    12 Surprisingly Delicious Ways To Cook With Cheese

    These are some ~grate~ ideas!

    1. Grill soft rined cheeses like Brie and Camembert to make a warm and melted appetizer.

    2. Or grill non-melting cheeses for a quick main course.

    Cheeses such as halloumi, panela, and some provolones can be grilled without turning into a melted mess (even without the protection of a rind). Get the recipe for this grilled halloumi sandwich here.

    3. Make aligot (aka the cheesiest mashed potatoes you can imagine).
