From Tillamook, Oregon, to Wisconsin and Vermont, to pizza, cheeseburgers, and mac & cheese everywhere, there is no end to the ways in which cheese enhances or stars in fundamental American dishes. A few unique regional passions are cheese curds in the northland, Frenchee sandwiches in Omaha, pimento cheese in the South, Merkts Spread in the Midwest, Maytag blue from Iowa, cotija in Mexican restaurants of the Southwest, and provel cheese on pizzas in St. Louis.
