in appearance to gnocchi)[3][1][2] and bryndza[3] (a soft sheep cheese),[4] optionally sprinkled with cooked bits of smoked pork fat or bacon, and chives or spring onions.[3][1][2]

Žinčica is traditionally drunk with this meal.[1] There is an annual Bryndzové Halušky festival in Turecká that features an eating contest.[5][6]
