With Super Bowl just 2 weeks away – everyone is planning for parties and making appetizers. But many are freaking out since Kraft has given us all a one-two punch. First they announced a shortage of Velveeta cheese – then today we hear Kraft is recalling 1.77lbs of Velveeta because of bad labeling.
No worries! I found a recipe on how to make your own Velveeta. My foodie friend Neil tried it out first and says its easy and pretty delish. So I had to give it a shot. He was right!
I tested it out this morning with the guys… no complaints. not sure if it was good or they just liked the idea of nachos before 7am.
Line a 4 x 5-inch loaf pan with plastic wrap, letting the excess hang over the sides.
In a small bowl, combine water and gelatin and stir. Let stand for 5 minutes.
Combine cheeses, milk powder, and salt in a food processor bowl. Pulse to combine.
Microwave milk for 45 seconds. Slowly add hot milk through food processor tube then add the thickened gelatin mixture.
Process for 1-2 minutes, stopping occasionally to scrape down the sides of bowl. Should come out perfectly smooth.
Quickly add to loaf pan. Remove any air bubbles with a spatula. Smooth surface of cheese. Cover with excess plastic wrap.
Chill for 3 hours or overnight. Slice as needed.
