I believe it. Probably has the same result with macaroni and cheese.
My guess is that it has something to do with breaking down a protein
fat mixture like cheese. I suspect the fat has to be 'rendered'
before the digestive system can get at the truly digestable stuff.
That takes time and thus the spike later after the fat is processed
in the intestines much later in the process. This would not hold for
steak where the protein tissue is available for attack immediately by
stomach acid since the cell walls of the meat are pretty much
destroyed by the cooking and chewing process.
