Cheese & Bread Pairing
Here’s a simple guide on how to select cheeses for your sandwich.
American Cheese – A gooey, not too sharp American Cheese is perfect for grilled sandwiches. Grilled cheese sandwiches are a great way to use up day-old bread.
Cheddar – The tangy taste of cheddar goes well with the sweeter notes of white bread. Cheddar is also great for grilled sandwiches and paninis.
Mozzarella – The grainy, nutty taste of wholemeal bread goes well with Mozzarella. Top it with tomatoes, basil and olive oil to create a great-tasting, healthy sandwich.
Emmental – This cheese has a certain sweetness, so it goes well in deli meat sandwiches. You can also grate it with Cheddar for use in grilled sandwiches.
Roquefort & Gorgonzola – Blue cheese have a distinctive taste and goes well with grilled steak or chicken sandwiches. If you’re a vegetarian, try it with a grilled portobello mushroom.
Parmigiano-Reggiano – This is a hard cheese generally grated on salads and pastas. This is a great addition to meatball sandwiches or marinara spreads.
Camembert – A soft, creamy cheese that is wonderful for sandwiches. Pan-fry or toast your bread to add texture. We recommend using a thick slice bread like Toastie to create a better bite.
Feta – This cheese is crumbly and has a briny taste to it which goes well with vegetables. Pair it with lettuce, avocado, tomatoes, cucumbers and onions to create a nutrition packed sandwich.
Gouda – A semi-hard cheese that can be eaten melted or as is. Young, pre-sliced gouda is best for sandwiches.
Halloumi – A semi-hard cheese that is a great substitute for meat. Grilled halloumi with vegetables make a good vegetarian sandwich.
