This 3-cheese recipe includes pre-shredded cheddar, kashkaval, and goat cheese – for a super creamy result. If this recipe is up your alley then stock up on certain items like these specialty cheeses, so you have them on hand for a quick dinner. 

You can always use your favorite blend of 3 cheeses - mozzarella and even cottage cheese would both compliment the cheddar nicely or just triple the cheddar if that’s all you’ve got - you know me – rules are so out the window when it comes to the kitchen. Don’t let a lack of kashkaval keep you from making this recipe.
