    mom would add a touch of dried ground mustard powder to cheese sauce to enhance the cheese flavor.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one that sneaks things my DH doesn't like into foods. If he doesn't know it's in there, he'll eat it. I once fixed frozen squash and told him it was sweet potatoes. He didn't know the difference. I think it was a Green Giant product but I haven't been able to find it again. The color was the same as sweet potatoes.

    Laughing! My DML always had to have Green Giant peas when she visited. Said she could tell the difference! So at the first meal I served them, kept the empty can under the sink, 2 weeks later when we had peas again they were the store brand. I hid that can, put the old can on the counter. When I asked if the peas were OK, she said yes, she could always tell Green Giant. My husband nearly choked trying not to laugh.

    Add a pinch of cayenne or smoked paprika with the mustard powder to further enhance the flavour. It does not make it hot, just gives additional depth to the sauce. Works well in cheese biscuits too.

    Oh yes, I do that too! If you want a real cheesy flavor, you can also add a little nutritional yeast. Lots of great ideas!

    I buy smoked paprika by the pound in the bulk section and use it for everything. Same with "nooch" (Nutritional yeast.) If you try the nooch, just add a little bit...a teaspoon, or two. It can be overpowering if you use too much. (BTW, nooch supplies a lot of vitamin B12, which is often lacking in our diets.)

    I had to laugh at this thread. I have just spent 5 months with my daughter and SIL tending to my new grandson. SIL is the weekend breakfast cook and a really good one.

    I had told them I didn't care for pumpkin...muffins, pie, waffles, etc. But one weekend, after several times of my requesting plain waffles for my plate, he made "cinnamon" waffles presented them for breakfast. I ate a couple and remarked how nice the cinnamon was. He and DD nearly choked trying not to laugh! Finally he said, "Yeah, these sure are good "cinnamon" waffles" and I could tell by the tone of his voice that I'd been 'had', the silly stinkers!!

    We laughed about that the rest of the visit, but I found I still preferred my regular plain waffles and they didn't try to tease me again. Love those kids.

    Want to make restaurant/catering melting cheese? Much cheaper then buying it.
    This recipe is decades old and makes the best cheese dip.

    Put 6 tablespoons dry milk and a 1/4-ounce packet dry unflavored gelatin in a blender or food processor.
    Blend briefly, just to combine.


    Add 1 cup boiling water, blending just until smooth. IMMEDIATELY add 16 ounces shredded cheese.

    8-ounce bags of shredded orange sharp cheddar cheese will work.


    Process until the mixture is totally smooth.


    Pour/scoop the mixture into your prepared pan. It starts setting up pretty quickly, so don’t dawdle.
    Gently pat the plastic wrap onto the surface; the less wrinkled the wrap, the smoother your final product.


    Refrigerate for a few hours, until it’s set. Take it out of the pan,
    and make sure it’s wrapped securely – no bare surfaces showing.
    Refrigerate..
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    Thank you, Susie! Both my daughters look like me, I feel, though they are from different fathers. It's those strong Brit/Scandinavian genes. Here is my other daughter with my older grandson.

    What do you mean by melting cheese? Is it used for fondue or veggies?

    Is this like Velveeta? If so, Wow! Never ever thought you could just make a similar product!
    What size pan? How do you prepare the pan? I assume to keep the cheese from sticking???
    Another use for the Vitamix!

    What an interesting recipe/idea. I love cheese dip/sauces and may give this a try. As a matter of fact I had Velveeta/Rotel dip last night with guacamole and Tostitos chips for dinner. Hate doing that, makes me feel so guilty, but the situation warranted it at the time. Thanks for posting it, OnebyOne.

    I have made this before and it is what the many restaurants use. Especially the ones that use a lot of cheese for Mexican dishes. They make it by the tub full. I use a loaf pan, oiled. Easier to store in that shape. I have never thought any food product couldn't be made at home as long as I had the right ingredients. Great restaurants make everything from scratch, cost the fraction of buying pre made. Better the food the more customers the more staff to do the prep work in the kitchen.
