Meadowkaas & Omelette Recipe

Meadowkaas a seasonal specialty Dutch gouda that is only available for a few precious months of the year. This young, creamy cheese is made exclusively from the fresh spring milk of cows that have grazed on grass and wildflower pastures of northern Holland. Its flavor is mild and buttery, with a slight hint of sweet grass.

Meadowkaas has a soft texture and melts easily, so try it atop burgers, fresh oven-roasted vegetables, toast, or pasta dishes. Or savor it simply with organic water crackers and fresh fruit. Pair it with a light Belgian ale, such as Lost Coast’s Great White ale. Try a wedge today: regularly $16.99 per lb, Meadowkaas is now on sale for $12.99 per lb!
