I stumbled into a local butcher store a few months ago and found this cheese, Brun-uusto cheese bread.

It says cheese bread but it is not a bread. 😀

The authentic version of Juustoleipa (Juusto), meaning cheese bread, is a specialty cheese from Southern Ostrobothnia, Northern Finland and Kainuu. Brun-uusto is a Wisconsin-made cheese bread.

My family loves it! I serve this cheese as an appetizer regularly and they never get tired of it. 😀

So now I buy in bulk every month directly from Wisconsin Cheese Mart.

Grilled cheese Brun-uusto

To prepare the delicious cheese bread, first, heat up a pan and melt one tablespoon of salted Amish Roll Butter.

Cut open the wrapper and place the cheese on the melted butter.

Cover with a lid and let it cook in low heat for about 5-7 minutes, or until lightly puffed up, browned and crispy. Turn to cook the other side for another 5 minutes until the both sides are browned and crusty.

When the outer surface of the cheese are crusty and inside is soften, remove it and place it on a serving plate.

Drizzle the remaining browned butter in the pan onto the cheese.

Use a pizza cutter and cut the cheese into 15 bite size pieces. You can feel the crust when cutting it.

The result is crusty on the outside and soften center with a buttery flavor.

Sprinkle with my homemade nut and seed granola, and serve hot.

This is a perfect high fat appetizer to set the evening before dinner. Enjoy it with a glass of red wine!
