As far as seafood and cheese goes I can think of seafood risotto - this is one time cheese and seafood go quite nicely together. Or an Alfredo with scallops and andouille sausage.

Take a serving size piece of kielbasa and split in half (but not all the way). Open as much as you can and top with mashed potatoes, top the mashed potatoes with LOTS of shredded cheddar cheese and bake in oven 350 degrees F. for 30 or so minutes.

Love cheese grits - it even makes those little packets of grits taste good (sort of).

As far as cheese goes, I use all different types in nearly everything & anything. I also love purchasing different varieties from well-stocked cheese counters & enjoying them on their own with crackers, fruit, & vino.

As far as my favorite dishes where cheese is the star ingredient, I'd have to say cheese fondue, & mozzarella en carrozza (the predecessor to the commercial mozzarella stick).

Honestly, among my repartoire it would be faster to count the dishes which do not contain cheeses...
We are total cheeseheads, favourite recipes using cheese would be too many to count!!

Ditto what everybody else said, cheese on {almost} everything please! But I suppose I love the best that cheese s a meal in itself with fruit or crudite and good bread or crackers and a beautiful wine, that there aasre always MORE cheeses to try. And when its miserable outside and one doesn't want to cook cheese on toast, I like it best with a generous dunking in balsamic vinegar, it always fills the gap, or my families variation, I have posted before which we call Catsick....cheese, a tin of sardines, tomato ketchup and Worcester sauce, all forked together and shoved on toast under the grill. Looks foul, tastes grerat!

Cheese......mmmmmmmmmm

My wife makes the most wonderful baked ziti. She uses her secret ingredients which includes lots of cheese, namely mozzarella and ricotta. But, boy whatever she puts in there sure makes a big difference!

Absolutely my favourite, apart from all my other favourites of course, is aubergine parmigiana with fontina cheese in the layers and parmesan on the top.

Then of course I love this souffléed macaroni cheese recipe with mascarpone, gruyere and parmesan: Souffleed Macaroni Cheese from Delia Online

And I love any Greek pie with feta cheese in.

Brie and gherkin on granary bread sandwich.

Goats cheese melted on toast served with a salad of red-tinged lettuce and sun-dried tomatoes. Dressing made of bits of bacon fried in olive oil and then turn off the flame and add balsamic vinegar to the pan while it's still warm - stand back the fumes are a bit strong when you add the vinegar.

In fact, I'd be quite happy with a recipe that consisted of a slice of cheese and a few black olives and a piece of granary bread spread with salted butter.

I'd have to go for my favourite comfort dish - Cauliflower Cheese. Cooked cauli, potato and a little onion with huge quantities of grated Farmhouse Cheddar, a pinch of nutmeg, topped with a few rounds of tomato and breadcrumbs, baked in the oven till brown.

Having said that, after yesterday's BBQ we pulled out a piece of Brie, a piece of Camembert, a Petit Livarot ( stank to high heaven!) a little Bleu d'Auvergne and some delicious goat cheese from Normandie; fresh crusty bread and butter; a glass of robust red wine. Heaven on a plate!
