10 Insanely Delicious Cheese Recipes

A life without cheese is a sad life indeed. Whether it's the side dish, main feature, or just the cherry on top of the cake, there's no denying that a little bit – or even better, a whole bunch – of cheese makes every dish better. If you want to add more flavor to your life, start with our 10 cheesiest recipes!

1. Layered Deep Dish Pizza Cake

If you absolutely had to decide between pizza or cake, which would you choose? It’s almost like being asked to choose between peanut and jelly – SPOILER ALERT: they go better together! With this recipe, you can combine two ideas, creating a whole new spin on the pizza "slice." You can find the full recipe & instructions here.

2. Cheesy Chicken Parmesan

Some people will have you think that the three most important words in the English language are: "I love you." Wrong. They're actually: "Stuffed with cheese." This cordon bleu meets schnitzel meets chicken parmigiana dish is the recipe you've been waiting for your entire life, and it's entirely possible you'll find yourself uttering those other three little words to your plate once this comes out of the oven. You can find the full recipe & instructions here.

3. Chicken Alfredo Garlic Roll

For some, the following recipe may seem like a rather pointless exercise which involves "hiding" the chicken alfredo goodness inside a loaf of sliced bread. But others will see the bread as the perfect base for creating a culinary delight that's great for sharing. If you happen to fall into the former category, we're now going to try our best to win you over with a delicious dish that's hard to resist. You can find the full recipe & instructions here.

4. Cheesy Bread in a Can

Three cowboys can be seen in the flickering glow of the camp fire. On a starry night in the Rocky Mountains, the silence is broken only by intermittent snorting from the horses in the background. Hungry from a tough day in the heat, the men decide it's time to take out their provisions from their packs. The aromas are wonderful, the taste sublime! You can find the full recipe & instructions here.

5. Giant Stuffed Mushrooms

Though mushrooms may not have the best reputation, we bet the skeptics among you will give them a second chance after checking out this recipe. As with any food, it's all about the preparation, and our recipe combines the wonderfully dense meatiness of the mushroom with a delicious creamy filling. Trust us — this dish will convert you from a mushroom hater to a mushroom lover! You can find the full recipe & instructions here.

6. Mac & Cheese Wellington

One of the United States' most popular fast food dishes has finally made its way over to Europe. After its trip across the Atlantic, our macaroni and cheese has come "dressed" differently though — it's wearing a British wellington jacket to stave off the cold! Here at Scrumdiddlyumptious, we have an excellent track record when it comes to fusion food, so we hope this tasty Anglo-American combination is to your liking. You can find the full recipe & instructions here.

7. Mashed Potato Pizza Roll

Potatoes and pizza are as good a match as polar bears in the Sahara, right? Wrong! These two foods actually complement each other very well when they're prepared properly. If you're still not convinced, then you should give our delicious potato pizza roll a try — it's a hearty and simple recipe that combines the best aspects of German and Italian cuisine. Let's get cooking! You can find the full recipe & instructions here.

8. Bacon & Cheese Surprise

We all know it's what's inside that counts. But with this tasty treat that's not the whole story, because it comes with an enticing bacon topping as well. Having said that, the baked pastry ring still has something special within — both inside the pastry and inside the circle! You can find the full recipe & instructions here.

9. Scalloped Potato Roll

Potatoes make the perfect side dish, especially since there are so many different ways to make them, although baked potatoes and scalloped potatoes tend to be some of the most popular choices. But jacket potatoes and potatoes au gratin, as our friends across the pond call them, have been done to death, and while it's always nice to have the classics to fall back on, sometimes you just want to try something new and exciting. That's where this stuffed scalloped potato roll comes in! You can find the full recipe & instructions here.

10. Cauliflower Beef Island

Many myths and legends often involve a mysterious island surrounded by treacherous seas. The origin of this recipe is lost somewhere in the mists of time, but our Cauliflower Island in béchamel sauce is much more welcoming — both on first viewing and when you cut into it. You can find the full recipe & instructions here.

If you want to take a dish from good to great, just remember: Never forget the cheese and don't sleep on the Gouda!
