After Kraft discontinued their Garlic Cheese Roll, I thought I'd never be able to make our family favorite "Garlic Cheese Grits Casserole" again. Then we came across this recipe. A family tradition was saved!

Serves:

Makes 4- 10 oz. portions (4 rolls)

Prep:

35 Min

Method:

No-Cook or Other

Ingredients

3 oz
cream cheese, room temperature
1 Tbsp
garlic powder
1 tsp
seasoned salt
1 lb
american cheese loaf (velveeta), shredded
1 1/2 lb
sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat cream cheese, garlic powder and seasoned salt until fluffy.
2
Add American cheese and mix well.
3
Add cheddar cheese and mix thoroughly, frequently scraping down sides of bowl and scraping up from the bottom. (This takes several minutes to become thoroughly incorporated.)
4
Divide garlic cheese into four equal portions, wrap well, then refrigerate or freeze.
5
SUGGESTION TO DIVIDE AND STORE: Put cheese into a gallon size zipper bag. Lay on flat surface, press to remove as much air as possible and zip bag closed. Using a rolling pin, roll and flatten until smooth, even and pressed into each corner of bag. Using a sharp chef's knife, cut bag in half, then cut each in half again to make four equal portions. Place each in a quart size zipper bag and freeze or refrigerate.
6
To use frozen portion, remove from freezer ahead of time and allow to come to room temperature before adding to a recipe.
