Does Stilton Melt?

When it comes to melting, Stilton behaves differently from some other cheeses. Due to its crumbly texture and unique blue veins, Stilton doesn't melt as smoothly as, for example, cheddar or mozzarella.

That being said, it can still be used in cooked dishes, such as pasta bakes or gratins, where the cheese's distinct flavor can shine through. When melting Stilton, it's advisable to crumble or grate it for better distribution and ease of melting.
