Kraft Garlic Cheese Roll Substitute

Oh the lament across the net a few years back when Kraft decided to discontinue the garlic cheese roll! Didn't Kraft realize that while it may not have been a big seller throughout the year, thousands upon thousands of cooks across the country used that roll of garlic cheese to make their holiday broccoli cheese casserole, spinach casserole, garlic cheese biscuits, cheese balls, stove-top garlic cheese grits, and baked cheese grits, who knows what else?!

Well, I was not a user of the famous cheese roll, but in researching this topic for my readers, I ran across a tidbit that said a grocery store manager was told by the folks at Kraft, that the squirt cheese product called Easy Cheese Roasted Garlic Cheddar flavor, was actually the same exact product contained in the roll, 1 can equal to 1 roll.

Now, I don't know if that is true, but another poster said that they used the squirt cheese as a substitute and indeed it did taste the same!

But... alas, I just learned that was also discontinued!

Well, I made a request over on the Kraft Facebook page and Anne-Marie from Kraft gave me a suggested substitute to share, which happened to be almost identical to the one that I already had on here, minus the Liquid Smoke, so folks I think this recipe is just about as close as we are ever gonna get, unless they bring back the garlic cheese roll itself. Enjoy!

Here's how to make it.

Recipe: Garlic Cheese Roll Substitute

©From the Kitchen of Deep South Dish

  • 1-1/2 pounds sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1/2 pound of Velveeta
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, or to taste
  • Drop of Liquid Smoke, or to taste

Warm ingredients over a double boiler or low heat, until cheeses have melted and ingredients are well combined. Put into storage container to cool and set. Portion as needed. The cheese rolls were 6 ounces I believe - this recipe would be four of those rolls.

Garlic Cheese Roll Substitute II

1 (8 ounce) jar of original Kraft "Cheez Whiz"
Dash of garlic powder
Dash of seasoned salt (I like Morton's Nature's Seasons).

Melts beautifully, and no one has noticed the difference in my green bean casseroles, always the big hit at my table.

Garlic Cheese Roll Substitute III

3 ounces of Velveeta
3 ounces of smoked cheddar, grated
1 teaspoon of garlic powder

For the cheese grits, we just stir all these ingredients into the grits. Or, you could melt these 3 ingredients together, let cool slightly, roll and wrap in plastic wrap and store (freeze) until needed.

Are you on Facebook? If you haven't already, come and join the party! We have a lot of fun & there's always room for one more at the table.
