Meadowkaas & Omelette Recipe
Beautiful cheese made from spring milk is only available for three months out of the year, starting in early summer after the cheese has cured and ripened. The fresh new blades of spring grass make a terrifically nutritious meal for a grazing dairy cow. That grass, in turn, creates stunning milk and delicious cheese.
Produced by Uniekaas in the Netherlands from pasteurized cow’s milk, Meadowkaas is made only in very limited quantities during the Spring months each year. Wheels are matured for four weeks prior to release. The interior texture of Meadowkaas is firm and yet slightly pliant, dotted with the occasional “eye” or hole. Flavors include sweet cream, cultured butter and a hint of salt.
This rich cheese makes for a perfect accompaniment to homemade omelettes!
