What are fried eggs without cheese? Okay, perhaps quite a lot for those who are lactose intolerant. For the rest of us, cheese is pretty crucial when it comes to making a hot batch of scrambled eggs. But which cheeses are the best to add to your eggs? There are many different cheeses you can go with, but here are three that we find to be the best.


Muenster cheese is the gift that keeps on giving. You can enjoy it on its own, in a sandwich, and, you guessed it, with your eggs. This particular cheese provides a mozzarella-like classic tone, while also offering a solid kick on the backend that’s hard to deny.


One of the most popular cheeses in the world, cheddar is the kind of thing you simply can’t say no to. Boasting a powerful, bold flavor that can’t be stopped, it’s the optimal kind of pairing for a plate of fried eggs that could use a flavor boost.


Some things in this world are classic for a reason. As hinted at above, mozzarella cheese is very much one of those things. The beauty of mozzarella is that its flavor isn’t exactly in your face—and yet its subtlety is like a Michelangelo painting that continues to blow your mind, no matter how many times you view it.
