Broaden Your Horizons And Use Shredded Cheese In These Five Different Ways!


Since I have started cooking, shredded cheese is a fixture in my refrigerator.  Shredded cheese is my go-to ingredient, even if I am in the worst mood, give me some good wine, some cheese-filled appetizers, and I’m a happy lady.

Whenever people think about shredded cheese, the only things that come to their mind are pizza, tacos and something like that, but shredded cheese can make many other things.

Here are five different ways to use shredded cheese is not such a mainstream way:

Almond-Bacon Cheese Crostini

Are you bored from usually toasted tomato appetizer, try this Almond-Bacon Cheese Crostini recipe, you will love it. Almond-Bacon cheese crostini is a tasty and cheesy appetizer that is the perfect option for your movie time or match day snacks.

There is almond, cheese, hot sauce, and a heavy-handed dose of mayo. All of this gives incredible crunch and flavour to the toast.

It is super simple to make, and you need to pre-heat the oven and toast the baguette slices on both sides. Meanwhile make a mixture of onion, mayo, shredded cheese, almonds and your favourite hot sauce. Put a spoonful mixture on each toast and bake it for 5 minutes. Garnish with cilantro or green onions and serve hot.

Devilled-Egg Spread

You can serve it with toast, or tortillas, or tacos shells, that’s entirely your choice. 

Cheeseburger Quesadillas

I have not even started talking about this, and I am already drooling. If I had to eat only two dishes for my entire life that would be quesadilla and burger. So, I thought, why not merge both and make one.

This mashup is so yummy and easy to make. You need all the necessary ingredients to make a burger and replace two things – buns with tortillas and slice cheese with shredded cheese.

Start cooking the minced meat with onion and seasoning (you don’t need to make patties). Take a tortilla, spread mincemeat mixture, and top it with tomato, onion, jalapenos, shredded cheese. Cover it with another tortilla piece and bake it for 7-8 minutes, then cut and serve.

Mashed Potato Cups

I wonder if there is anyone who does not love mashed potatoes, I love them, but when making them, I always make more than I could eat. So mashed potato cups is the saviour for my leftover mashed potatoes. 

These potato cups are so simple to make, they are budget-friendly, and they taste divine. They have a crunchy crust and a creamy and flavourful filling. All you have to do is take a large bowl and add leftover potatoes, shredded cheese, eggs, chives, salt & pepper and mix well.

Then take a muffin tray and butter it, then scoop out the potato mixture, place it on the tray and finally bake it for 25 minutes.

Chili Corn Dogs

From the little kids to the oldest adults, everyone loves these chilli corn dogs.

To make chilli corn day, take a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no, 6-8 minutes; and drain the excess water. Pour in tomato sauce, water, hot sauce, onion and seasonings.

Place hot dogs in a slow cooker; top with beef mixture. Cover it and cook on low for about 4-5 hours. Serve with buns and your favourite toppings.
