Firm cheeses: Cheddar, Swiss

  • These all-around favorites are versatile for pairing with family-friendly comfort foods and melting into soups and sauces.
  • Mild Cheddar is creamy in texture because it is not aged as long as sharp Cheddar, which can be slightly crumbly.
  • Swiss cheese has a nutty, slightly sweet flavor that brings a distinctive taste to grilled cheese sandwiches and fondue.

Semi-soft cheeses: Monterey Jack, mozzarella

  • With their mild flavor and soft texture, these cheeses work best for melting into sauces and on top of baked casseroles and pastas.
  • Monterey Jack has a slightly firm texture that is similar to mild Cheddar, but creamier. It’s a staple in many Mexican-American dishes.
  • Mozzarella’s meltiness makes it a standby for Italian baked pasta dishes and pizza with any toppings you want.
