Microwaved Easter Cheese (a.k.a Hrudka, Sirek)

If you’d rather spend your time decorating eggs than stirring a pot, test your spirit of adventure on this recipe for microwaved hrudka.   Let me know if it works….

Thank you Andrea Zober for sharing your recipe.

12 Eggs, slightly beaten
1 Qt. of milk 

1/2 Tsp. vanilla 
Sugar to taste (between 1-5 Tbsp.) 

Pinch of salt -You can adjust seasonings as you are used to making.
Combine the above ingredients
Take 3 Qt Microwave safe container. (Andrea uses the large container from the Tupperware Stack Cooker)  Spray with non stick spray. 
Put the egg mixture in the container. Cover.
Microwave for 3 minutes on  High
(After 3 minutes you can add 1/4 cup of white raisins)
Microwave for 4 minutes on High
NOTE:  a 1250 watt microwave is the same as a 650 degree oven.  Cooking times vary by wattage.
Take out check to see if it is puffed and almost dry.  While you have a little of moisture left, take out and place in cheesecloth.  Squeeze out as much liquid as you can,  Will be very HOT.  Hang to drip and dry for several hours.  This will form the round ball.   Place in warm oven to brown off.
