This recipe is a labour of love, but so worth it. We’re talking a whole baked brie wrapped in crisp, golden brioche and prosciutto. The recipe officially serves eight, but we’re not sure we’re that generous…
Turns out it is possible to build on the magnificent bedrock that is pommes dauphinoise – just add cheese to the power of three. We’ve supplemented the traditional gruyère with parmesan and untraditional cheddar.
Call off the search: we’ve found the best hybrid recipe of all time. This puff pastry pie neatly fuses tartiflette, fondue and baked camembert. It’s served with a tangy chicory salad as a foil for all that dairy.
Whether you make it on the hob or serve it in a little alpine-style pot by candlelight, we can’t find anything we don’t like about fondue. This medley contains four different cheeses, making it an ideal receptacle for odds and ends of cheeseboard leftovers.
Tartiflette is a rib-sticking dish from the French Alps that’s made from potatoes, Reblochon cheese, lardons and onions. Add to the mix a grating of nutmeg dry white wine and this becomes a next level potato dish.

Banish all notions of macaroni in a tin – this pasta bake has gone high-end, with many restaurants now offering ultra-luxe versions of it. We did a forensic comb of all the mac ‘n’ cheese recipes on our site and discovered this one contains the most cheese per serving. You’re welcome.
The trick to giving these après-ski-worthy spuds real wow-factor is choosing a good European melting cheese, like Reblochon, raclette or gruyère. The subtle nuttiness of the cheese combined with salty bacon, double cream and parsley is nothing short of miraculous.
Whether you’re talking rarebit, croque-madame or a good old-fashioned panini, the combination of melted cheese and toasted bread will never get old. Our favourite way to take a toastie up a notch is to pan-fry it, with a secret ingredient spread on the outside of the bread to give it a golden, crispy finish: mayonnaise. In this recipe, we’ve added kimchi to the mix, providing a welcome spicy-sour tang. The Korean fermented cabbage is a favourite ingredient of ours, and it’s especially good in this toastie.

The sight of a melted whole camembert straight from the oven is enough to make us swoop like starved vultures, so this breadstick creation is enough to give us palpitations. Each stick is wrapped in crisp pancetta, too.
Try swapping the meat sauce in a traditional lasagne for sausage meatballs in this epic three-cheese meatball lasagne. This twist on lasagne features a generous helping of mozzarella, parmesan and cheddar, which is baked until bubbling and golden, with lots of crisp cheesy bits around the edge. Cheese heaven!
