Homemade Cheez Whiz (Recipe and Instructions)

Hi Everyone!

Today I'm going to show you how easy it is to make homemade Cheez Whiz! This is a great recipe for a cheese spread and it tastes very similar to the processed "cheese food" that you'd find in the supermarket. If you use orange Cheddar, it'll look like it too.

Homemade Cheez Whiz
(Makes about 2 cups)


1/2 pound Cheddar cheese cut into small pieces
1 cup evaporated milk
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp dry mustard
1 beaten egg


1. Melt the cheese, milk, salt and mustard together in a saucepan over medium low heat.

2. Stir about a cup of the hot mixture very slowly into the beaten egg, whisking constantly to temper the egg.

3. Add the egg mixture back to the pot and continue to cook over medium low heat until thickened. Don't bring it to a boil or it might curdle.

4. Pour into a glass jar and let cool; then refrigerate. Best to eat this within a week to ten days.

Rain, this is great! I'll have to look around for evaporated goat milk or learn to make my own!

Thanks Leigh :) I just did a quick search and it's basically boiled down milk. You could probably do this with your goat milk. Just for an example, I found this: How To Make Evaporated Milk, it's with cow milk, but I'm guessing it's the same concept!

It really is Martha, and it's so easy to make. I'm making more this week, because we are eating it really fast!!!
