Whether you prefer it white or yellow, mild, sharp, or extra-sharp, there are several wonderful ways to savor the flavors of cheddar cheese.
Cheddar cheese is delectable in the kitchen in part because it mixes in so well with so many other ingredients. Whether you love it in Bacon-and-Cheddar Grits, or prefer its unique tastes in Pear-Rosemary Pie with Cheddar Crust, the key is the slightly salty and sometimes sharp—you choose the level—taste of this distinctive cheese. If you’d prefer the simplicity of cheddar cheese as finger food, Turkey-Cheddar Kabobs with Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce is perfect.
It balances the tender taste of moist turkey with the bite of cheddar cheese. And, for a true classic, you can’t go past how important this cheese is in a dish like Neiman Marcus Cheddar Cheese Biscuits. So whether you prefer your cheddar standard (meaning yellow,) or think white cheddar is the way to go, this cheese is versatile. And, let’s face it; you can’t make Pimiento Cheese without it. That in itself is enough to make it a revered cheese in the South. Spread some on a sandwich and you’ll understand why.
