  1. makes a great grilled cheese sandwich. excellent on tuna melts too.

    1. I don't know about great but munster and coarse bulger wheat makes a tasty filling side dish. Pita stuffed with munster cheese and tossed in the oven to crisp up is a grand way to start the day.

      1. This recipe is one of my favorites from the cookbook and made me appreciate munster.

        Baked Couscous with Spinach, Tomatoes and Muenster from Quick Vegetarian Pleasures, by Jeanne Lemlin (I don't use the pine nuts and do use chicken stock (sometimes canned broth) for couscous:

        If I don't have fresh basil or oregano, I use dried oregano.

        1. thanks for the ideas...have tried the grilled cheese, I agree, great grilled cheese.
          Will try the baked couscous. Sounds good!

          1. Perfect for quesadillas, queso fundido, choriqueso fillings for enchiladas, pretty much anywhere you'd want some melted cheese in Mexican food.
