Typically, potatoes are baked with hard cheese, which melts during the cooking process and becomes very viscous. As an alternative, you can try salty brynza cheese. Although this type of cheese crumbles on its own, it becomes quite homogeneous during baking. That's why the dish is so tender and melts in your mouth.

Food blogger Olena Sagun, known as elena_sagun, shared a recipe for baked potatoes with brynza on her Instagram page.
