Preparation, Uses, & Tips

Cheddar is an immensely popular snack cheese, enjoyed with bread or crackers, apples or pears, in sandwiches and on hamburgers, and accompanying apple pie. Grated, it appears in a wide range of baked goods (such as cheese biscuits and muffins), as an accompaniment to salads, and as a topping on French onion soup; in casseroles (from informal dishes such as macaroni and cheese to elegant soufflés); and in regional potato, pasta, and rice dishes, such as rice with peppers and stuffed peppers. Cheddar also combines well with Parmesan.
