Muenster cheese is an American copy of a pungent, soft cheese from France.

It has an orange rind and a mild flavor similar to American cheese. But there’s also a slightly sharp bite that helps it to stand out in recipes.

Wildly available and relatively affordable, these Muenster cheese recipes are an easy way to add cheesy goodness to dinnertime!

Easy Muenster Grilled Cheese Sandwiches and More!

1. Muenster and Avocado Grilled Cheese 

Take classic grilled cheese to new satisfying heights – no tomato soup required!

Rich and slightly salty Muenster cheese pairs perfectly with creamy avocado on toasted sourdough bread. 

Infuse extra flavor by coating the bread with mayo and mustard, and layer peppery arugula for a nice serving of healthy greens. 

2. Patti LaBelle’s Macaroni and Cheese 

Patti LaBelle knows how to cook up more than just marmalade.

This classic macaroni and cheese is sinfully decadent, luxuriously creamy, and captures everything you love about this traditional comfort food. 

The trick to this version is to stick with humble ingredients.

You’ll need half & half, creamy cheeses such as American, Muenster, Monterey Jack, and good old-fashioned Velveeta. 

3. Over-the-Top Mac’ n’ Cheese 

Is there such a thing as too much cheese? I certainly don’t think so!

This over-the-top mac ‘n’ cheese isn’t shy about turning the dial up to eleven.

It pairs Muenster, American, and Monterey Jack cheese in a creamy sauce you’ll want to lick off the plate.

Add a few eggs into the mix, toss it into a baking dish, and dot the top with butter.

It’s baked to golden perfection and oh-so-satisfying. 

4. Muenster Grilled Cheese Sandwiches 

Put away those rubbery American cheese slices and try this sensational Muenster grilled cheese sandwich.

The simple cheese swap adds sharper and spicier notes. But that’s not all!

What makes this sandwich stand out in a sea of bland grilled cheeses is cream cheese in the center for extra creamy goodness. 

5. Twice Baked Potatoes

What’s better than a baked potato? A twice-baked potato, of course.

You’ll add smokey bacon and plenty of savory goodness from a heaping portion of Muenster cheese. 

After the first bake, scoop out the potato guts and mix them with bacon, cheese, and herbs. Then, bake it again!

Want an added kick of spice? Mix some jalapeño peppers in there, too. 

6. Crustless Spinach Quiche 

When you’re short on time, a good old-fashion quiche is an excellent dinner option in a pinch.

This crustless recipe is easy to make, and you likely have all the ingredients on hand. 

It uses just five eggs, a pack of frozen spinach, and Muenster and Parmesan cheese.

Once mixed, it needs just 30 minutes in the oven. Serve hot with a clean side salad. 

7. Arugula Flatbreads with Prosciutto and Muenster Cheese 

It may look like something from a restaurant, but this fun flatbread is crazy-easy to make at home.

Plus, this satisfying and salty take on pizza comes together in just 25 minutes. 

Melt Muenster cheese and salty prosciutto atop flatbread and bake in the oven until melty and delicious.

For extra nutrition, top each pizza with peppery greens, such as arugula. 

This is super easy with store-bought pizza dough. Or, use a garlic naan bread for something insanely fluffy and flavorful.

8. Oven-Baked Muenster Chicken 

Breaded and baked chicken is always a fan favorite at dinnertime.

And this simple chicken bake has everything you already love – plus a generous helping of Muenster cheese.

9. Za’atar Grilled Cheese Pita Sandwich 

America doesn’t have the market cornered on grilled cheese sandwiches, ya know!

This Middle Eastern-inspired grilled cheese pairs flavorful ingredients with cheesy goodness. 

While the Muenster and feta cheeses are the stars of the show, Za’atar seasoning adds nutty, crunchy, bold, and herby flavors.

Pile it inside pita bread and pop it on the grill. Yum!

10. Creamy Stuffed Chicken Parmesan 

Stuffed chicken breasts will always be a favorite in my house.

It takes a bit extra time pounding the chicken thin enough to stuff, but it’s well worth it. 

This recipe infuses cream cheese, Muenster, and fresh basil to combat the savory and juicy meat.

It pairs best with spaghetti with marinara, but any side dish complements this incredibly satisfying protein. 

11. Easy French Onion Soup 

Swiss cheese is the traditional topping for French onion soup. That said, any tasty cheese will work in a pinch.

For example, Muenster melts beautifully and brings a salty kick you don’t get from Swiss.

This French onion soup only takes an hour to make, with most of that time spent chopping veggies.

It’s beefy, cheesy, and ideal for winter dinners when it’s cold outside.

12. Bacon, Pear, and Raspberry Grilled Cheese 

I know what you’re thinking: there’s got to be a typo in that title! Bacon, pear, and…raspberry…in grilled cheese?

It sounds like something salty and overly sweet, but I promise this dish delivers.

The pear adds a muted sweetness and a little buttery crunch. That pairs perfectly with salty bacon and Muenster cheese.

As for the raspberries? Well, they bring a bright tartness to the mix that I think you’ll fall for after one bite.

13. Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes  

These cheesy scalloped potatoes are a fantastic dish to bring to your next holiday party.

They’re creamy, delicious, and ripe for whatever cheese you have on hand. 

While most cheeses work in this dish, Muenster is an excellent option. It has a mild flavor that won’t overpower with just a touch of salty sharpness. 

14. Four Cheese Stuffed Shells

These four cheese stuffed shells are like a cross between mac and cheese and lasagna.

Large pasta shells are an ideal vehicle for cheesy goodness, and they’re effortless to whip together on a busy weeknight. 

Stuff cooked shells with ricotta, Muenster, Parmesan, and Asiago cheeses.

The savory notes from the ricotta and Muenster pair wonderfully with the sharp and salty Asiago.

Pack them into a baking dish, cover with marinara, and bake for 50 minutes.

And don’t forget the garlic bread!

15. Hawaiian Turkey and Cheese Sliders 

These Hawaiian turkey and cheese sliders are just what you need to feed a hungry (and picky) crowd.

While they’re fantastic for a quick weeknight meal, they are also an excellent snack for fall football or tailgate parties. 

The secret to these delicious sliders is to use Kings Hawaiian rolls. Pile them high with turkey and Muenster cheese, and pop them in the oven.

They’re so tasty and come together in a snap. Plus, they’re totally kid-approved.

16. Quick Baked Ziti with Sour Cream (Meat Optional) 

This quick, baked ziti with sour cream is sure to impress your friends and family – and it’s vegetarian to boot.

While the original recipe calls for ground beef, you can easily omit the protein (or swap it for a meat substitute) to keep it veggie-friendly.

That way, everyone can enjoy dinner together. 

Adding Muenster cheese brings a pop of saltiness and more flavor than traditional mozzarella.

Plus, there’s sour cream and ricotta cheese, so it’s loaded with creamy, protein-packed goodness.

17. Three Cheese Fondue 

I’m so happy fondue is making a comeback. It’s rich, tasty, and a fabulous dinner-party conversation starter.

This three-cheese fondue recipe packs smoky flavors from equal parts cheese, cream, and spices.

There’s a yummy kick from the dry mustard and Worcestershire sauce.

Meanwhile, the Muenster, smoked Gouda, and Dubliner cheeses make it impossible to resist. 

Serve with crackers, crusty bread, veggies, or even cubes of meat for super-indulgent party food everyone will love.
