Look for the Proudly Wisconsin Badge when shopping for cheese. Any brand of Wisconsin Aged Cheddar can be used in this recipe.


  1. Layer two Texas toast slices with cheddar; top with remaining toast slices. 
  2. Whisk eggs and milk in a large, shallow bowl. Place cereal in another large, shallow bowl. Dip one sandwich into egg mixture, coating each side. Then dip the sides of the sandwich into cereal, patting to help coating adhere.
  3. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Toast one sandwich for 2-4 minutes on each side or until bread is golden brown and cheese is melted. Repeat steps with remaining sandwich.

Do you have questions when shopping for cheese? Ask the cheesemonger! A cheesemonger specializes in the buying and selling of high-quality cheese, usually available in the specialty section of a grocery store or cheese shop.

Brunkow 2 Year Aged Cheddar cheese is smooth and creamy with a nutty flavor. The tangy, sharp cheese flavor is an ideal match for the sweetness of the cereal in this recipe. It’s also a great table cheese; try it with crackers, apple slices and your favorite red wine.
