Being from the poorer side of town, I grew up on economical dishes passed down from my Baba from Czechoslovakia. This is still a favorite of my German husband and Czech family.

How to Make Czech Šunkafleky (Ham & Noodles)

Step-by-Step

  1. After baking a ham I grind the leftovers and freeze in 1 pound packs. Defrost 1 pound in microwave for this and keep warm. Do not heat in pot or it will dry out.
  2. Cook the noodles in a dutch oven per package directions for al dente and drain in colandar. Put noodles back in pot.
  3. Cut the butter up on top of the noodles and toss until melted and mixed well without breaking up the noodles.
  4. Add the heated ground ham to the noodles, sprinkling onion powder and ground black pepper to taste on top and toss.
  5. Serve in bowls..depending on the size of the bowl, you can feed a nice size family with this or have it for more than one meal.
