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.

    • Boost flavor minus the heft with button mushrooms! Coming in at just 18.5 cals per serving, these umami bombs are every dieter's BFF. Plus, they offer up 15 percent of your daily recommended intake of vitamin B3, niacin, which promotes healthy skin and digestion. Not too shabby!

#Repost @very_derlicious My latest lunch go-to 🍄Marinated these in some lemon juice, salt, pepper, dill, and broth that I had leftover. Then I pan roasted them on a cast iron skillet for 2 min on the stem side and 5 with the top side down. Not sure the flavors held on enough to make the waiting time and extra dishes for marinating worth it... So the next time I did just the mushrooms by themselves and they were 🤗😋 For lunch I put them on salads or eat them with a little cheese and some sides
