Cheesy recipes for cheese lovers.

Here’s proof of how much we, as a country, adore cheese: Not only does cheese have its own national holiday (June 4), but the people who love it get their own day too—today.

1. Beer-and-Cheddar Soup 

Food & Wine:

It’s hard to go wrong with this soup. It’s extra-rich, with a meaty kick from smoky bacon.

2. Pimento-Cheese-and-Tomato Pie 

Food & Wine:

This luscious, quiche-like pie is a mash-up of two Southern favorites—tangy pimento cheese and silky tomato pie.

3. Inside-Out Grilled Ham-and-Cheese Sandwiches 

Food & Wine:

The best way to improve on a great grilled cheese is to sprinkle some cheese on the outside of the bread. It creates a super-crisp, cheesy crust.

4. Macaroni and Many Cheeses 

Food & Wine:

This recipe can be made with any semihard cheese but is particularly good with an international blend of French Mimolette, aged Dutch Gouda and American Vella dry Jack. A fine layer of Italian Parmigiano-Reggiano forms a crisp topping.

5. Three-Cheese Fondue with Pickles 

Food & Wine:

To make an especially rich and creamy fondue, add Brie to a mix of Swiss cheeses.

6. Camembert Baked in the Box 

Food & Wine:

This tender, melty cheese bakes in its box to keep it from collapsing.

7. Smoked Gouda and Cheddar Quinoa Quesadillas 

Food & Wine:

Smoky gouda, savory cheddar and hearty quinoa make for an unexpectedly amazing quesadilla filling.

8. Pimento Cheese Grits 

Food & Wine:

In this luxe side dish, Bobby Flay folds the classic ingredients of pimento cheese (cheddar cheese, cream cheese and roasted peppers) into warm, creamy grits.

9. Broccoli Cheese Dunk 

Food & Wine:

Gooey and luscious, this addictive starter is like a deconstructed broccoli quesadilla.
