Say Cheezzz!

Check. It. Out!

This supremely well melting cheese looks a lot like that one in the bright yellow box at the market, but, with only four ingredients, and one of them is water!

You can also, should you like, customize it to suit your tastes. Feeling traditional, go with Cheddar. Wanna step out a bit Mexican-ish? Use Pepper Jack cheese, or add a drained can of diced green chilies, or even, as I did here, a bit of my fave hot sauce.

The only thing this loaf of cheezzz does not do as well as the one in the bright yellow box, is remain stable in the fridge for weeks or even months. This cheezzz will go moldy, so I just make in a small batch whenever I want real fake cheezzz.

•8 oz grated Cheddar cheese
•1/2 cup almost boiling water
•3 tbsp nonfat dry milk
•1/2 tsp unflavored gelatin
•1/2 tsp Cajun Power Spicy Garlic Sauce – or your fave hot sauce, to taste

Line a small loaf pan with plastic wrap, leaving extra hanging over the sides.

Add the water, dry milk, and gelatin to a blender and pulse until blended.

Add the cheese and blend until  smooth.

Turn out into the plastic wrap lined pan, pull the plastic wrap up and over the cheezzz to cover, then stash in the fridge overnight to allow it to firm up.

As I noted above, this cheezz melts like a champ, so use it for queso, or burgers, or, as I plan to, to make this wicked tasty Cheezzzy Ranch Broccoli in the ‘wave.

Check out those details, tomorrow, and go ahead and start making cheezzz.
