Mealtime Magic: Jarlsberg®

Jarlsberg® has a cheese for every palate and every platter:

Jarlsberg® Cheese: The classic wedge, first created in 1956, offers a slightly nutty, mild and delicious taste. This cheese is naturally lactose and gluten free; perfect for any cheese board, is the right pairing for any meats of your choice.

Jarlsberg® Hickory Smoked Pre-Sliced Cheese is sure to please every member of the family. 

Jarlsberg® Lite: This reduced fat Swiss cheese imparts a mild, nutty mellow flavor and is also naturally lactose and gluten free.

This cheese makes great additions to party trays, a definite step up from traditional budget options. You can also use it in some fun and tasty recipes, like this Vegetarian Pizza:

  • 25 g yeast
  • 1.3 cups water
  • 3 tbsp. Olive oil
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 can of crushed tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp. Olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • salt og pepper
  • water
  • 400 g Jarlsberg®
  • 1 can artichokes with stem
  • 100 g pine nuts, toasted
  • A few basil leaves
Start with the dough. Add the yeast, salt, olive oil in a bowl before adding the lukewarm water. Mix everything by hand or preferably by using a dough kneader. Add flour gradually until you get an elastic and not too soft dough. Cover the dough with a cloth and let it rest for about 60 minutes. To make the tomato sauce, add all the ingredients in a bowl and mix using a hand blender. When the dough is ready, shape it into a thin round or square shape. Preheat the oven with the baking tray inside at 250ºC. Add tomato sauce, grated Jarlsberg® cheese and finally the artichokes (cut in large strips). Bake in oven at 250ºC for 15 minutes. While waiting for the pizza to be done, roast the pine nuts in a dry pan. Finally, add the roasted pine nuts and basil leaves and enjoy.

My family and I had a chance to try out some Jarlsberg® cheese, and it was delicious. The Lite hardly tastes like a low-calorie cheese with a full flavor. Even my picky girls really enjoyed trying a new kind of cheese!

About Jarlsberg® Cheese:
In 1956, we created Jarlsberg® Cheese, using an original Norwegian recipe. Why does Jarlsberg® cheese taste so mild, nutty and delicious? It's all part of the legend...and Norway's most guarded recipe! Jarlsberg Cheese Minis is the winner of the 2015 Men’s Health Best Snack Award and 2014 Men’s Health Best Foods For Men Award.
