So far I have only used the product to make mac & cheese and in a recipe calling for cheese sauce. Both tasted great. I just wish it was for sale at the store and came in an eight ounce box instead of the huge can I ordered. I am seventy five years old and do not need anything with a 25 year shelf life. At my age I'm taking a chance when I buy green bananas.
I don't know what the other reviewer is referring too, my can says "stir 1/3 cup cheese powder into 1 cup HOT WATER using a whisk. Continue stirring until smooth. Let stand 3-5 minutes, whisk again. Yields 4 one quarter cup servings."
I've used this cheese blend for over a year, and it's excellent and sooo easy, and it only uses WATER. Mixing 1/3 of a cup and ending with a whole cup of cheese sauce is a deal if you ask me.
It's excellent on broccoli, mac and cheese and even used as a dip for potato chips.
I have never mixed it with milk or butter...
Ok, don't expect high quality cheese from Europe here. Think the dry powdered boxed mac and cheese, only I think Augason's is better. If there ever is a food shortage for whatever reason, you'll be glad to have this. It does take quite a bit of stirring to mix it with water though, better to get one of those shaker cups or use a blender if you still have power, and then you can add the powdered butter and milk, also from Augason Farms, to some pasta and it makes a good rendition of mac and cheese. Keep a can handy for whatever emergency befalls you, and you'll be glad that you did.
AUGASON FARMS CHEESE BLEND POWDER + Bisquick + very few other ingredients make perfect Cheese Straw Appetizers for the Holidays. Also great for sauces.
Augason Cheese Blend is awesome. Use it on popcorn all the time, but especially like it for cheese and broccoli soup and in salads. The container is quite large and I didn't think I'd use it up too quickly, but I keep finding uses for it and now think it will be gone before long. It doesn't require milk to turn out good results. Milk and/or butter simply make it creamier. Really like knowing exactly what's in it, too.
It is like the rest I have bought very good but as a Disabled VER. person of Older senior would love for Wal Mart to put together a special for people like me. a one time special on many food items for use every day and storage as payday is light and 30 days between. But want you to know pl;eased with the product very much.
We love this. Use it all the time. My granddaughter and husband LOVE this. Buy inexpensive noodles and this and you can know what is in your mac n cheese. Use to make mac n cheese in casseroles Best price around-love it!
over popcorn,i put it on ramien noodles with frozen veggies to make the worlds easiest casserole.
This cheese powder is incredibly tasty, versatile, a great value, and adds food value to dishes. Useful in many ways, I keep finding ways to use it beyond the yummy mac n' cheese it makes. The recipes on the can are especially tasty. I will always have a can of this on hand, and I love the large size. I really appreciate having products like this in large sizes at Walmart as I don't like to keep having to re-buy products all the time. I continue to be a very happy Walmart customer!
Making my own macaroni and cheese is just as simple as using the preboxed kind. I can add as much cheese as I want and also use it for a cream sauce over vegetables. I love buying the bulk and the quality is the same if not better than the boxed. Put extra cellophane over it before putting the lid back on for longer storage. It keeps very well.
I think my kids are just used to Kraft because they didn't like it too much. I find that I have to add a lot of cheese to pasta to give it the cheesiness we are used to, even then, the flavoring isn't what they are used to and they don't eat as much of it.
I quite like the consistency of the cheese. It is really creamy (using just water, as the directions call for#.
I think if the cheese was a little more concentrated somehow #like Kraft seems to be), I would like it better, I just feel that I have to use a lot to make macaroni and cheese. I haven't used it for much else so I'm not sure how it fares. Too bad Kraft doesn't sell their cheese by the can, until then, I will probably be buying this again.
I added this powder to a crockpot of pintos, diced tomatoes and jalapenos. MUCH better than cheddar cheese soup and doesn't separate like cheddar with fat floating on top. Very tasty. I'll be playing with this by adding olive oil, yogurt, etc. to make a spread.
Definite yum factor with ease of access: cheese in the cupboard!
This product is designed for use in an emergency though many of us use it all the time. If you were in the Philippines right now and you were offered a meal that included this cheese sauce, you would be thrilled. Don't expect it to be like what you can make from scratch. My elderly dog gets a scant sprinkling of cheese powder on his dry food and he loves it. I am never without a can of this product. You can buy a small can at the Augason Farms website.
I had to add double the recommended amount to get the extra cheesy flavor that I like but poured into a cup of rice with some herbs, it tasted great and made a nice easy rainy day meal. Tasted as good as any boxed mac and cheese dinner.
This blend gives a great taste to many dishes. It makes the only mac and cheese that my grandson likes. I have also added it to cheese soup recipes. Nice flavor. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is cause a 5 is reserved for my own fresh real cheese.
I've only made the cheese spread version of this product. Easy to make, just add water, and a cheddary tasting product with the consistency of Cheeze Whiz.
I've enjoyed it on crackers and chunks of bread. I'm certain the sauce would be very good on eggs, fish, and veggies.
Ingredients are surprisingly good with the exceptions of FD&C yellow #5
I wouldn't buy again unless they substitute a non-synthetic dyeing substance such as annatto, malt color, or betacarotene. FD&C yellow #5 causes the most allergic reactions of all the food dyes, most commonly noted among asthmatics and those with an aspirin intolerance.
works great in a pinch!
I have had a can of this for about 6 months. I use this to make mac and cheese on a regular basis. I like that I have more control over what I'm cooking.
This is just powdered cheese, no sugar added. I don't know if Kraft changed their recipe or something, but the mixes have a little sugar in them, which is just weird. You can't add enough salt to make that taste right. With the Augason cheese powder, you can get it the way you like.
I also like to make a bigger batch and use better pasta than the thin junk that comes in the boxed mixes. Once you have made your own a few times, you will see that it's actually more convenient than having to buy little boxes constantly. It's one less thing on my grocery list.
As for the powder mixing, I have found that you need to use hot water. At first I thought cold water would be better because that's what you need with corn starch, but nope. Use hot water and a whisk, and it will blend well in just a couple of seconds. Then quickly pour into your cooked noodles. Milk and butter are optional. I use 2 or three times as much liquid as they have on the instructions, because once mixed, the cheese sauce will thicken up, and it can get lumpy if you don't already have the liquid mixed in.
it is something that i have been looking for for a long time just wish they had it in stores so i don't have to pay extra for shipping
