Lacy Swiss (also spelt Lacey Swiss) is an American Swiss cheese commonly mistaken for Baby Swiss. Both these cheeses are characterized by small, widespread open holes but their tastes significantly differ from each other. Lacy Swiss is made from low fat cow’s milk and when sliced the white to ivory cheese is supposed to look like thin sheets of lace.
In contrast to Swiss cheese, Lacy Swiss is mild in flavor with nutty undertones, more on the lines of Monterey Jack and Provolone. It is also softer, thus melting well in Swiss dishes such as quiche. Lacy Swiss is low calorie, less salty and a healthy alternative to classic Swiss cheese. Pair it with deli sandwiches, hamburgers, sandwiches or a lettuce wrap and you have a winner on hands!
