Bread cheese
By Michelle Asel

Had the cheese at the Parke County Bridge Festival and just feel in love with it. I m so glad that I found someone that sells it. I will continue to order that cheese.

Our family and friends favorite low carb appetizer!
By Kelly Peterson

First I heat up the pan with butter and place this Brun-uusto bread cheese in the pan. Cover the pan with a lid and let it slowly cook in low heat for 5 minutes. Turn the cheese over and let it cook for another 5 minutes until both sides are dark and crispy while the center of the cheese is soften. When is ready place it on a plate and sprinkle with my homemade nut granola. Use a pizza cutter and cut it into 12 small bite size. And serve it immediately. I wish I can post a picture here to show you how awesome it look, but I guess you can imagine the crusty outside with the soft center than comes with a wonder butter flavor. This cheese has become our family favorite appetizer! I served it twice a week and it is gone fast once I put it on the table. Each time I'll buy 10 pieces and it came in a box that kept it cool. Thank you for the speedy shipping method.

very different
By Carol Harris

We haven't ever had anything like this before! I heated it up in the microwave like it suggested on the instructions and to my surprise it held it's shape and was still sturdy enough to slice while it was hot. It was kind of chewy and a little salty but had a nice mild flavor. I couldn't get it to the point of being spreadable or even "dipable". I used it on baked potatoes and also rolled it up in ham slices with a tortilla as a snack for my grandson. The instructions said it was good with both savory and sweet but I don't think I'd use this with sweets.

A Unique Cheese
By Sandra Farrar

I just received an order for cheese that I have had before and cheese that I never had. Brun-uusto Bread Cheese is one I have never had but I kept seeing this name and reading about it so I gave it a try. I am very happy to say that after trying it I loved it. It is quite unique and did I mention tasty as well. This will be in my orders going forward as well as adding it to my gift orders. The entire package of all the cheeses I purchased came in excellent condition and was still quite cool so all in all a very good experience.

By Jan Robbins
