To celebrate the launch of Worthy Farm Reserve Cheddar across Co-op stores, we’ve rounded up our easiest, cheesiest recipes.

Glastonbury Festival may be cancelled this year (sigh), but you can still get your hands on a piece of the festival. Co-op is launching an exclusive Cheddar made from the milk produced on Worthy Farm, the home of Glastonbury Festival.

This unique and delicious cheese will be available in Co-op stores from 17 February, so to whet your appetite, here’s a round-up of our very best recipes with cheese. Prepare for plenty of comforting ideas with goat’s cheese, halloumi, mozzarella, parmesan, cream cheese and, of course, Cheddar. Enjoy! 

10 best easy, cheesy recipes

1. Beer cheese dipping bowl

The serving bowl is made from sourdough bread, and filled with a pool of melted cheese… yep, this decadent sharer has our name all over it.

2. Cauliflower & broccoli cheese bake

Use cauliflower and broccoli in this twist on the cheesy bake for a splash of extra colour. You can’t beat it.

3. Cheese & thyme biscuits

These crumbly, buttery cheese biscuits are fantastic with a spoonful of Co-op Irresistible Caramelised Red Onion Chutney. Or, they’d make a thoughtful edible gift for one of your cheese-loving friends.

4. Halloumi curry

If you’ve never tried halloumi in a curry before, you’re missing a trick. Its fantastically salty flavour seasons the coconut curry sauce in this easy recipe. Give it a try!

5. Ultimate garlic bread

Have you ever seen a sight so beautiful?  This gloriously crisp loaf is stuffed with mozzarella, garlic butter and parsley, then sprinkled with parmesan to achieve that golden, crunchy topping. Tear and share with loved ones for a guaranteed good time.

6. Macaroni cheese

Macaroni cheese makes a reliable recipe when your fridge is looking a little bare but you’re in need of a fill-me-up dinner. It’s a brilliant budget option, too: a basic mac ‘n’ cheese recipe requires little more than pasta, cheese, milk and flour. We’ve added leeks and juicy tomatoes to our version for extra colour and flavour, but feel free to tweak as you please.

Not what you’re after? We have plenty more macaroni cheese recipes to choose from.

7. Cheese & veg pasties

These are probably the easiest pasties you’ll ever make – all they need is 30 minutes to prepare and bake! Grab a pack of Co-op ready-rolled shortcrust pastry and get to work.

8. Cheese & bacon sourdough bread pudding

A fantastic recipe for using up leftover cheese, this easy cheese and bacon bread pudding is perfect for brunch, lunch or dinner.

9. Pea & goat’s cheese sheet pan eggs

No, we haven’t forgotten to include goat’s cheese. This tangy, salty cheese adds creamy richness to these gorgeously green pea and courgette baked eggs.

10. Cheese rolls

 The smell of these cheese rolls as they bake in the oven is enough to get your tummy growling. They do take a little extra time to prepare, but the results are utterly worth it.

Still hungry? Discover more cheese recipes including a cracker crust quiche, a loaded nacho sandwich and a one-pan pizza pancake!

Worthy Farm Reserve Cheddar will be available in Co-op stores from 17 February – find your local store and make sure to pick up a pack.
