Select sharp cheddar when using packaged shredded cheese from recipes that you’d like to have a bolder flavor. If you will be shredding cheese at home from bulk cheddar, you can choose from mild, medium, sharp and extra sharp.
It's tempting to seek out new flavors when baking chicken, but then again, with bacon, barbecue sauce and cheddar cheese so easy to grab from the fridge, why linger in doubt? Pull out this combination the next time you get the "what's for dinner" text. —Brenda Coleman, Jackson, Alabama
This great-tasting fondue is my mom's favorite, so I make it for her birthday every year. I like to serve it with apple slices, rye bread cubes and chunks of carrots, mushrooms, celery, zucchini, squash and broccoli. —Amanda Wentz, Virginia Beach, Virginia
“This family favorite is a great treat on chilly nights. It’s warming and has so much flavor in every bite. I like to serve it with a tossed salad and rolls.”
