Since it”s highly concentrated, cheese is often mixed with other foods to help it go down easier. There are several ways to do this. Melting the cheese is one, while grating is another. If you decide to cook your cheese, make sure not to cook it too long, as that will make it hard and leathery.

Among the recipes out there are cheese bonbons, cheese omelettes and English monkey. American cheese is the best choice for these recipes, unless another kind is specified in the ingredients.
