My fav is cheesy jalapeno cheddar grits. I never thought I would be so impressed with this dish.... I fix it about once a week and the leftovers are wonderful!!!

I cut this recipe in half for 2 folks:

Grits:

1 cup grits
4 cups water or stock
salt

Cook grits till creamy. 20 minutes for traditional grits, 4 for instant.

Add to cooked grits:

1 stick of butter
1 or 2 diced jalapenos (habaneros and serranos work great)
2 cups grated cheddar cheese (I use sharp)
3 eggs beaten and tempered
fresh cracked pepper
1 T chopped cilantro (optional)

I save a small bit of the cheddar cheese to sprinkle on top before baking.

Pour into a baking dish and cook for 35 minutes at 350. To brown the top, turn to broil for last few minutes of baking.

My gosh, cheese is my favorite food and can be used in most foods.

Except seafood, just don't know of many seafoods that go well with cheese, it can be used in almost any dish.

Eggs, sure. The frittata, scrambled eggs, or the omelet. Or the souffle, a cheese souffle is an item of beauty.

But toss it on chili, on a hot dog, make a Yorkshire buck or a Welsh rarebit, or mix some with the fixin's for a meatloaf, or put it in a salad. And of course with pasta. The list is endless.

And one can change the entire taste of a dish depending upon the cheese used.

Toss some gorgonzola into a salad and it will be a lot different than if one adds feta (love them both).

Or the simple grilled cheese sandwich. Can anything be better with some hearty tomato soup on a cold evening?

Cheese recipes, I am afraid I have none and have a kazillion. Will add a cheese to almost anything, except, again, for most seafood. Just can't merge the two successfully.

Anyway, there will be a lot more folks along to get specific I would guess.

Take care and God bless.

Cream cheese - cheese cake
Cheddar - baked dishes
Mozzarella - pizzas

Either homemade ravioli or lasagna....

or...cheese dumplings in wonton wrappers

or...Canoli

or...cheesecake

or...cassata cake.....

Or just a real good quality cheddar directly from vermont with pretzels right off the steet vendor's cart.

Or a goat cheese and strawberry omelet.

Or an apple cheddar omelet.

Or layered between grilled vegetables for a napolean

Or sprinkled on polenta..

Too many, way too many

Mac & Cheese! I forgot that. I use enough cheese in mac and cheese that every mouse in a 10 mile radius has to go on rations for a month.

I never did care much for cheese with seafood, with the exception of a bit of ricotta on a seafood pizza.
