As any turophile will now, cheese can be enjoyed on its own, in a sandwich, or as part of more complex meals.

Broccoli and Cheese Soup
One of the most popular recipes on this list is broccoli and cheese soup, which is why it’s got the number one spot. It’s easy to make, straightforward, and absolutely delicious. You’ll find that broccoli and cheese soup is a great accompaniment to dishes like roast lamb, roast beef, and even some chicken dishes. It’s also a healthy dish because it’s loaded with broccoli, which is regarded as a superfood.
Mac ‘n’ Cheese
Mac ‘n’ cheese is one of the world’s most popular cheese dishes. It’s enjoyed by adults and children, and it makes great nursery food. If you don’t want a bog-standard mac ‘n’ cheese, then why not turn it gourmet by adding truffles, gourmet cheese, and handmade macaroni? You can also add mushrooms and Parmesan cheese, which will turn this dish from simple to expert. Even if you use gourmet ingredients, it’s still easy to make and very straightforward to prepare.

Another absolutely gorgeous cheese recipe that you need to try is cheese-baked tortellini. This recipe consists of cheese-filled tortellini, which has Parmesan cheese grated over the top. It’s baked until the cheese and pasta become crispy and delicious. If you want to add a crispy texture to this dish, then you can add breadcrumbs before and after.
Ziti is a delicious Italian-American pasta dish, popularized by the HBO television drama The Sopranos. It’s not necessarily a ‘cheese’ dish but without the layers of cheese, and Parmesan grated on top, it wouldn’t be as delicious. This dish is crispy, meaty, and full of flavor. It’s really straightforward to make and isn’t complicated like many Italian-American dishes are. You can use cheddar, mozzarella, and Parmesan.

Shepherd’s pie is another ‘not-really-a-cheese-dish’ although the dish wouldn’t be what it is without the cheese. It’s not your typical pie, and if anything, it’s more similar to the aforementioned ziti than it is a chicken and mushroom pie. Mashed potato tops mince beef, carrots, and peas. On top of the mashed potato is grated cheddar cheese, which gives the dish a delicious, chewy, crispy texture. Shepherd’s pie is a favorite of every English schoolboy.
Cheese and Onion Quiche
Cheese and onion quiche is a fantastic lunchtime dish. It’s complicated to put together, but once you master it, then you’ll be able to whip it up very quickly. Cheese and onion quiche is best paired with a nice salad. You can add broccoli, as well as caramelized onions to add flavor.
If you’re a cheese lover, then this is the list for you. Be sure to give every recipe on this list a go, and make sure to add your own little twists to them.
