Celebrate National Cheese Lovers Day with ’Shrooms

January 12, 2018

Ahh cheese. One of the greatest foods known to man (along with mushrooms, of course). Do you know anyone who doesn’t like cheese? Probably not. In fact, people love cheese so much, it has its own holiday. (Though if you’re like us, you try to celebrate cheese on a daily basis.) Even our vegan and lactose-intolerant friends have found a way to enjoy dairy-free cheese – because everyone.loves.cheese.

January 20th is National Cheese Lovers Day, which means it’s time to celebrate our love for cheese in every form: cubed, sliced, melted and more. Make the most of this foodie holiday and throw in some mushrooms. The combination of ooey gooey gouda-ness and savory umami flavor will delight your taste buds.

Do you have a favorite cheesy mushroom dish? Share with us in the comments below! If you’re looking for inspo, we’ve got you covered. Dig into our list of the cheesiest mushroom recipes and start celebrating.

Cheese and Mushroom Recipes

Pulled Pork Mac and Cheese with Mushrooms
Classic comfort food at its finest. The question is: spirals, shells or elbow?

Pepper-Crusted Burgers Filled with Roasted Mushrooms and Swiss Cheese
Is it even a burger without cheese and mushrooms? We’ve upgraded this recipe using The Blend for an even better burger.

Mushroom, Caramelized Onion and Blue Cheese Flatbreads
Flatbreads: the cool cousin to pizza. Gather your friends for an evening of fun(gi) and cheese.

Blended Beef and Crimini Queso

Blended Beef and Crimini Queso
Nacho average queso… This dip is filled with savory beef, meaty mushrooms and creamy cheese for the ultimate flavor experience.

Artichoke, Spinach and Goat Cheese-Stuffed Mushrooms
Artichoke-spinach dip INSIDE of a mushroom. It’s enough to make you drool just reading about it.

Blended Tater Tot Casserole
Just like Mom used to make! This dinner recipe is easy and cheesy. (Tip: add in additional vegetables to bulk this casserole up!)
