45 meltingly good cheese recipes

Bubble, crumb, melt, spread, sprinkle: cheese is perhaps the most multi-talented of all ingredients. It can be that final touch that finishes off the dish or it can be the star of the show. Cheese can fit in anywhere, anytime, from a rugby game with the guys or dvd time with the girls to a gourmet dinner date or a Sunday morning family breakfast.
