Gjetost (pronounced YAY-toast) is a traditional Norwegian cheese, most commonly eaten for breakfast. This extremely unique cheese has quite a presence.

Gjetost is made from the cow's milk, goat's milk, and whey, and heated very slowly until the water evaporates and the milk sugar caramelizes. The result is a reddish-brown cheese with a soft, fudgy texture and a very sweet caramel flavor.

In Scandinavia it's enjoyed on crispbread or toast in the morning. It's delicious with coffee. It can also be melted into fondue to add sweetness. It's a kid's favorite, and good with dessert too.


Ingredients:whey, milk, goat's milk, cream.
Reviews
This is absolutely my favourite cheese. It has a very rich taste, so a little goes a long way. You need only a thin slice to be satisfied. It has a smooth, creamy, caramel taste. First discovered it about 30 years ago, where a local restaurant served a slice of it alongside every sandwich. Was able to buy it in grocery stores, then couldn't find it for several years. Found it again recently, and the taste is precisely as I remember - smooth, creamy, delicious! Like a dessert treat, but much lighter. I always eat it chilled, but some people melt it, as in fondues.


I love this cheese. It's really good on bagels and English muffins and more.

This cheese is outstanding anyone would love this Norwich

I was brought up with goat's cheese as my father was from Norway. However, I never acquired a taste for it. On the other hand, my wife loves it.



Its Amazing... on anything or by itself.


We love this It's an acquired taste if you don't like it at first try it again By the 3rd taste you'll like it It's a sweet flavor that's like no other Good by itself or on crackers My grandmother used to eat it with sardeens or jelly on crackers or toast I like it by itself on crackers the best


My grandfather introduced this cheese to me as a child. He would serve it on toast for breakfast. I just love it.

Love this melted on crackers


This is my families favorite cheese for Christmas. It's great served on a slice of a Fuji apple.
