Gruyère is a cow’s milk cheese that has been made in the town of Gruyères, Switzerland, and its surrounding areas since 1115. It is a sweet, nutty cheese with a hard texture and a pale yellow color. While it can be eaten as a table cheese, it is perhaps most known as one of the best melting cheeses.
What are some Gruyère cheese recipes?
Because Gruyère cheese melts to such a smooth, gooey consistency, it is one of the primary cheeses used for fondue. Also common are Gruyère mac and cheese and potatoes au gratin recipes. For smaller dishes and appetizers, try using this Swiss cheese in stuffed mushrooms and savory puff pastries!
