Homemade Velveeta Sauce

Pin It

In the grocery stores, Velveeta has gone up in price, anyone else notice?  Growing up, Velveeta was a staple in my house in the '80's.  I was curious, yet skeptical, if two ingredients would give me the same flavor and consistency as Velveeta would.  

The recipe is adapted from Listen to the Mrs.  I love how quick and easy this is to put together, as well as being frugal!  Great substitute to make for any recipe calling for Velveeta!  It's even good for like Cheez Whiz!  Thinking of my mom's Broccoli Cheese Rice Casserole right about now.... Or is anyone in the mood for some queso with this and some Rotel?!

1/2 cup heavy cream
10 slices processed American cheese

Heat the cream and cheese together, stirring until cheese is melted and thick in a saucepan.  Or heat ingredients together in a bowl in the microwave for about 2 minutes.  Stir until nice and creamy.

When the cheese has cooled, it should "harden" just like the Velveeta does.
