Mlinci is a side dish that is mainly spread around Zagreb. Zebrano Original Zagorje Mlinci is made according to traditional recipes. The production is no secret, the ingredients are very simple - flour, salt and water. That's how Mlinci was made from generation to generation. We produce the Mlinci, with no artificial additives or additives.
Mlinci is produced in the traditional way - baked on the board. As it was done in the old Zagorje Hiza, the furnaces that warmed and the family prepares it on its boards. Whoever has had the opportunity to experience how the mlincis are baked on board, will remember how hot, soft and delicious they are.
The dough is rolled out very thinly and then baked from both sides in the oven on a wooden board. Anyone who has had the opportunity to experience how the Mlinci is baked will remember how hot, soft and delicious they are.
Zebrano Zagorje mlinci is produced manually, only for those acts that is impossible to do manually (eg. blending large amounts of dough), we use machines. Our staff stretch the dough by hand, cut it and bake on the boards. We are confident that our mlinci are special because of this human touch have something that makes them different, better, more palatable. A special effort we have invested in the appearance, the quality and the functionality of the packaging of our Zebrano Zagorje mlinci.
For the preparation of the hard plates are broken into pieces, in boiling water for a short time - about a minute - brewed and then in gravy (typically from the turkey purica sa mlincima) so long pulled until they have absorbed the gravy and so wholehave become soft.
The story of Mlinici in the Kajkavian dialect, which is located on the packaging, talks about how the mlincis were prepared in our homes in former times. In the bag in which the mlinci is packed is a cardboard pad that protects them from breaking. Therefore, you can bring the mlinci home as a whole and can enjoy breaking them yourselve. Our products undergo regular health inspections of licensed operators. In preparation we always use the same quality raw materials and leave nothing to chance.

In our recipe version, Zagorje Mlinci do not have to be "boiled" in boiling water before being put into the baking dish as they will pull and soften the moisture from the meat stew. However, if you think it necessary, you can "mill" the mlinci to soften it before spreading the lasagna in layers, boiling water, then pour the boiling water into a long and shallow pan, dipping the zebrano mlinci, until they are soft, then place them in a baking pan and process them as described above.
