Bryndzové Halušky (English: potato dumplings with sheep cheese[1]) is one of the national dishes in Slovakia.[2][3] This hearty meal consists of halušky[4] (boiled lumps of potato dough similar in appearance to gnocchi[4][2][3]) and bryndza[4] (a soft sheep cheese[5]), optionally sprinkled with cooked bits of smoked pork fat/bacon.[4][2][3]

Žinčica is traditionally drunk with this meal.[2] There is an annual Bryndzové Halušky festival in Turecká that features an eating contest.[6][7]
