What is Baked Cheese?

Baked cheese, bread cheese, squeaky cheese, juusto, Juustoleipä - There are so many names for this delicious specialty cheese! 

This Scandinavian delicacy found its way into the hearts of Wisconsinites and many others around the world! This cheese is made to be heated up and devoured, developing a crispy exterior with a warm, melty interior.

Whether you're baking it, grilling it, frying it, or giving it a sizzle in a skillet, baked cheese gets crispy on the outside while staying gooey and warm on the inside. Enjoy it however you like – as a main for dinner, a tasty appetizer, a sidekick to your main dish, or even as a sweet treat!
