A Toast to Gjetost

By December 31, 2012

Follow me on:

Since today is the day for making toasts - and resolutions don't begin until tomorrow - here's a second toast to accompany my earlier blog ( "A Skagen Toast to the New Year"): here's to Gjetost! Norway's hallmark brown cheese, packaged in the U.S. under the "Ski Queen" label, is delicious when sliced thin and placed on toast (or crispbread). Yet it also lends itself beautifully to creating this non-alcoholic gjetost fondue, perfect for dipping meatballs, apple slices, chunks of rye bread, and roasted potatoes.

Hello, Kari! I’m 3/4 Norwegian and 1/4 Danish (which I think is Danish blue cheese!) YUM!

How do you pronounce ‘Skagen?’
I’ve heard it’s pronounced as ‘skane.’
Any thoughts?
