I'll take one with bacon.

OK, I love mac & cheese made with Velveeta. Super smooth and creamy. I can add in other cheeses for depth of flavor, but the Velveeta is the base.

/don't @ me!

I gotta admit, I love the stuff.  I don't feel great about loving it, but I love it

A can of chili, a pound of velveeta, a microwave and tostitos scoops.  Dinner on Movie Night.  Disgusting, but oh so tasty.

Very interesting theory...but I shall have to spend many hours in the laboratory this weekend before being completely satisfied with the author's interpretation of the results.

A restaurant near my house used to have a menu item called the Elvis Velveeta burger.  More than one a year would kill you.  I guess that's why they don't offer it any more.

I prefer Swiss on my burgers.

Thinly sliced Cheddar melts just fine and actually provides some genuine flavor.

common sense is an oxymoron: Thinly sliced Cheddar melts just fine and actually provides some genuine flavor.


Or you can process it with sodium citrate and make your own cheddar flavored "American" cheese that melts perfectly.

/also works on any other type of cheese

What a pain in the ass. I'd rather eat Velveeta.

"She starts with grated Colby cheese-a very mild yellow cheese that forms the base of most American-style cheese slices. (I used a young white cheddar instead.) After pulsing it in the blender with a bit of salt, cream of tartar (for its tang), and whole dry milk powder (for a rich, milky flavor), she pours in hot milk to which some bloomed gelatin has been added before pouring the whole thing into a mold to chill and slice."

That's sort of the long method. The short one is a lot easier. Take 1 part beer and 4 parts cheese of any type by weight, and about 2% of the weight in sodium citrate. So, for example, 250 ml beer, 1 kg cheese, and around 25 grams of sodium citrate. Head the beer to a simmer, dissolve the citrate in it, then add the cheese in shredded handfuls, stirring until it melts.
You can then use it as a perfect cheese sauce, or pour it out onto a mat and chill it and it becomes room-temperature stable, sliceable cheese. I've done it with both smoked gouda and parmesan.

Gouda. It adds a creamy texture and more smokey flavor to the grilled burger.

Oh, come on. Shred cheese. Melt cheese. Mix. Chill cheese. And you can make pounds of it at a time, and it freezes well.

Velveeta (tm) - so vegetarians can have Spam, too.

Velveeta has always been a guilty pleasure of mine.  I'll always prefer a good quality cheese, but there are those rare times where nothing will do but a big block of colon-clogging Velveeta.

My g-ma always made grilled cheese with Velveeta! it might not be real cheese, but it melts like magic and you don't get the weird texture like you do with some melted cheddars. I do like making a stuffed burger with Fontina, though.
