Cheese is a favored staple in kitchens all over the world. Whether you melt it, grate it, or just slice it, cheese makes the best recipes even better. You may enjoy some mac and cheese for lunch or a grilled cheese for dinner, but your breakfasts and even your desserts may be missing a little bit of cheesy goodness. If you're ready to show off your devotion to this dairy product and take your love of cheese to the next level, check out these 15 life-changing cheesy recipes to get three meals a day full of cheese. 

1. Egg and Cheese Bagel Boat

Emma Henzes

Let's start with the most important meal of the day, shall we? Anyone who's anyone loves a toasty BEC, so upgrade it with ham, peppers, eggs, and mozzarella. The recipe only calls for 1/4 cup of cheese, but have it your way and add more if you want — no judgements here.

2. Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Carl Pieri

Hey, cream cheese is still cheese! And you don't need to go all the way to a bakery when you can get quality muffins at home. If you can't wait for PSL season, whip these muffins up to enjoy a sweet breakfast snack all week long. Oh, and did I mention that they're filled with a cream cheese icing? Swoon.

3. Honey Cheese Toast

If you're looking for something a little unexpected, yet upscale, try this honey cheese toast. It's simple, sweet, and is still a way to get your cheese fix. Plus, you probably have some honey sitting around in your pantry; that stuff never goes bad.

4. BLT Quesadilla

Katie Elliott

I credit a quesadilla maker for providing me with a majority of meals while my mom was at work during middle school. I'll always have a soft spot for all that melted cheese wrapped in a tortilla. Turn your love for quesadillas into a more polished and respectable meal with a BLT quesadilla. I mean, with the lettuce and tomatoes, you're technically getting a serving of fruits and veggies in.

5. Fried Pizza Poppers

Marissa Arnett

These are a major step up from freezer-aisle pizza rolls. You can fill these pizza poppers with pretty much any toppings you want (even pineapple) without having to sacrifice on all that cheesy goodness. These are even better than a regular slice for on the go eating. 

6. Crawfish Queso Dip

Move over Chipotle, there's a new queso dip in town. The beauty of this Southern-inspired queso is that you can dip tortilla chips, Ritz crackers, or even veggies in it. Yes, this should be on the table at all of your future parties, but personally, I think this also can count at lunch. 

7. Mac and Cheese Fritters

It was only a matter of time before mac and cheese made it onto this list. An absolute classic, everyone loves mac and cheese — boxed or homemade. The only way to possibly make it better is to deep fry it, amIrite? But, if you don't have a deep fryer on hand, follow this Spoon recipe and pan fry these bites.

8. Cheese-Encrusted Grilled Cheese

Your arteries may be unhappy with you, but your taste buds will be singing after you try this sandwich. The trick to this one is cooking the sandwich on top of a big blob of melted, crispy cheese in your frying pan. Just make sure you have some PAM on your pan so you can actually enjoy your masterpiece in one whole bite.

9. Doritos-Crusted Mozzarella Sticks

meat, chicken, sweet
Audrey Mirabito

I could probably down a whole bag of Nacho Cheese Doritos in one sitting. So, if you're anything like me, this recipe is for you. The beauty of this recipe is that it's comprised of things that are already in the typical college student's pantry: cheese sticks and chips. You can satisfy your cravings for cheese on cheese and it's cheap af. 

10. Roasted Beet Caprese

Nathalie Kent

If you want to at least make the effort to be healthy after downing a bunch of grilled cheese sandwiches, try some roasted beet caprese. The mozzarella still gets you your cheese fix, but the sweetness of the beets will be a nice change of pace from the usual tomatoes. This dish has "summer garden party" written all over it.

11. Burrata Caprese Toast

sweet, vegetable, bread
Max Bartick

Burrata is hot right now, and it's easy to see why. Mozzarella and cream? Yes please. Up your toast game from basic avocado to burrata with tons of colorful summer tomatoes and basil. Plus, with toppings like these, we won't judge if you end up having a whole loaf.

12. Grilled Cheese (Kylie Jenner Style)

Madelyn B Bucher

Stars — they're just like the rest of us! Or at least their food is. Kylizzle keeps her grilled cheese recipe pretty simple: sourdough bread, American cheese, salt, pepper, and hot sauce. Seems relatively tame, but hey, sometimes the simple things are all you need. Maybe it'll even make you Snapchat famous.

13. Gruyère and Apple Grilled Cheese

Jody Brimacombe

If you like your sammies a little more on the bougie side, try this upscale version complete with gruyere and apple slices. Sure, you can study abroad in France, or you could save a few thousand dollars and make this sandwich at home. Fair warning though, you'll probably have to wander the cheese aisles in Trader Joe's to get the best selection of that good good.

14. Cheeseburger Sushi

Emma Lally

Ever wonder if you could make a better bite sized version of your fave cookout fare? Cheeseburger sushi is the answer to your prayers. These snacks are mad cute, but still pack a cheesy punch. Customize these any way you want with your favorite burger toppings. If anyone needs me, I'll be loading mine with pickles.

15. Boozy Cheesecake Brownies

bacon, peanut butter, peanut, butter
Maddie Lanier

You know what's great? Brownies. You know what's also great? Cheesecake. You know what's even better? Brownies and cheesecake spiked with raspberry liqueur. If you prefer your cheese in dessert form, take these brownies for a spin. Chocolate and raspberry are such a classic combo, and when you throw cheesecake in the mix, it's almost too hot to handle. Say goodbye to the Cheesecake Factory for good (JK, we love you Cheesecake).

Cheese is one of those ingredients that you'd be hard pressed not to put in any and all of your fave recipes. Whether you're looking to add a little extra creamy goodness to your breakfast, lunch, or dinner, you can never go wrong with cheese. Get your friends ready — they're about to be treated to some major cheese-pulls on your Insta.
