I love Brun-uusto!!!

I came upon this cheese in the store the other day and it makes for a perfect appetizer or snack.  If you love cheese like we do here, you will love this one!  It’s “Brun-uusto,” Brunkow’s Baked Cheese made at Brunkow Cheese in Darlington, Wisconsin.

It’s a wonderful thing!  The recipe comes from Finland, where it is known as Juustalepia, (Hoostah-lee-pah) or “bread cheese.”  It is an appropriate name because Brun-uusto’s aroma and appearance likens itself to toasted bread.   The cheese has a browned, caramelized crisp crust with the flavor being mild, buttery and a little salty.

Brun-uusto can be eaten right out of the packaging but, it is meant to be enjoyed warm whether by heating in a skillet, on a grill or even in the micro for a short time.  It can definitely stand alone but is especially good with a tomato slice atop it and then warmed, adding a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese.  It also has an amazing flavor when warmed and topped with something sweet such as maple syrup, marmalade or honey.  

You simply have to try it to discover how incredibly delicious it is ~ it’s an addicting, unique cheese and you won’t be able to stop at one piece!
