My new favorite turkey & cheese sandwich

I picked up some Bergenost at Costco the other day (the label describes it as a "buttery triple cream Norwegian style cheese). This afternoon I made a simple, but delicious sandwich with it. It was simply whole wheat bread, turkey breast (Hillshire Farms, but would be even better with better turkey), sliced grape tomatoes (the sweetness was what made them perfect) and Bergenost. I melted the bergenost with the torch until it was slightly browned. In addition to the creamy, slightly toasted flavor that the melted cheese brought, it held the tiny tomato slices in place . I put a little mayo on the bread and enjoyed every bite. :)

torch melted cheese over tomatoes and turkey sounds really good, and i love the functional thinking of how the cheese holds the slippery little buggers in place.

may i have one with onion, please?

The brie and turkey sandwiches at Au Bon Pain used to be quite tasty.

I was going to bring that up and then realized she was talking about a triple cream, which means it's really, really soft and kind of spreadable. Regardless though, I love Butterkase, it's makes an awesome ham and cheese panini.

I'm not sure how well it would hold up in the mail. I can pretend to send you one and you can pretend to eat it... Or if you have a Costco nearby you may be able to pick some Bergenost up and try it yourself!


Dad, I'm not too familiar with Butterkase, so I couldn't tell you, but you should try it, so you can tell me how it is.

Bill, was there anything on the sandwich besides turkey and brie? sounds like a good combo to me!

Not to my recollection, Sprout. The double cream brie helped compensate for the dryness of the turkey without having to resort to the use of mayonnaise.

I bought some Bergenost at BJ's last year and it was so good!

If you're in the states, you can order Bergenost from Yancey's:

Yancey's Fancy

What makes it "unique" is it has a slightly sour taste (it pairs well with lingonberries....). It is classed as a semi-soft cheese. I imagine if they do mail order, they know how to ship their cheeses.
