One cheese, three ways - Cheddar Cheese

 Cheddar sometimes gets a blah reputation. With so many great cheeses to choose from, you might think choosing cheddar is unoriginal; maybe you feel like you’re settling for second best.

To me, cheddar is the little black dress of cheeses. I can dress it up with roasted garlic, orzo, and chicken, or I can dress it down with macaroni and find some kids to share it with. I can even make it into biscuits that go with everything in my (kitchen) wardrobe.

Just make sure the cheddar you use is a good-quality one – as always, the better the ingredients, the better the results.

Here are three ways you can add cheddar to your recipes!


Roasted Garlic and Cheddar Orzo with Chicken and Broccoli: This recipe takes a little time over the stove, but the results are so worth it.


Macaroni and cheese: The ultimate family dinner, and so much better than what comes in a box!
