Hungarian Cheese Sticks (Sajtos Rud) – this recipe came from my Aunt Agi in Budapest. I have done my best to convert to imperial measures, but to be sure, you should use the metric. Added note, I have successfully made these several times using imperial measures…so go for it!


Hungarian Cheese Sticks (Sajos Rud)

Hungarian Cheese Sticks (Sajos Rud)

  • 300g (about 2 cups) all purpose flour
  • 150g (1/2 cup) margarine/sweet butter
  • 1 tbsp fast rising yeast (bread machine yeast works)
  • Sour cream as necessary for kneeding (I generally need about 2 tbsp)
  • 100g (1 cup) shredded cheese (sharp cheddar works well, freshly grated Parmesan is best)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 20g (1/2 cup) shredded cheese
  • 1 egg yolk
  1. Dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup warm water + 1 tsp sugar
  2. In a pastry blender or food processor with plastic blades blend flour, margarine, yeast, cheese and salt and pepper until a smooth ball forms, adding sour cream as necessary.
  3. Let rest in a warm dark place for 1 hour.
  4. Preheat oven to 375F
  5. On a piece of parchment paper, roll out dough to about 1/2 cm (~1/4 inch) thickness.
  6. Cut into 7-10 cm (3-4″) x 2 cm (1/2 inch) sticks.
  7. Lightly beat the egg yolk and brush tops of sticks.
  8. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  9. Let rest 10 minutes.
  10. Slide cheese sticks on parchment paper onto a cookie sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until cheese is golden brown.
  11. Re-cut sticks, if necessary, while still warm. Allow to cool.
  12. Enjoy!
