Homemade White American Cheese


3 cups grated cheese (Colby or cheddar or pepper jack or mozzarella or a blend of cheeses of your choice)

1 TBS powdered gelatin

2 TBS water

2 TBS milk powder

Salt to taste - go very light

1/4 tsp cream of tartar

1 cup plus 4 TBS milk


Line your loaf pan with plastic wrap.

Combine the cheese, milk powder, salt & cream of tartar in a food processor.  Pulse in the grated cheese.  

Dissolve the gelatin in the water & let sit a minute or two.  Do not wait too long or it will completely gel.  Pulse the gelatin into the cheese.  

Heat the milk in a pan until it simmers.  Pour this milk into the food processor  while it is running & puree until completely smooth - a minute or two.  

Pour this into the lined loaf pan.  Press flat to squeeze out any air pockets.  Refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

Slice it up & use it the way you would use any other American cheese.
