WOW your guests with mind-blowing cheddar 4th of July recipes!

4th of JulyAs well as being an important date in celebrating US independence, 4th of July is also a great foodie day! Independence Day parties are a great excuse to get creative in the kitchen with some fun and mouth-watering 4th of July recipes!

One ingredient which provides gorgeous taste, texture as well as versatility is of course none other than cheddar cheese!

These 4th of July recipes are sure to achieve a jaw-dropping effect with your party guests!

Why not get our Westminster Cheddar involved?


Cheddar Cheese Apple Pie

Sounds a bit mad, and it is… but sharp cheddar cheese and sweet-tart apples happen to be a match made in heaven! And what’s a better way to celebrate America than with a traditional American dish – with an added cheesey twist?!


Killer Mac ‘n’ Cheese

Yes, the classic American dish can indeed be ‘mind-blowing’, but only if you get creative! This recipe is super cheesy (the more cheddar cheese you add the better it’s going to be!), and is flavoured with ingredients such as bay leaves, garlic, tomatoes, fresh thyme, Worcestershire sauce and nutmeg – it’s bound to be a taste explosion!


Cheddar Cheecheese fondue se Fondue 

Rich, creamy and everything you want for that casual Independence Day dinner party! Easy to make, tasty to eat and fun to dip!

This is a cheddar-lover’s dream!


American Flag Pizza with Bacon

Now this recipe really has the ‘wow’ factor. Why not bake a rectangular pizza and use bacon for the ‘red’, mozzarella and cheddar cheese (for that beautiful sharp taste!) for the ‘white’, and blue corn tortilla chips for the ‘blue’! Food can’t get anymore patriotic! It’s the perfect 4th of July recipe!


Cheddar Cheese Muffins 

These could be a good one for an Independence Day breakfast, although it’s such a versatile recipe! With 3/4 cup of grated sharp cheddar, these muffins are mega cheesy, just what we like!


Cheddar Cheese Sauce

This is a super easy, super quick recipe if you’re wanting the perfect cheese sauce as nacho topping or simply as a dip for all your savoury favourites! This is perfect for those buffet-style appetizers that 4th July parties are all about!


Garlic Cheddar Cheese Chickenchicken

Crunchy, cheesy and utterly delicious, this easy recipe is destined to please the taste buds of your party guests, with a rich, full flavour cooked to perfection!

Get cooking!



Cheddar Walnut Crisps

A great recipe for party snacks, these cheddar cheese walnut crisps can be made in less than 10 minutes. Why not impress your guests by telling them that even the chips have been homemade. It’s so easy!


Cheddar Apple Slaw

This sensational slaw recipe is a must-make for your 4th of July party! Apple and cheddar again join forces to create a flavour-explosion! Again, it’s another quick, easy thing to make that your guests will be surprised to learn to made yourself!
