Last week my gym buddies, True & John, asked me if I had ever tried Bread Cheese. My response was a confused, “Bread? Cheese?” and they replied “Yes!” The next day I went out to buy some and experiment with it while in the mountains.
Similar to halloumi cheese, it can be grilled without melting, but has a more toasty flavor. Last month, Bon Appetit described it “as tasting similar to Brie, French toast, and pizza.” And, I can’t disagree with them. Like the Finnish (the originators of Bread Cheese), we served it as a breakfast side. We grilled it to a high warmth and slathered mountain peach preserves on top. It was squeaky and sweet; with a nice cheesy savory bite.
Another fun ingredient to experiment with – and easy enough to impress guests at your next brunch. You can find Bread Cheese at just about any fancy cheese section.
Wow yum…makes me think (sort of) about queso blanco…sear it and eat it. So yummy. Thanks for sharing!
