The recipe calls for brick cheese - what can I substitute?

ANSWER:

The name Brick for an American cheese that hails from Wisconsin is said to have come from the fact that bricks were once used to weight the curd and press out the whey, plus it's also brick shaped. Pale yellow and semisoft, the cheese has a mild, earthy flavor when young, but as it ripens, it becomes nearly as strong as limburger.

Good substitutes would be Lagerkaese, Havarti, Jack cheese, cheddar, or if well-aged brick is called for...Limburger.
