Cheddar Cheese Appreciation Recipes
All Things Cheddar Cheese
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.
Turkish Cheese Biscuits/Cookies
Try my version of Turkish savoury biscuits, with cheese in the dough. These are perfect for pairing with your favourite cheese, but equally good snacked on alone.
Cheese Pastry Twists
Here’s my quick and simple recipe for making Cheese Pastry Twists, using shop-bought puff pastry. Filled with Extra Mature Cheese/Extra Sharp Cheddar cheese.
A perfect, quick bake, great for entertaining & sure to please your guests. No prior baking knowledge or experience required!
Easy Peasy Smokin’ Cheezee Squares
Here’s my quick to prepare savoury snack – Easy Peasy Smokin’ Cheezee Squares! Not quite pastry, not quite a cracker, these cheesy snacks are great for entertaining, gifting or nibbling on movie night. Made using extra mature/extra sharp cheddar cheese these are very addictive! Bonus spicy vrsion too.
Speedy Cheese Swirls
Speedy Cheese Swirls, are an easy, yeast-free cheesy snack, that’s ideal for entertaining. No prior baking experience or special ingredients or tools required.
Fill with cheddar cheese (mature/sharp is best), or even white cheese like Feta and some herbs or spring onions/scallions.
Cheese Scones – Savoury British Scones
Here’s my savoury version of our British scones. With added mature/sharp cheddar cheese these are easily transformed into a quick savoury snack.
Learn all the tips for a successful rise!
Bonus Airfryer recipe too!
Easy Cheddar Cheese & Mozzarella Muffins
Cheddar & Mozzarella Muffins are a great savoury bake, that’s not only super simple to make but perfect for a light breakfast. A great ‘hand-foot’, suitable for a picnic too.
Use extra mature or extra sharp cheddar to give a great flavour and Mozzarella to give the ‘cheesy stretch’!
90 Minute Cheese Pizza (White or Wholemeal Flour)
Here’s my popular pizza recipe, using the quicker method for working with yeast dough. It can be made with partly wholemeal flour, or 100% white flour & can be used to make thin or deep crust. Topped with home-made tomato sauce and of course mature/sharp cheddar. Add other toppings but don’t forget the cheddar for added flavour.
Easy Tear-&-Share Cheese Scones
New to baking? Or not successful with British scones? Then try my easy, Tear-&-Share Cheese Scones. Full of flavour from the cheddar cheese, these are so easy kids can make them.
30 Minute Yeast-free Cheesy Bread
Another recipe for new bakers, is my yeast-free, quick an easy, 30 minute cheesy bread. As easy as making a basic bake, this savoury treat is full of flavour from the mature/sharp cheddar, and perfect to accompany a meal.

Things To Go With The Cheese
Quicker Tear-&-Share Dinner Rolls
Finally, here is somethings to go with your cheddar cheese and other favourite fillings. My quicker tear-&-share dinner rolls use a different technique in handling the yeast dough, making them quicker to make.
Below are some pics of more suggestions for great pairings with cheese. Savoury Turkish Cheese Biscuits (which you can have with cheese, or add some to the dough). Roasted Salted Smoked Paprika Almonds are great with cheese and drinks. Add some favourite seasonings and Roast Pumpkin Seeds. And finally, a quick cheesy puff pastry swirls recipe, that is originally made using Turkish white cheese (Peynir), but can also be made with any hard cheese that doesn’t leak out too much on baking. Check my Bread & Rolls page for more inspiration.
