We love food holidays here at Forkly, and there are lots of reasons why Cheese Lover’s Day is one of our absolute favorites. Did you know that the average American eats 31 pounds of cheese each year? Amazing, right? Any food that we eat that regularly surely deserves its own day of the year to celebrate it. We scoured the web yesterday and found ourselves inspired by the huge number of delicious recipes containing a variety of different cheeses. So, take a look at these six dishes below that we have chosen as our favorites — you can visit the sites corresponding with each image number to grab the recipes for each of these tasty creations. Enjoy!


1 – This dish is a Beer & Cheese Macaroni created by the foodies over at Homemade by Holman. They used smoked cheddar, sharp white cheddar, mild cheddar, and American cheese, along with 1 cup of Sam Adams Oktoberfest beer, to create this delicious looking cheese dish.

2 – Caramelized Cheese Grilled Cheese? Okay, you got our mouths drooling! The folks at Closet Cooking came up with this delicious looking dish that takes grilled cheese to another level. Why would you want a simple grilled cheese ever again after seeing this?

3 – These Italian Cheese Straws were discovered at What’s Cookin’ Chicago and just had to be a part of this list. These would work well as an appetizer or a side dish to pretty much any kind of soup you could imagine.

4 – Baked macaroni and cheese is probably in my top five favorite dishes, so we had to include one of these in our list. The most delicious baked macaroni dish we could find was found over at MarthaStewart.com — a macaroni dish featuring Beecher’s flagship cheese sauce that looks phenomenal.

5 – This grilled cheese sandwich made with a pita was found over at GrilledCheeseSocial.com and was affectionately named the “Old Goat” because… well, you guessed it — it contains goat cheese! Alongside peppers and mushrooms, this goat cheese grilled cheese sandwich has a real artisan feel that adds a level of class to the classic grilled cheese dish. We would love to try this one!

6 – We found a great cheese appetizer over at BHG.com that is as simple to make as it looks. These cheese triangles would be an excellent appetizer and would be sure to put a smile on the face of any guest you have over.
