There aren't many occasions in life that encourage you to eat a whole wheel of brie cheese without feeling shame. Except for today. Today, you can down that brie, follow it with mozzarella sticks and own it. Because today, January 20, is National Cheese Lovers Day.

Every other day of the year, us cheese lovers show our love of this food with an order of quattro formaggi pizza, an ultra cheesy pasta dish, or a beautiful ball of burrata. But on this day, you can eat all three. Scratch that, you should eat all three.

Whether you're a brie lover, a mozzarella maniac, or you can't get enough of the creaminess of goat cheese, we have the recipes you need to celebrate this glorious food holiday. We have 50 of them.
