What is Juustoleipä?

Juustoleipä, also known as Juusto or bread cheese, is a Finnish delicacy that has found its way into the hearts and plates of many around the world – especially to us here in the heart of Wisconsin! This cheese is made to be heated up and devoured. Whether you're baking it, grilling it, frying it, or giving it a sizzle in a skillet, Juusto gets crispy on the outside while staying gooey and warm on the inside. Enjoy it however you like – as the star of the show for dinner, a tasty appetizer, a sidekick to your main dish, or even as a sweet treat!
