Remember when the Atkins diet was a thing? Carbohydrates were the enemy. No bread, no pasta, no rice. These days, it seems like diary is the new diet enemy. But we love cheese! In fact, there are many benefits to consuming cheese. It’s a great source of calcium, fat and protein. It also contains high amounts of vitamins A and B12, along with zinc, phosphorus, and riboflavin.
Thankfully, there is a day to celebrate cheese!
National Cheese Day is Saturday, June 4! We are sharing three amazing cheesy recipes from TheSoul Publishing – the publisher behind one of the top five YouTube channels, 5-Minute Crafts (which has 69M subscribers and 140M+ followers across Facebook and Instagram).
Check out these recipes to celebrate the cheesy holiday.
Instant Mug Mac N Cheese: If you are at work or would like to have macaroni and cheese as a snack instead of making a huge pot of food. Try this little trick that will literally take you 3 minutes to make this meal. In a mug, add a scoop of pasta, then, add the adequate amount of water and microwave for 2 minutes. Stir it well and make sure there is no more water left in the mug. Then, add some milk and cheese and stir until the cheese into the mug and Bon Appetite!
Grilled Cheese Hack: If you would like to have a nice grilled cheese fast but you don’t own a grill, don’t let that stop you. Apply some butter on a slice of bread on both sides, then, add two slices of cheddar cheese and then another slice of bread with butter spread on it. Then, place your sandwich in a kitchen foil and seal it. After that, take your clothing iron and place it on top of the sandwich for a couple of minutes max, then turn it and press the other side as well with your clothing iron and, there you have it!
DIY Cheese Sticks: If you’re a cheese lover, this hack is for you. Take a block of cheddar cheese and cut it in rectangular blocks. Place one wooden stick in each block. Then, dip it into flour, after that dip it into an egg wash, and finally in breadcrumbs. Lastly, boil some oil and fry your cheesy sticks. Enjoy with some ketchup or the sauce of your choice!
