Serve this cheese on crackers alongside snack meats like summer sausage, salami, and pepperoni. Its characteristically mild flavor will offset the spices in the meats deliciously. Pair this snack with a white fruity wine, like Pinot Gris or Pinot Noir. Because of its consistent creamy texture, even when melted, muenster cheese makes a great ingredient for grilled cheese sandwiches and patty melts. Some muenster cheese, if aged long enough, may take on a more pungent aroma and a stronger taste.
