But darált tepertö, or ground fried bacon ($5.99 per pound), has a nearly granular texture that doesn't spread as easily. It's traditionally prepared during the winter holiday season, said the owner of the European Meat Market of Glen Rock, New Jersey, who manned a table at the festival, but he takes special orders, too.
Also shown below: korozottes kenyér ($1), bread slathered in the spiced cheese spread called liptauer, with pickles and red pepper paste; fasírtos kenyér ($2), literally, meat loaf on bread, though this egg-studded version had a texture closer to pâté; and two versions of pogácsa, biscuits made with sajtos (cheese; four for $1) or stippled with tepertōs (pork crackling; three for $1). The last, also shown in biteaway view, might have been a better delivery device for the ground fried bacon than a slice of white bread (shown at bottom), but I scarfed those biscuits long before I made it home.
