Finlandia Cheese Review & Giveaway CLOSED

23 Shares

Finlandia Cheese comes from…….big surprise…..Finland.

Many name brand cheese from the U.S. (I won’t name names) acquire the milk to make their cheese from big industrialized dairy farms.  Cows are feed and injected with hormones to produce the most milk as possible.  Ick.  It doesn’t make for the most appetizing cheese does it?  I prefer my milk and cheese without added growth hormones and antibiotics.  Doesn’t everyone?

Finlandia cheese comes from “the purest milk in Europe with no added hormones.  The milk comes from small dairy farmers where the average farm has 20 cows and all are treated humanely with regular health screenings.”  This is the way cows should be treated.  I wish more companies would use this approach.

I decided to make Cuban Reubens with Mojo Mayo with my Finlandia cheese.  I recently received my first Cuisinart Griddler Jr. and this sandwich seemed like a great way to try Finlandia.  The recipe uses black beans within the sandwich.  I thought this was an original idea and I was excited to give it a try.  The results?  Delicious!  Check out my picture.

Notice that wonderful melted cheese?

This sandwich was made with Finlandia’s new healthy Lacey Swiss and Finlandia Muenster.  The Lacey Swiss has 25% less fat than regular Swiss and is a great source of calcium and low in sodium.

Here is another great recipe.  Visit Finlandia.com to view more great recipe ideas with cheese.
