Shoutout to all of our fellow cheese lovers out there! This article's for you. You're welcome.

If you swoon when cheesy, creamy goodness smothers your plate, you're not alone. Any true cheese lover is biased to their particular favorite type of cheese or cheeses, but most certainly won't be opposed to branching out whenever they see some yummy, melted topping on an entree. As a matter of fact, if there's extra cheese on the table for sprinkling, you can be sure they will spy it, reach out for it, and coat their plate with an extra layer of the stuff before they even take their first bite. We can't say we blame them.

We here at Mashed have put together a compilation of recipes that are sure to be new favorites if you're undeniably obsessed with cheese. From sharp cheddar in creamy and delicious mac and cheese, to sweet ricotta in our baked ziti, you're sure to delight your palate with so many good flavors. Spoiler alert: We even have a copycat Chick-fil-A mac and cheese recipe that includes five different kinds of cheese.

Every cheese lover will have an extremely difficult time deciding which recipe to try first, but you can totally try them all, one cheesy treat at a time.

This one-pot mac and cheese is what cheesy dreams are made of

Name a better comfort food than mac and cheese. We'll wait.

Okay, since we know you're having a hard time answering that one, we're going to give you some help. Our one-pot mac and cheese recipe is a staple for every family to have on their recipe board. It's quick to make and even quicker to eat, making it perfect for busy weeknight dinners. And the best part is, you'll never receive any complaints from anyone around the table if you have this on your menu.

You can make this mac and cheese for dinner tonight and still have leftovers for several days after. But beware. It's so delicious, there's a good possibility you won't have any leftovers after that first night.

For this cheesy pot of yumminess, you'll need four kinds of cheese: freshly grated sharp cheddar, freshly grated mozzarella cheese, freshly grated Parmesan cheese, and cream cheese. (Yes, cream cheese!) The cream cheese is the ultimate addition here, helping to keep everything, well, ultra-creamy. You'll also need Dijon mustard, which gives this recipe an unexpected kick of flavor and complexity. Don't forget the pasta, milk, and optional egg yolk, in addition to the spices — ground paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.

Ultimately, this isn't just a pot of mac and cheese ... it's really a serving of love that you'll be putting on everyone's plate.

This deep dish pizza is basically overflowing with cheesiness

It's pretty hard to compete with this deep dish pizza recipe, so don't even try. It's basically a rule that every Friday night at home should include making this. Our recipe is also a solid choice for entertaining, because it's relatively easy to make. Plus, who doesn't love pizza? You just have to plan it in advance so you can mix your dough and let it rise.

To mix up the dough, you'll need all-purpose flour, instant yeast, yellow cornmeal, a tablespoon of sugar, and salt. For the pizza sauce, be sure to have unsalted butter, dried oregano, minced onion, garlic, sugar, and salt on hand, in addition to whole peeled tomatoes.

Once the dough and sauce are all set, you'll place a layer of mozzarella cheese on your dough, and then add the sauce and Parmesan cheese. You'll be ready to pop your skillet in the oven, and in 30 minutes, you'll have a scrumptious deep dish pizza that's overflowing with cheesiness.

This grilled cheese is made with three heavenly types of cheese

If you haven't perfected the art of making a grilled cheese sandwich yet, what are you waiting for? Grilled cheese is a pretty simple sandwich, but that doesn't make it any less unbelievably tasty. 

Toasty and crispy on the outside, and oh-so cheesy on the inside, this comfort food is the real deal. It's a perfectly simple dinner to make when you're not sure what else to prepare, and you likely already have the ingredients in the fridge and pantry. One thing's for sure: Who doesn't love grilled cheese?

Our recipe calls for sourdough bread and three kinds of cheese: Gruyere, fontina, and cheddar. We also spread mayo on each slice of sourdough, since, unlike butter, mayo won't burn your bread. Don't stress, though, if you don't have the exact type of bread called for in this recipe. If you don't have sourdough, you can use whatever bread you have.

Get ready, get set, and cheese it up with this cheesy classic.

You can enjoy your favorite fast food burger without getting out of your pajamas, thanks to our mouthwatering copycat In-N-Out burger recipe. It is absolutely covered with American cheese that literally melts all over the sides ... and will melt in your mouth, too.

Burger nights are always a good idea, and this recipe is so simple to prepare.

Of course, you can't forget the star ingredient of the show: In-N-Out's secret sauce (which is thought to be made up of ketchup, mayonnaise, pickle relish, distilled white vinegar, and sugar).

Sit back and enjoy the cheesy goodness of this all-time favorite meal. If you feel like taking on a bit of an extra chef challenge, check out our copycat McDonald's fries to make your meal complete.
