Cheddar Cheese Appreciation Recipes

All Things Cheddar Cheese

By Caro

This is my post for Cheddar Cheese Appreciation.  One-stop article of cheesy and easy, cheese filled bakes!  Great for entertaining or just snacking.

Cheddar Lovers’ Day!

This page was inspired by Cheddar Lovers’ Day! Yes there’s such a thing! It happens on the 13th February 2022 and since I have a lot of bakes using cheddar cheese, I thought it ideal to group some recipes together in one place. You can of course search in the site for cheese, but more than cheddar cheese will come up.

Quicker Turkish Cheese Filled Rolls -Poğaça

These quicker Turkish cheese filled rolls – (Poğaça), are my version of this popular bake, still yeast-based, but using a slightly different technique to speed up the process.

Classic versions are filled with Turkish white cheese (peynir) and flat leaf parsley (maydanoz), but I also make my Scottish version, filled with Scottish extra mature (sharp) cheddar cheese and onion.
