What is Baked Cheese?

Juustoleipä, Juusto, Bread Cheese, Grilling Cheese - our baked cheese goes by many different names! Baked cheese is a common Scandinavian delicacy that found its way into the hearts of Wisconsinites and many others around the world! This cheese is made to be heated up before eaten, 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!
