Ingredients

  • 1 lb (450 g) pasta fleky widenoodles cut in squares, or simply wide noodles

Instructions

  • Grease the baking dish thoroughly with butter. I used a 9x12 inches cast iron casserole dish.
  • Heat the oven to 350 °F (180 °C) without hot air circulation.
  • Cook the pasta in salt water al dente, following the manufacture’s instructions.
  • Meanwhile, dice the bacon into pieces about ½ inch in size and fry them in a pan with butter.
  • Crack the eggs into a separate bowl, beat them gently with a fork, and flavor them with salt.
  • Strain the pasta, put it into a larger bowl, and mix in butter, until it dissolves.
  • Mix the still-hot pasta with fried bacon, flavor with salt and pepper, add eggs.
  • Layer the pasta blend into the greased dish and bake for 30 minutes until the surface turns to gold.
  • Let šunkofleky a bit cool down, cut in squares, and put it on the plate. Garnish with green parsley.
  • Serve with pickles.

Notes

You can fry the rest of šunkofleky in a pan with butter later, it tastes great in both variants!
