  • ¼ lb. sliced Jarlsberg®Cheese
  • 1/3 lb. sliced black forest, or smoked ham
  • 1 green apple, sliced thinly
  • Dijon mustard
  • Pretzel Slider Buns

1. Slice pretzel buns in half, and place on a baking sheet.

2. Top the bottom half with ham, one or two apple slices, and the sliced Jarlsberg® Cheese. Broil in the oven until the cheese is melted and the top half of the bun is toasted. Slather Dijon on the top half, and serve.

Slow-Cooked Jarlsberg® Cheese Shredded Beef Sandwiches

  • 6 slices Jarlsberg® Cheese
  • 2 lbs. chuck roast
  • 1 cup beef stock
  • 2 tbsp. Worcestershire
  • 1 tsp steak seasoning
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • ½ yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • Salt, pepper to taste
  • 6 crusty sandwich rolls

1. Season the surface of the roast with the steak seasoning. In a heavy bottomed Dutch oven, sear the meat on all sides. Transfer the beef to a slow cooker. Add the beef stock and Worcestershire, and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Alternatively, cook in the oven at 220 degrees for 4 hours.

2. Remove the roast from the slow cooker or oven, and shred into large chunks. Place the shredded beef back into the slow cooker to keep warm.

3. Sauté green peppers and onions in butter over medium heat for about 5 minutes until they begin to soften. Season with salt and pepper.

4. Slice and toast the sandwich rolls. Place shredded beef, Jarlsberg® Cheese, onions and peppers on one side of the rolls. Place the sandwiches on a baking sheet, open faced to melt the cheese, and broil – watching closely to avoid burning.
