If you're in for a different type of cheese, you'll have to try the bread cheese - called Juustoleipa in Finland. A cheese that will remind you of Halloumi. A cheese that you can heat and it does not melt in the same way regular cheese does; it becomes soft, but does not start running around.

Bread cheese is chewy, semi-soft, a little salty. Try the following suggestions; deep-fry it, grill it, toast it, microwave it, bake it. Serve it with honey, lemon, or do as the Finns, dunk it in your coffee. Just enjoy it.

Carr Valley Cheese in Wisconsin is the maker of this unflavored cow's milk bread cheese and they have received awards in cheese competitions more than once; 2015 World Cheese Awards, and 2016 World Championship Cheese Contest to name a few.

Ingredients:pasteurized cow's milk, enzymes, calcium, salt.
This cheese is amazing for all. I just pan fried it with olive oil, and it was fantastic. All my guests loved it!

I tried this cheese for the first time about 9 months ago. Since then, I go through about an 8 ounce slab every 1 to 2 weeks. Seriously, all by myself. I don't tell anyone else when I have some because I don't want to share. Easily the best cheese I have ever eaten. Oh, and I have eaten a LOT of cheese in my lifetime. I live on cheese, charcuterie, and wine for the most part. You cannot have my bread cheese. It's mine. I love warming it up in the oven for a few minutes and getting it squeaky and bubbly, then eating it with jalapeno pepper jelly or prepared horseradish or aioli or fresh pesto or even all by itself. How did I live 54 years and not know of its existence? Buy some, but save some for me.

True awesomeness!!!!
