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.
