Plain and pesto havarti add appealing flavor to both hot and cold sandwiches, especially turkey. Try caraway havarti on roast beef. This cheese is so rich and creamy, it is great for melting.
To prepare baked havarti, wrap an 8-ounce piece in puff pastry, brush on egg wash and bake at 425º F until golden brown. Serve hot with fresh fruit such as apples or pears for a party appetizer.
Havarti, plain or dill, makes a flavorful fondue. Simply melt shreds or slices under the broiler and serve with bread sticks or cubes for dipping.
