  • Muenster (MUHN-stuhr ) cheese originates from the Alsace region of France. This semi-soft cheese is mild when young and becomes more robust as it ages. American versions of this cheese are quite bland.
  • Cocktail rye bread can be used in place of the pumpernickel bread.
  • Make the spread up to one day in advance. Cover tightly and refrigerate.
