I Tried It: Pinterest Recipes – Homemade Velveeta

How have I survived the past two decades without knowing how to make Homemade Velveeta? This is amazing! I just pinned the Homemade Velveeta recipe from King Arthur Flour and I am so glad I included it in this week’s “I Tried It: Pinterest Recipes” series.

Homemade Velveeta is so easy to make and so good to eat!

Suggestions:

Do have your pan lined before you start cooking.

Homemade Velveeta dry ingredients
Do have your ingredients prepped and ready.

Homemade Velveeta added cheese
Do NOT take time to taste the creamy, golden temptation before you put it in the pan.

Homemade Velveeta mixed
Do believe the instructions when you read, “It starts setting up pretty quickly, so don’t dawdle.”

Do wrap it carefully, not just so it’ll look better but so it won’t dry out.

Jay and our daughter gave it rave reviews and so did my parents, who were visiting from out of town. I haven’t cooked with my Homemade Velveeta yet but my daughter is campaigning for cheeseburger soup. I’ll let you know what I make and how it turns out. (Update: It worked beautifully in the cheeseburger soup. We loved it!)

This recipe is less expensive than regular Velveeta but still not frugal because it calls for a pound of cheese. I usually purchase cheese and powdered milk at Aldi to stay within my grocery budget. I had to go to a regular grocery store to get the gelatin. I had the option of purchasing four envelopes of gelatin for about a dollar or 32 envelopes for about 7 dollars. The recipe calls for one envelope.

If you like Velveeta you will want to try this easy, more-frugal version of your favorite creamy cheese product.
