If you can’t find Reblochon cheese, some great substitutes will yield similar results.

So, let’s get right into it.

9 Best Substitutes for Reblochon Cheese  

1. Gruyere

If you are looking for an easy find that also has the buttery, nutty and fruity flavors of Reblochon cheese, Gruyere is your best bet.

It shares almost the same flavor profile, while also being a great melting cheese.

It is perfect for recipes from baked potatoes to sandwiches.

How to Substitute? 

Because of how similar they are, you can go ahead with a 1:1 ratio substitution of Gruyere cheese for Reblochon cheese in your recipe.

Fontina is great for melting and works well in almost any recipe that you can think of.

It is milder in comparison but works just as well.

How to Substitute? 

You can go ahead and replace the Reblochon cheese with the same measure of Fontina cheese in your recipes.

3. Port Salut Cheese 

When looking for the fruity essence of Reblochon cheese, Port Salut is a better fit than others on the list.

This French cheese has gone through several modifications and the modern one comes quite close to resembling Reblochon cheese in flavor and texture.

How to Substitute? 

Although you could use more or less the same measure, you might want to play around with the ratio to find the balance you are looking for. 

4. Taleggio 

Often used as a Gruyere substitute, Taleggio will also work well as a Reblochon cheese substitute. It is mild in flavor and creamy, making it a great melting cheese.

But remember that it has a strong odor, and if you are not a big fan, you might want to opt for another alternative.

How to Substitute? 

You can use more or less the same measure but you might want to try the ratio out first to get the flavors you prefer.

5. Muenster

Muenster is a great melting cheese and an easier find at stores.

It is mild in flavor, which makes it perfect for those who don’t like the intense flavors of other alternatives on the list.

But you could also mix it with other cheese to get more flavor-packed results. 

How to Substitute? 

You can use the same measure or experiment to find the ratio that brings out the flavors that you like.

6. Raclette 

If you have raclette cheese to work within your pantry and want to replace Reblochon cheese in your cooking, you can go right ahead with this substitution.

Although the flavors might not exactly be the same, it does the job quite well. 

How to Substitute? 

You can use it in any recipe that calls for melting cheese, in equal measure but not in any recipe where the cheese is used without melting.

It melts wonderfully and has a great buttery taste.

How to Substitute? 

You can use more or less the same measure but you might want to play around with the ratio to find the flavor balance that you prefer.

8. Brie 

For strong flavors with creamy textures and great melting properties, brie is an option you might want to consider.

Keep in mind that Brie is saltier and more flavor-packed but it should work well in sandwiches or grills and even with fruits. 

How to Substitute? 

You will have to experiment with the ratio of brie you want to use in your Reblochon recipe because of the different textures and flavor profiles.

9. Camembert

Camembert and brie are often used interchangeably and hence it can also be used as a good replacement for Reblochon cheese.

It is soft and creamy with a milder yet just as salty in flavor as brie cheese.

You can use it in your sandwiches or pair it with fruits and nuts. 

How to Substitute? 

Just like with brie, you will have to play around with the portion of camembert cheese to use in your recipe, depending on the flavors you are looking for.
