We are major cheese fiends at olive, so we have a fair few cheese recipes. Make pies oozing with brie, mac ‘n’ cheese laden with crisp bacon and Red Leicester or toasties stuffed with Fontina. Baked camembert is a simple way to feed a crowd…
Mac ‘n’ cheese with bacon
An overwhelmingly cheesy pasta bake that’s rich with Red Leicester and crispy bacon pieces, finished off with a crunchy breadcrumb topping. Guaranteed to make you grin from ear to ear.
Baked brie in puff pastry
Cut into a golden puff pastry shell and watch the baked brie spill out. Topped with chutney, it’s a surefire crowd pleaser.
Fontina, prosciutto and sage-stuffed French toast
Our favourite cheesy recipe ever. Nothing beats a crisp golden toastie with melted cheese and salty prosciutto. Irresistible.
There’s no holding back in this indulgent recipe for crispy sourdough dipped in molten French cheese with almondy biscuit crumbs and crunchy toasted pecans. Make if for a festive gathering or warming winter treat
In the US, mac ‘n’ cheese often, on a menu, has its own heading with a choice of flavourings. Courgette and garlicky crumbs get our vote. This recipe is easy but super comforting.
How do you make fresh crumpets taste even better? Add three types of cheese, a teaspoon of mustard powder and slather on a good helping of butter of course!
This recipe for spiced corn on the cob is based on a grilled Mexican street snack but gets a bump of flavour from punchy Korean gochuchang sauce. If you can’t find it, use any garlicky chilli sauce. It’s a great way to pep-up sweetcorn for your next barbecue.
This West Coast version of a deli sandwich uses smoked turkey rather than pastrami. This makes more coleslaw than you’ll need for the sandwiches but it’ll keep for 2-3 days in the fridge.
Give our tear-and-share gooey cheese-filled dough balls a go at home with step-by-step help from the olive test kitchen. They’d make a great starter for the kids or something to kick off a laid back dinner party

Not strictly authentic, but we love cheese naan bread at olive. This recipe takes it to the next level, using two different cheeses and adding a kick of chilli. They look and taste great, but are easy to make, thanks to step-by-step help from olive’s test kitchen.
Grilled cheese is one of the most comforting, healing dishes out there and only uses a few ingredients. The same applies for eggy bread, so it made sense to Dan Doherty to combine them. Eat for breakfast, lunch or dinner, though maybe not every day.
Prepare your dough beforehand to make this easy Brooklyn-style smoky sausage and crispy kale pizza. It’s packed full of flavour and, as soon as your dough is risen and ready, it only takes 45 minutes to bake – perfect mid-week cheesy comfort food! Check out our other cheesy pizza recipes here
Fill mushrooms with a creamy spring onion filling, and top with a circle of goats’ cheese. Grill until golden. Never has something so easy tasted so good.
