Bread Cheese...huh?

Last night we had a simple, yet elegant dinner.  Since it was just the two of us, Fred and I decided to have a piece of filet, along with a fresh salad full of tender greens, feta, almonds and ramps.  

To start, we enjoyed something called Bread Cheese...the star of this post. 

Bread cheese {also called Juustoleipa} was originally produced in Finland and Sweden and during the cheesemaking process, it is baked.  The slightly charred appearance looks a lot like the crust of bread since the heat from the oven caramelizes the sugars on the outside surface. 

To prepare, warm-up a grill pan to medium heat and cook approximately 6 minutes per side.  I only made half of the loaf since it was only us.

With a very mild, delicate flavor, it serves well with fruit, crackers, fresh bread, jelly/jam, or honey.    

Cut into small pieces and enjoy warm.  

Below is the website for Carr Valley {the brand of bread cheese that I purchased from Wegman's}.

A quiet house, good wine, and a delicious dinner made for a relaxing evening.  Love it!

Enjoy the day!
