1 Mozzarella Sticks Recipe 


There are misconceptions about these cheese sticks: it's hard to make and it's tricky, too. That's not so because there is a way to make sure that these cheese sticks are the most stretchy and crunchy sticks you've ever eaten. The trick? It's all about freezing or even just simply chilling the cheese before frying so it stays cold enough to handle the heat but thaws just enough to be melty as you bite into it. 

The trick to the perfect mozzarella stick? Freeze it overnight so it doesn't fall apart in the fryer.

3 Broccoli Cream Cheese Penne Recipe 

This recipe has two things going for it: cream cheese and pasta. You can decide to disregard the broccoli and swap it out for another vegetable you like better. You can even substitute the fancy prosciutto for bacon and still get the creamy goodness that is the cream cheese sauce this pasta is coated in. So, just to make it a little different, we think you should decide to make this recipe as is and find out how delicious cheese and broccoli can be together.

10 Blue Cheese Stroganoff Recipe 


A beef stroganoff recipe is a simple beef dish in a creamy mushroom sauce. This is usually served on top of buttered noodles or rice. That in itself is delicious! Since it's a highly creamy sauce already, it's easy to update the flavor into one that is also cheesy. Here, blue cheese is added to the sauce to give it a flavor that's unlike the original recipe. Changing the cheese you melt into the cream can easily make it into the cheddar, Parmesan, or even the four-cheese sauce sensation you've been dreaming about.

11 Ham and Cheese Dumplings Recipe 


Chinese dishes are not known to be cheesy so this easy dumpling recipe stuffed with ham and cheese is definitely a fusion recipe. Dumplings are actually easy to make. The art of wrapping the wonton wrapper isn't necessary! Sure, you can practice and pleat each one in a fancy way but even the simple tucking in of the edges until the stuffing is encased will do! Try it with this ham and cheese filling for a cheesy, melty bomb with every bite.

12 Cheesy Beef Empanada Recipe 


A savory beef empanada seems rather commonplace but it does become irresistible when you add cheese. Here's the trick: make your filling – it can be chicken, beef, pork, or even fish! – and then set it aside until completely cooled before stirring in large grated quickmelting cheese. The cool temperature of the filling will ensure that the cheese doesn't melt before its spooned onto the empanada dough and sealed shut. Deep frying these hot pockets will result in melty, beefy image you see above. 

Quickmelt cheese make these empanadas irresistible!
