How to Eat or Use Cheddar Cheese
Cheddar cheese is a delicious and versatile food that can be enjoyed in many different ways. Here are some of the best ways to eat cheddar cheese:
One of the best ways to enjoy cheddar cheese is always to eat it raw. Especially if you get a good quality cave-aged cheddar, the taste and texture are both amazing (but earthier and grassier) when eaten on their own.

Cheddar cheese can also be cooked and melted. It’s delicious when melted on top of a burger, grilled cheese, or quesadilla. You can also use it in recipes like mac and cheese, casseroles, and more!
Know as one of the ‘mother sauces’, cheddar cheese sauce is a classic that can be used in so many different ways. Try it on top of broccoli, as a dip for nachos or fries, or even in pasta dishes!
Cheddar cheese soup goes really well with broccoli and chicken broth, as the flavors compliment each other perfectly. Also, it gives a rich creamy depth to it. This soup is also great with a crusty piece of bread on the side or filled in a bread bowl.
Cheddar cheese fondue is a great way to change up your standard cheese fondue. Use the extra-sharp cheddar with Swiss cheese, beer, and worcestershire sauce for the perfect taste. Serve with cubes of bread, fruits, veggies, or pretzels!
Cheddar cheese pizza is a great blend of the classic mozzarella cheese pizza. It adds colors, has a stronger taste, and doesn’t blister or melt as easily. The cheddar gives a salty, sharp, and heavier flavor that pairs well with the tomato sauce. It’s also common to use with parmesan cheese.
- Apple Pie
Back in the 18th century, cheddar cheese was often served with apple pie. The sharpness of the cheddar cuts through the sweetness of the apples and makes for a delicious and unique flavor combination.
The cheddar can be slightly melted which will add a nice creaminess to the filling. If you’re looking for a new way to enjoy apple pie, give this combo a try!
So, there you have it! These are just some of the ways that you can use cheddar cheese in your cooking.
Be sure to experiment and find the methods that you like best.
