What is Baked Cheese?

Baked cheese, also known as JuustoleipäJuusto, or bread 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 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!

Where can I find The Big Moo Baked Cheese?

You can find The Big Moo Baked Cheese at select retail outlets, prominently displayed in the Deli & Specialty Cheese Section. Look for it at stores like PublixH-E-BGiant EagleSafewayAlbertsonsLowe's Foods, and more! If it's not stocked at your local grocery store, don't hesitate to speak with your Deli Manager—they might be able to bring it in for you!

Additionally, The Big Moo is available at charming mom-and-pop cheese shops across the United States, including locations like the Back Alley Cheese Bar in Arizona, Paulbeck's County Market in Minnesota, and Gillette Cheese Barn in Wyoming.
