'cheddar' on Serious Eats

Old-Fashioned Pounded Cheese With Walnuts and Port Syrup From 'The New Midwestern Table'

Making pounded cheese from Amy Thielen's new cookbook, The New Midwestern Table, was a jump into uncharted territory for me. Dropping blocks of gorgeous aged Cheddar into a food processor was an act of faith. But drizzled with sweet port syrup and chopped walnuts, the final dish is an entertainment-worthy appetizer for any and all cheesehounds. More

Cheddar-Marmite Scones

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. More

Cheddar Ale Soup with Pumpernickel Toast from 'Stewed'

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. More

Cheddar Crusted Apple Pie

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. More

Chili Con Queso

In Texas, whipping up a bowl of the cheesy dip known as Chili Con Queso can be as simple as melting a block of Velveeta with a can of diced tomatoes with green chiles. This is a upgraded version of it using cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese. More

Bread Baking: Corn and Cheddar Muffins

Ah, summer. The heat doesn't stop me from baking, but it does make me think about seasonal ingredients. The farmers' market is bursting with fresh produce but it's hard to translate some of them into bread. What about corn, you say? Throw some fresh corn along with the cornmeal into the muffin batter.
