When the days get shorter and colder, it's only natural to crave comfort food. There's nothing that says "let's get cozy" like a dish that's stuffed with cheese. Here are some of our top-rated cheese-stuffed recipes, with some tips and tricks on the best ways to tuck cheddar, gorgonzola, feta and the like into chicken, mushrooms, steak and more.
The Perfect Meaty Combo
There are endless reasons to love chicken, and at the top of that long list is that it's the perfect platform for showing off bold flavors and gooey textures. Raise your drumstick if you agree after trying one of these winner/winner chicken dinners.
Pro tip: For a tangy flavor, look for imported feta cheese. It's typically made from sheep's milk, which has a higher fat content, giving it an extra rich quality.
