Things to know about Zsiros Kenyer Recipe

There’s nothing better than a tasty “Fatty Bread” while sitting next to the campfire with your friends and family. What is “Fatty Bread” or “Zsíros Kenyér”? It’s white bread with lard, red onion, and Hungarian sweet paprika powder on the top. It may not sound that delicious, but trust us, it is! When there’s an event, celebration, or festival in Hungary, you will surely find this meal there; These ingredients are all very popular in Hungarian and are used daily in every Hungarian dish. Traditionally every ingredient should be homemade; Hungarians used to bake their bread at home, harvest their red onions, make their paprika powder, and make lard from their pigs. It’s a tradition in almost every Hungarian family to gather together on the weekends, set a campfire in the backyard, sit in a circle, sharpen a stick from a tree and place the Hungarian bacon (mostly only fat) on the stick, warm it up on the fire then hold the bacon above one slice of bread, let the fat (lard) drip on it then cut some fresh red onion slices, place them on the bread and sprinkle the top with some sweet paprika powder (Hungarian).

Ingredients
 

  • 4 slices Plain White Bread
  • 2 head Onion
  • 250 gram (8.82 oz) Lard – Fatty Pork
  • 50 grams (1.76 oz) Smoked Sweet Paprika Powder Hungarian

Instructions
 

IF PREPARED INDOORS

  • Grab freshly baked white bread from your local bakery, and slice it up into 3 cm (1.1 inches) thick slices.
  • Open the pack of lard (it has to be room temperature) and spread some of it on each slice of bread.
  • Slice the onions into half then slice thinly and place them on the bread.
  • Sprinkle them with some Hungarian sweet paprika powder (optional).

IF PREPARED OUTDOORS (CAMPFIRE)

  • It's almost the same way as when it is prepared indoors, but it's more fun. Grab freshly baked white bread from your local bakery, and slice it into 3 cm (1.1 inches) thick slices.
  • Cut the Hungarian bacon and cut it into large pieces (cubes); this way, each person will have its bacon cube, get a sharp and long stick (preferred wooden, since the metal ones will warm up and you won't be able to hold it in the fire) and stick the bacon cube on your stick, place it in the fire.
  • Once the bacon has warmed up and started dripping, hold it above your slice of bread and drip it over the whole bread, then cut the red onions in half, slice them up into thin pieces, and place them on the bread.
  • Sprinkle them with some Hungarian sweet paprika powder (optional).
