*NOTE: I know Kraft no longer makes rolls of garlic cheese, but I was able to get a recipe that taste just like Kraft it: Here it is!
1-1/2 lb. sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 lb. of Velveeta
3 oz. cream cheese, softened to room temperature
1 tsp. seasoned salt
1/4 to 1/2 tsp. garlic powder, or to taste
Drop of Liquid Smoke, or to taste
Warm ingredients over a double boiler on Low heat or in slow cooker, until cheeses have melted and ingredients are well combined. Put into storage container to cool and set. Portion as needed. The Kraft rolls of garlic cheese were 6 oz., I believe – this recipe would be four of those rolls or 24 oz.
