We have a very important PSA to share with you this afternoon: There’s a massive cheese surplus in America—as in, we have more than 1.2 billion pounds of delicious extra cheese that could potentially go to waste. If we all rally, and each person in the country commits to eating more than three pounds of cheese each, we’ll be able to solve this conundrum.
In case you’re interested in how we got to this shameful point, the European Union—which is responsible for a lot of our cheese imports—reduced prices, and their exports have increased to the US, as well as some other countries. Meanwhile, local farmers are still churning out their own cheese products, which they’ve struggled to export due to the strong dollar, leading us to the cheese surplus.
Since this is just about the best excuse for four-cheese pizza we’ve ever heard, ahead you’ll find 18 unapologetically cheesy recipes just waiting for you to follow right now. Come on, guys; do it for America.
