  1. I just made this and am eating it now….ummmm!!! Very good and very easy. I had some Christmas ham left over in the freezer, wondering what to do with it. Perfect idea. I haven’t had this for many years. Thanks again for a great recipe 😛

    1. Perfect! I am glad you enjoyed it. 🙂 I actually used leftover ham from Christmas as well. 😀

  2. Hello there,
    Assuming you prefer using English in here I’m writing my comment in this language although I’m of Czech origin. Excuse me, just a little friendly reminader and I really hope you wouldn’t mind – you can’t call pasta meal of this type ”casserole”. The right name for this pasta dish would be rather ”pasta bake”. Casserole is a kind of meal which is made more like a sort of a ragu dish.
    I dare to say I know very well what I’m talking about. I’ve been living in English speaking country for more than 10 years and moreover, I’m experienced professional chef (except of some others, I worked for companies like Marriott and Crowne Plaza in UK).

    1. Hello fellow Czech 🙂 Yes you are absolutely right. In the UK such dishes are called “bakes” and I appreciate you pointing that out. Since I’m converting my recipes into US measurements that’s why I went with a term that is more commonly known here in the US. It would be so much easier if the whole world used the same naming and measurements. 🙂

    2. In the USA we call this kind of baked dish a casserole.

      Pozdravy…

  3. I have looked for this recipe for years!!! My husbands family is czech and they have fixed it for years! They added other spices example mace, ginger, lemon. Then we eat it with dill pickles. Oh My Heavens is it good!

    1. 🙂 Fast and yummy!

  4. Šunkofleky after so many years. Life couldn’t get any better. Thanks Krystýna. They were delicious.

    1. 🙂 Thank you for your comment. It makes me happy to hear that. I am glad you enjoyed them. 🙂

  5. Our grandma called it “Shooky-flaky,” and we always made it with leftover ham, especially after Easter.

    1. Yes, we do call them sunkofleky as well specially in Moravaia 🙂 Just little differently pronounced than your grandma’s.

  6. Helo Krystyna.
    I live in New York but i was born in Prague. I make šunka fleky i use smoke pork tenderloin which i first cook as a soup and then use the leftover for the šunka fleky.
    As a kid i would get bramboraky na Masarykovym nádraží. I would like to again taste that garlicky potato pancakes.
    I would appreciate if you could post a recipe.
    Děkuju mnohokrát.

    1. Hello Charles, I do have a recipe http://www.czechcookbook.com/potato-latkes-bramborak/

  7. I am going to make this next. My Dad (grandparents from Prague/Pilsen) called it “fleechkee”. Ate it often while growing up. Used egg noodles. Loved it for breakfast.

    1. Yes, that is same pronunciation for Flicky. 🙂 We also called it that way. I hope you will enjoy it. 🙂

    2. Read your post regarding “Fleechkee”. I love it too, but haven’t made it for years. Could you please send me your recipe. I remember egg noodles, butter, milk. and ham. Was there any eggs in it? I can’t remember. I think I have everything to go into it but I don’t remember how much of everything. Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks

      1. This recipe is Flicky Recipe you are taking about Nance.

  8. So happy to find your blog and this recipe! I grew up with delicious Czech food prepared by my Babi (grandma) and mom. If we had smoked butt & bread dumplings for Sunday dinner, the left over meat would be used for flicky. We would put it through a meat grinder. Now I use a ham steak, but still grind it up. I use wide egg noodles & add a some grated swiss or cheddar to “dress” it up. It is a great economical meal.

    1. Yes, very true. 🙂

  9. Wow! My grandfather’s family was Czech and we made a version of this that was only ham and onion sautéed and egg noodles added to the skillet and served once browned. I am curious to try this recipe.

    1. I hope it will bring wonderful memories and you will enjoy this recipe. 🙂

  10. Thank you for putting the recipe for Flickey. I am going to make it tomorrow. I will think of you when ai am eating dinner.

    1. I hope you enjoyed them. 🙂

  11. Ahoj, Kristýno! Greek and Middle Eastern stores will also have the same fleky used in Central Europe. We call them “hilopites’ (if you say “chylopítes” as if you were pronouncing Czech, you will pronounce it perfectly). So many of your readers may be able to find this pasta locally.

  12. Hi Krystina, My Grandmother and Mother would make this all of the time. I always make it when I have leftover ham. It’s a great way to use up the ends and small pieces between the bone. The only difference in the recipe is that I use the wide egg noodles and we just make it in a pan and stir it to break up the egg mixture. I think my family just couldn’t wait to eat it so my Grandmother would make it in a pan! It was and still is one of my favorite things to eat.
    Love your recipes. Keep cooking!
    Gale

    1. Hi Gale, that sounds wonderful! Yes great idea to use those meat pieces. 🙂 Wide egg noodles are actually more traditional but for me harder to find. I am happy to hear you are enjoying my recipes. 🙂
