From a heavenly grilled cheese to a buttery cheesecake to amazing cheese-soaked fries, we can't get enough of the gooey offerings below. Here are seven scrumptious ways to get more cheese into your life, morning to night.
Canadian Cracker at DirtCandy, New York City
Chef Amanda Cohen's groundbreaking vegetarian restaurant Dirt Candy in New York puts cheese front and center with its Canadian Cracker. The irresistibly melty dish is made with fluffy waffles topped with eggs and endless amounts of cheddar cheese.
Grilled Cheese at Beer Belly, Los Angeles
Hit the cheese quad-fecta (cheddar, gruyere, goat and Italian cow's-milk Asiago) with the grilled cheese sandwich at L.A.’s Beer Belly. The Koreatown gastropub adds applewood smoked bacon and maple syrup for a splurge-worthy sweet and savory treat.
Burrata at Tavolata, Seattle
What's better than a hunk of cheese? Especially when it’s fresh Italian Burrata with an elegant topping of apple, shallot and fresh anchovies. Dig in at Tavolata in Seattle, where you can spread the insanely creamy cheese on crunchy crostini. Photo courtesy of Tavolata Facebook.
Khachapuri at Compass Rose, D.C.
D.C.'s Compass Rose goes above and beyond with its extra-cheesy khachapuri. A combination of eggs, butter and cheese comes tucked inside a cheese-bread bowl, oozing lusciousness with every bite. Photo courtesy of Compass Rose Facebook.
Fromage Blanc Cheesecake at Lafayette, New York City
As if cheese alone didn't already pique our interest, New York City's Lafayette—from star chef and Top Chef Season 11 guest Andrew Carmellini—seals the deal with its fromage blanc cheesecake. Fromage blanc and cream cheese meet a vanilla bean, lemon zest and black pepper filling; the dessert is baked with an organic cornmeal crust and topped with seasonal fruit. Bonus: Upon request, pastry chef Jennifer Yee will turn the cheesecake into a tiered wedding cake. Photo by Noah Fecks.

French Onion Soup at Le Zoo, Miami
Le Zoo in Miami serves up its extra-flavorful French onion soup no matter what the temperature is like outside. Gruyere, provolone and Parmesan are joined by a toasted baguette crouton—and, in a house twist, the French brasserie makes the soup with a flavorful veal broth base.
