6 Manchego Cheese Recipes to Try Making at Home
Whether you fell in love with Manchego cheese on your last trip to Spain, or have some leftover from your fancy cheese party, I’m guessing you’re here because you have no idea what to do with it.
In Spain, Manchego is commonly served as a table cheese – and I can attest that nibbling a few gorgeous triangles of slightly crystallized manchego curado over drinks, while overlooking some gorgeous square in Barcelona or Valencia is an excellent way to spend a late afternoon.
But what exactly do you do with it in your kitchen? Well…that’s a whole other ball game.
With a complex taste that’s at times nutty, sweet, and milky, I totally get feeling intimidated by Manchego.
As it happens, though, Manchego works great across a range of recipes, from appetizers or tapas, to mains like creamy risotto or pasta, and even pastry.
If you’re wondering what to do with that hunk of manchego in your fridge, we’ve got you covered. I asked 5 other bloggers what their favorite recipe with Manchego cheese is, and here’s what they came up with.
