Who ever said American pancakes have to be sweet? What's stopping us from savory-ing them up? That's exactly what these pancakes are. They start with a basic American-style pancake recipe, but they come stuffed with crisp bacon, sautéed corn, jalapeño peppers, scallions, and—the kicker—pockets of gooey melted cheddar cheese.

As we enter our fourth week of Marmageddon, we'll be delving into the world of baking. Most people enjoy their Marmite on some toast with butter, so we were confident that adding the salty spread to some cheddar-studded scones would hit the spot. These small cakes are simple and deeply savory, begging to be slathered in even more Marmite and butter.
Mention cheese soup, and my mind immediately goes towards the neon orange cans of condensed Campbell's stuck between the chicken noodle and bean with bacon in the middle of the grocery store. But for Dave Becker, cheese is just another way to dress up soups in his new book Stewed. Instead of attempting to incorporate cheese directly into his Cheddar Ale Soup, he melts it on top a la French Onion. Oh, and that soup base? It's made up of beer. Yes, beer.

This recipe is designed to honor the cheddar cheese served along side. The crust has grated cheddar cheese baked into the layers, which causes it to brown more quickly than traditional pie crust, and creates an addictive, toasted cheese taste. The filling is also tailored to be paired with cheese, using firm, tart apples, and less sugar and cinnamon than traditional apple pies. A nice hit of freshly grated nutmeg is the prefect complement to the sharp cheddar, both inside and outside the crust.
