Do you have anything like strufoli? Fried dough balls (not zepolis) covered in honey. That is one of my favorite things about Christmas time. 

Something like this?

I wonder if they are closely related to the meat pie my Italian (off the boat) great grandmother would make around Easter. Sort of like a quiche, but very different from anything I’ve had since. I’m gonna have to find a legit recipe for byrek and give it a shot. 

 

My mom called that Easter Pie. Haven't had it since she passed in 2013. :(

Polish made pierogies. Like ravioli sort of. Potato and cheese stuffing. No reason you couldn't put some ground meat in them. Fried in butter with onions.

Strufolli would be the size of something like the cereal kix.  Best memories as a kid would be helping my father fry them and then eating them still warm before he douced them with honey.  Good chit.  Those look delicious as well.

I bet none of you guys ever had Szalonna?

It's a Hungarian thing - basically bacon fat dripped on rye bread with veggies on it.

It was great when I was a kid in the summertime.

The great depression was a tough time for you I'm sure.

No you would put it on a stick and cook it over the charcoal and when it started dripping bacon fat, you would blot it on the bread until its was all soaked with fat and then put tomatoes and cukes and onions, peppers - and eat it.

It was all healthy cuz of the veggies, I'm sure.

It was a big deal with the hunky's up the street.
