Cheese is a food that can be dressed up for just about everyone: you can find it paired with the finest wines, or you can find it sitting on a party tray at your neighbor’s tailgate party with lunch meat and crackers.
Today is Cheese Lover’s Day, and no matter your preferred way of incorporating cheese into your celebratory cuisine, this day is totally for you!
Celebrate in the cheesiest way possible with these ooey, gooey recipes.
No longer do you have to wait until fair season for fried cheese to be on the menu. You can make your own fried cheese right at home in your waffle iron.
This recipe calls for ingredients that can be easily found in your fridge and pantry: eggs, flour, cheese and breadcrumbs. So when that hankering for a gooey, cheesy treat comes roaring, just reach for a few staple ingredients and toss them into the waffle iron to satisfy that dairy craving.
This recipe for Mozzarella Stick Onion Rings is something that needs to be tasted to believe. Imagine having the flavor of crispy, fried onions rings and mozzarella cheese all in one bite: that’s exactly what this recipe creates!
Not only does the recipe deliver such a delicious treat, but they’re actually really fun to make, too!
Mac and cheese has long been one of the best comfort foods to make its way onto your plate, but now, with these Homemade Mac and Cheese Bites, they can be taken beyond the plate to wherever you are!
We know the importance of an unforgettable queso dip, which is why the very first item on our menu is Homemade Chips & Queso. Even though we personally think the secret recipe for our made-from-scratch queso is second to none, this recipe for Slow Cooker Spicy Beef Queso Dip comes in at a close second.
It’s loaded with beef, jalapeños, Ro-tel and all your other favorite queso ingredients. Make sure to bring your own bag of chips because this dip will be the first to go!
Cheese curds — or “squeaky cheese” — is some of the best tasting cheese out there because of its soft texture and fresh flavor. Kick up the flavor volume a couple notches by tossing a bag of squeaky cheese into the frying pan!
While you’re waiting for the oil to heat up, mix together a buttermilk roux and sprinkle in a bit of cayenne pepper and breadcrumbs. This cheesy, gooey treat with a spicy hint of cayenne is the perfect way to celebrate Cheese Lover’s Day!
We wouldn’t be able to call ourselves “Cheddar’s” if we didn’t have some of the tastiest cheese dishes around!
