Cheese Recipes for All the Cheese Lovers

Most cheese lovers will sit down with a block of cheese and be content. Nothing else needed. But, if you want to class up your obsession with this ooey gooey food, perhaps some of the cheese recipes in this roundup will help!



If you’ve never experienced cheese fondue, it’s time. Years ago at my wedding, we had a chocolate fountain. EVERYONE loved it and it was probably the biggest hit of the entire reception. However, if I had my way, I’d have preferred a cheese fondue pot. What can I say, I like the savory more than the sweet. Don’t let your life go by without making a cheese fondue like Well Plated’s recipe.

New York Style Cheese Pizza

If you can’t go to your corner pizza place to pick up a New York style pizza, the next best thing is making one at home. I’ve had to send pizza dough from New York pizza places to family and friends who move off of Long Island, but miss our pizza. A great pizza always starts with a great dough, so if you need great dough, get in touch with your New York friends and have them send you dough.

However, if you don’t have a New York contact, Baker by Nature’s dough and pizza recipe would work well!

Authentic Canadian Poutine

Cheese curds on top of fries and it’s all covered in gravy….what’s not to like? When you want a truly authentic Poutine recipe, you can’t go wrong with Seasons & Suppers Authentic Canadian Poutine recipe. If you can’t find cheese curds, it says use Mozzarella. Honestly, even though I love Mozzarella, do your best to find cheese curds. They truly do make all the difference.

Grilled Gorgonzola-Basile Burger

America’s favorite food could quite possibly be “the cheeseburger”. We eat them at every BBQ, and can’t get enough of them at fast food joints! Looking for a unique spin on a cheeseburger? Try All Recipes’s Grilled Gorgonzola Basile Burgers the next time you’re jonesing for a cheeseburger.

Cheesy Stuffed Tomatoes

Now, unless you include meat in your stuffed tomato, it’s basically a side dish. So, consider The Cookie Rookie’s Cheesy Stuffed Tomatoes more of a side dish or maybe a homemade snack? Either way, they’re delicious!

Cheese Grits

Grits. Are they an old favorite or a comfort food? Well, for me it’s an old favorite but for you they might be a comfort food, so to each her own. Either way you look at them, making Food and Wine’s Cheese Grits will hit the spot any day of the week.

Cheese & Sausage Stromboli

New Yorkers love our Stromboli. We put just about anything in them, but one of my favorite combinations is cheese with sausage. Garnish and Glaze’s Sausage Pepperoni Stromboli adds that extra pepperoni aspect that sets it apart from other sausage Stromboli recipes. A little something I like to do is get sandwich pepperoni from the deli counter, instead of the smaller pepperoni slices in packages. The deli sandwich ones are a bit larger and bake up nicely with the pieces of sweet Italian sausage.


Nachos with Cheese

The most classic of all cheese recipes are Nachos. If you missed it, head over to my nachos recipe roundup to find the best nachos dishes around the internet.

Baked Three-Cheese Onion Dip w/Chive & Pepperoncini

Cream, cheddar and Monterey Jack cheeses make the creamiest onion dip for any party, or family movie night snack. You can toast up some french baguette to serve with the dip. We also love big Fritos scoops and tortilla scoop chips with Epicurious’s Baked Three Cheese Onion Dip!

Cheesy Samosas

The Odehlicious has the perfect recipe for simple Cheese Somosas you can make quickly for a great after-school snack for the kids. It’s a far better option than throwing a bag of chips at them as they do homework before heading out to sports, or other activities.

Caramelized Onion & Blue Cheese Tart

With some pre-made puff pastry you can grab at the grocery store, and any brand blue cheese, Rogue Creamery’s Caramelized Onion Tart with Blue Cheese really isn’t difficult to make, even though you have to caramelize onions!

Roasted Garlic Pull-apart Cheese Bread

If you’re familiar with baking, Bread by Elise’s Cheesy Garlic Bread won’t be as hard to make. It’s a super intensive experience with lots of steps, but totally worth it. You’ll probably need to make a couple of loaves of this pull-apart bread, because people will wipe you out in minutes if you have only one loaf.

Cheese Cookies

I’d never heard of cheese cookies until I went looking around to find out how to make cheese straws. Apparently, those take a lot of time and Southern Bite’s Cheese Straw Cookies take much less time but have all the same flavor. WIN! The key to this recipe, and really any recipe that requires shredded cheese is to get a block of cheese and grate the cheese by hand.


Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Comfort foods hit different when you make these cheese recipes at home! Sure, when you’re feeling down or lonely, heading out to a restaurant for some comfort food could cheer you up. However, comfort foods like grilled cheese sandwiches taste better when you don’t have to change out of your sweats and do your hair. Head into the kitchen and make Love and Lemons’s Grilled Cheese recipe with a little tomato soup for the ultimate comfort food experience.

Beer & Cheddar Soup

Beer and cheese go together like peanut butter and jelly! Personally, I don’t drink alcohol anymore, but even when I did, I never liked beer. However, when cooking with beer, somehow it doesn’t suck. All Recipes’s Wisconsin Natives Beer Cheese Soup balances out the beer flavor rather well, and it really does bring out the cheese flavor everyone loves!

Cheeseburger Soup

How amazing is the world we live in? We can eat a cheeseburger with a spoon and it tastes delicious! Salt and Lavender’s Cheeseburger Soup recipe creates the cheeseburger experience without the bun. Personally I don’t include the pickle stuff in ours, as we’re not a family who enjoys pickles. I also save MOST of the bacon to top the soup, but definitely add some to the soup as it cooks. It helps to cook the ground beef in the bacon fat!

Potato Cheddar Soup

One of the most beloved comfort foods, after grilled cheese and macaroni & cheese of course, is creamy dreamy Well Plated’s Potato Cheddar Soup recipe.


Macaroni & Cheese

Pasta in any form is comforting, filling, and usually a family favorite in almost every household. To this day, my kids devour Mac & Cheese. These days, my kids prefer making it from scratch instead of from a box. Well, the pasta is out of a box still since we have limited counter space and fresh pasta-making has proven to be difficult. However, the cheese sauce is from scratch these days. The Chunky Chef’s Family Favorite Baked Mac and Cheese can be made with any shaped pasta, and we love using Cavatappi. Trust me, it works much better than simple elbows.

Stuffed Shells

Ask almost any Italian-American which stuffed pasta they love, it’s usually stuffed shells. Huge pasta shells stuffed with our favorite classic cheeses: ricotta, mozzarella, parmesan. There isn’t much wrong with Dinner at the Zoo’s Stuffed Shells recipe, except it could use more cheese. Cheese lovers can never have enough cheese.


Cheese ✔️.

Meat ✔️.

Pasta ✔️.

Everything you need in one baked dish! Natasha’s Kitchen Lasagna recipe checks all the boxes for an amazing baked pasta dish, with a surprise cottage cheese addition (it does not replace ricotta, it’s in addition to it)!

Even though dairy doesn’t always agree with me, I can’t stay away from it. I tend to eat more hard cheeses, and ones lower in lactose. or I find cow’s milk cheese alternatives (did you know they have sheep and goat’s milk mozzarella, as well as Ricotta? They do! There are also plenty of lactose free cheeses, too. Cheese is life, after all.
