What other uses for Havarti Dill Cheese?

I have a big block of this cheese in my refrigerator and I always seem to only use it on tuna sandwiches.

What other things can I make or use this cheese for?

Thank you!

  1. - grilled cheese (with or without honey mustard)
    - cheesy eggs
    - cheese 'n crackers

    1. quesadillas with smoked salmon.

      1. Angel Hair Pasta and Havarti Cream Sauce
        Chicken With Havarti Cheese Sauce
        Baked Penne with Havarti
        Cauliflower Cheese

        Frankly, because Havarti is a wonderful melting cheese it can be used as you would Fontina, Swiss, Gruyere, and the like...the dill flavor gives the dish another flavor component.

        1. Hmmm. with dill. Not sure this will work because I usually use plain Havarti, but I like it melted on a salami or corned beef sandwich with some whole grain or dijon mustard. You can use a kaiser roll, bagel, bialy, etc. I like to make open faced sandwiches and toast/broil them for a couple min in the toaster oven.

          Could also make a cheese sub with Swiss, Gouda, Monterey Jack, etc. on a baguette with mayo, dijon, lettuce & tomato.

          1. Wow! Thanks everyone! I don't know where to start! :)
