Now that I have your attention…. here’s how to make a home made version of Velveeta, only from actual cheese!
Line a loaf pan with plastic wrap.
Put gelatin and powdered milk into a blender. Add boiling water and process immediately until smooth. Add cheese and continue blending until mixture is very smooth.
Pour mixture into pan and smooth out with a spatula. Cover with more plastic wrap then refrigerate until firm.
Use in any recipe that calls for melty cheese… with the added advantage that you control which cheese it is. I use a blend of cheaper orange block cheese for the bulk of the cheese, then add in a stronger cheese for flavour. You can totally play around with this, using offcuts and bits of leftover cheese to make a cheese loaf that suits you perfectly… then melt it over some delicious burgers, or use it for Mac N Blue Cheese….
