The first time I ate brunost, or brown cheese, was when I visited Norway two years ago. The brown block of sweet, caramelized cheesy goodness, a cheese slicer, and toast was a breakfast staple. (We also had jam. Lots of jam.)
I didn't continue the practice back in the US, but reading Jude's post dedicated to the Norwegian cheese at Apple Pie, Patis, & Paté made me want to reintroduce the habit into my life. I wouldn't mind starting my day with a few thin curls of brown cheese and sliced apples.
