White Bean Cheddar Melt Recipe

Honestly, I get bored with lunch. The same old, same old, well … it gets old. But it doesn’t have to. Enter the White Bean Cheddar Melt, a recipe I discovered at Bush’s Beans.

Natural Sargento Cheese


When it comes to cheese, I’m not much of an expert. Not in the least bit. Honestly, I’ve given little thought to how cheese is made, especially sliced cheese.
