While poking around on household management and cooking blogs, I stumbled upon references to using cheddar cheese powder at home. I was curious, so I bought some off of Amazon. Eddie loves mac-n-cheese for an easy lunch or dinner so that was my first trial recipe with it.
Before preparing an actual box of Kraft Mac-n-Cheese one day, I measured out the dry pasta and orange cheese powder first.
1 1/4 cups dry macaroni noodles
1/3 cup cheese powder
Cook, drain, and add:
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup butter or margarine
You can use cheddar cheese powder and whatever noodles you want to make the same thing at home. It's also good on popcorn for a movie snack. We find that it doesn't stick to the popcorn as well as commercial cheesy popcorn snacks so we just dip our popped corn into it.
