Smažený sýr (Czech pronunciation: [ˈsmaʒɛniː ˈsiːr], Slovak: Vyprážaný syr [ˈvipraːʒaniː ˈsir]; literally "fried cheese") is a Czech and Slovak cheese-based dish, widely spread in both countries, thanks to the former state of unification (see Czechoslovakia).

Fried Gruyère/Swiss cheese, served with tartar sauce and side salad.

A slice of cheese (which is usually Edam, but can also be Hermelín (in the Czech Republic), Emmental (in Slovakia) or some other cheese) 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. The dish may also be prepared with a thin slice of ham sandwiched between two slices of cheese.
