It is one of the top choices when it comes to cheese as it is relatively off-white, hard, and sharp-tasting than its counterparts. Check out these five recipes using cheddar cheese.

In a frying pan, melt some butter. Toast four slices of bread on both sides until they are crisp. The next step is to layer two slices with tomatoes, onions, and lettuce. Now sprinkle some cheddar cheese on the two slices and then add some salt and pepper to taste. Top them with the other two slices and form a sandwich.
Mac and cheese
Boil macaroni in a bowl of water and olive oil. Meanwhile, prepare a cheese sauce by mixing milk, flour, and melted butter in a pan over medium flame. Stir and ensure that it doesn't turn brown. Add cheddar cheese to this mixture and whisk until it has melted. Combine the sauce and macaroni, and add salt and pepper. Bake and dig in.
