    Bread cheese...?

    This is a Finnish cheese, known in Finland as juustoleipä. There it is made with reindeer milk, here in the USA it is made with cow’s milk. As best I understand, much of the moisture has been removed, and what is left is a dense, squeaky, salty cheese that doesn’t melt when you grill it in a pan; instead, it softens, and browns up like a burger. Or a piece of toast.

    That being said, it’s... okay enough. I mean, I like it, but I’m not ready to rave about it. It’s cheese. It’s warm and crispy. It’s good. Am I missing something?

    I have had a cheese before that is grillable like that, and it was great. Maybe the same thing.worked great in a hash when added towards the end.

      When I was a young man, one of my uncles did a lot of work for the city and county, and part of his pay would sometimes be surplus food. Like those giant cans of pork and beans. Since he had 4 boys (and me) to do the work (stuff like cleaning libraries - try running one of those floor buffers when you only weigh 130 lbs), he occasionally took that form of payment. Sometimes he would get what we called "gubmint cheese". It wasn't what you describe - it was a big block of yellowish something, but it didn't melt either. At all. You could leave it out in the sun on a 100 degree day (we did this experiment - got in more than a little trouble over it too) and it wouldn't melt.

        I did not enjoy that cheese even as a youngster.

      I like it. I also like halloumi and other grillable cheeses.

      Was thinking this sounds like halloumi, which is fantastic griddled/grilled.

        Most of the articles on google page 1 compare the two.

        I want to revisit this. I gave it a second try, but this time I bought garlic bread cheese. And this is the hot ticket. Much better. Cube it, then sauté it in butter until it is brown on all sides.

          Halloumi and kasseri (oooh saganaki) are in my fridge as we speak. I've grilled a chunk of provolone before for an appetizer. Pretty good but gooey to eat. Who says that's all bad.

          This is a good article on grill-worthy cheeses.

            Not grillable but Gjetost from Norway is a unique goat cheese if you are into Scandinavian cheeses. My wife loves it.
