Fontina, prosciutto and sage-stuffed French toast

Best cheese recipes in the world

We can’t resist cheese, whether it's by itself or oozing out of pies, with pasta, in French toast. Our fun fromage recipe collection is comfort food at its best.

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

Fontina, prosciutto and sage-stuffed French toast

Courgette mac ‘n’ cheese with garlic sourdough crumbs

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.

Triple cheese crumpets

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!

Spiced corn on the cob

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.

California grilled reuben

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.

Grilled cheese eggy bread

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.
