June Meyer's Authentic Hungarian
Hot Paprika Tomato, Onion and Pepper Condiment
Lecso can be any thing you want it to be. It is very versatile. A cooked mixture of onions, yellow banana peppers, and tomatoes and paprika. Add some sliced Hungarian Sausage and it can be served as an appetizer or stew. Serve it over dumplings or rice as a main course. Spoon it over scrambled eggs for breakfast. Use it as a sauce for sausage or corn meal mush. However you use it you will find it to be quite compatible with a lot of dishes. It is an ancient dish originating in Serbia.
