  • Lithuanian Food

    I lost my recipe box during a move and my son would love to have a Lithuanian dish that my parents use to make. It was called (Spelling ?) Klaskas or Virtini. I can remember the taste and smell the aroma of this dish cooking in the oven. Can anyone help?

    Do you remember any of the ingredients at all?

      Hope this helps.

      Koldūnai, Virtiniai, Auselės - these are various kinds of dumplings, filled with minced meat, sausage, cottage cheese, or mushrooms, usually garnished with crumbled fried bacon. They are similar to Polish pierogi or kołduny, but are usually smaller.

      Lithuanian dumplings are called Koldūnai and Virtiniai. There are also popular potato dumplings called Cepelinai, or Didžkukuliai.

        TO PREPARE THE DOUGH:

        Mix the ingredients for the filling together well.

        TO FILL AND BAKE THE BUNS:
        Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

        My father-in-law (from Lithuania) made pierogies, but they called them 'Vettatini'. They are like a pierogie, but they are filled with ground beef and onions and then after boiling, they are fried in a skillet with butter and more chopped onions.

        NOODLE DOUGH:
        3 1/2 cups of flour
        1 egg
        1 cup of water
        a pinch of salt

        Mix until ball is formed, roll and cut in pierogie sized circles.

        FILLING:
        ground Beef
        quartered slices of onions

        Boil until they float and then for about 3 more minutes.

        Fry in butter and onions.

        SURE TO PLEASE!!!

          Well, I couldn't find a recipe in time to make these. So I used meat filled raviollis and made a thin sauce out of some fried bacon and onions and chicken broth. Didn't turn out to bad. Thanks for the suggestions and the recipe.
