Lobster tastes best when baked till golden brown. Home chefs can make this simple roasted lobster with cheese recipe in their own kitchens.
Imagine that you’re watching an episode of “Iron Chef” as you read this.
The secret ingredient, according to the chairman, is lobster. “At the kitchen table!” As soon as I catch my prey, I dash back to the “Kitchen Stadium” and begin to cook.
The chairman declared Rasa Malaysia, the winner of the Battle Lobster, who served up an array of lobster dishes to the judges. Audience applause and cheers are heard!
I’m sorry, but I was just daydreaming…
Over the previous Labor Day weekend, I procured a massive 5-pound lobster and prepared three different recipes with it.
All I can say is that the 5-pounder left me lobster-ed out (to the point where I’m considering avoiding lobsters altogether!).
In the meantime, this is the first recipe I will share—baked lobster with cheese. Lobster and cheese baked in the oven are, in my opinion, unbeatable. The food was very delicious.
The following are some of my other lobster dishes that you may also enjoy:
If you ask me, they’re well worth a look!

I’ve compiled a collection of recipes that are both healthy and quick enough to prepare on a weeknight.
- ITALIAN SHRIMP PASTA
- GRILLED TOMATOES
- BASIL BUTTER CORN
- GARLIC PARMESAN ROASTED CARROT
- 1/2 slice bacon, chopped finely
- 1 pinch sugar
- salt to taste
- 2 teaspoons melted butter
- 1/2 lobster
- 1 stalk spinach
- 1 clove garlic, chopped finely
- 2/3 cup light cream
- dried parsley flakes
- 2 slices cheese, use your favorite cheese
- Cut the lobster in half after cleaning it (only half the lobster). Chop the spinach after being cooked in hot water and drained thoroughly. Set aside.
- Heat a skillet and add the butter once it has melted.
- Add the spinach and cream to a pot and heat to a boil, then add the garlic and bacon. Combine a little flour with a pinch of salt to thicken the sauce. Set aside.
- The oven should be preheated to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (170 degrees Celsius). Evenly coat the lobster’s body and head with the mixture. The lobster should be topped with tiny slices of cheese. Bake in your oven for 20-25 minutes to achieve a golden brown cheese. Serve the lobster with lemon wedges and dry parsley flakes.
- I used Kraft American cheese for this dish because it was light and crunchy when cooked. In addition, I enjoy processed cheese. Sharp cheese may be necessary if you decide to give this a whirl. (Using Kraft does not constitute a “culinary sin” for me!) *wink* Second and third recipes will use lobster claws and other lobster parts.
