    Queso dip without Velveeta is like a maple bar without maple icing.

    What I want to know is, how can the poster "essvee" post something and have their post count remain at zero?

      Wondered the same about the post count...not that it matters really.

      I also make the "Party rye pizzas" I can't go to some functions without them.

            OK Now that's it! I have tolerated the unspeakable on this site over the many years but this one I
            can not accept. Velveeta is.....Excuse me......"I am Glenn. I Like Velveeta Too!" (everybody say
            Hi Glenn) Velveeta is Cheese. Next you are going to tell me Spam ain't meat. You want a "Real"
            Sandwich.

            Pan fry a few pieces of Spam to a rich golden brown.
            Lightly spread 2 pieces of bread on the inside with some Miracle Whip.
            Place the Spam and some Velveeta cheese in between the bread.
            Now lightly spread some margarine on the out side of the bread and toast in a hot skillet.
            Oh and some Pringles on the side........

            There Ya Go. Grilled Spam and Velveeta.

            What? Pringles are not Potato Chips you say, They are "Potato Crisps" Is there any thing
            real any more.

            Sorry, I have to go and watch me some Wrestling at least that’s
            real!

              Yes, my name is Judy and I like some Mexican velveeta mixed with a can of Rotel tomatoes when I'm in the mood for some mexican munchies...it's my favorite with some Fritos scoops! Mexican velveeta is harder to find than regular but it is so worth it!!! Barney

                My name is Lucky and I just got my 50 year key for being clean and Velveeta free. I had it once when I was 11, damn!

                  from the Harvard Lampoon version of Dune

                  One of our local supermarkets (Winn Dixie?) before Christmas would set a whole pallet of Velveeta "bricks" out in the aisle - no refrigeration at all for weeks. It didn't seem to affect it any.

                    I'll bet it is the exact same pallet they set out every year!

                      Velveeta and Rotel Dip is an institution around here in Ok and Texas----i first tried it when it was offered to me by Dottie Baker-(ex wife of Bobby Baker--remember him--the old crony of LBJ that got into that big Texas fertilzer scandle)--she loved it--and soon ,so did I---its the only recipe use for velveeta that i use--killer comfort food!

                        It can sometime help save a cheese dish where your sauce is starting to break.
                        It's not perfect but in a pinch it can work.

                          I think it’s nasty cheese, but in an ingredient in our family’s tuna noodle casserole, it’s an essential.

                            I hate to admit this but I do have a recipe that calls for one pound of Velveeta (I refuse to call it cheese) and it is an appetizer called "Hanky Panks".

                            It comsists of one pound of hot sausage and one pound of pork sausage cooked with oregano and garlic powder, drained and then one pound of Velveeta stirred into it and spread on party rye bread and baked. This is great as you can put the topping on the rye and freeze it and then get some out on a moment's notice and you have something quick to serve with before dinner drinks.

                              Love the stuff. It's great in hot dips and it doesn't get oily and stringy the way 'cheese' does. Or maybe it's just so good it doesn't last long enough to get oily and stringy.

                                Why do you hate to admit it???

                                It is an ingredient that can be used for many things as indicated above. Perhaps it is not cheese but to many, it taste good. If it was not so good, they would not sell it.

                                  My mother busted me in the corner of the kitchen as a two year old....I had found an unwrapped box of Velveeta in the fridge and had almost finished the whole block when she caught me...I still remember some blue writing on the foil wrapper...My other claim to fame was eating a full pound of bacon that was "resting" on the stove top....my uncle caught me just after I finished...."Gee, the kid sure likes bacon".

                                    My friends consider me a notorius "food snob". However, I love Velveeta AND, American cheese!
                                    After all, other than cream cheese and pot cheese (a cottage cheese) what other cheese could you describe as being a,
                                    "comfort food"?

                                      The first grilled cheese sammich I ever had, when I was maybe 4 and made for me by my father's sister, was made with Velveeta and it's been my favorite for grilled cheese sammiches ever since. Same for my kids. They also like it on cheeseburgers.
                                      Their father gets Tillamook cheddar.

                                      Would I eat it on a cracker? Hell no!

                                      It is great for that con queso dip stuff though.

                                          "My dog loves it as I use it every day to give her a pill that is required. I insert the pill in a small chuck of velveeta and she immediately ingest the pill. She will not take it without it.

                                          Mr. Sundancer, I hope those aren't pills you're giving the sweet doggie for constipation.

                                          "the ONLY way so far I have found that I do not like it is FUDGE."

                                          Looks to me as though Kraft is trying to substitute Velveeta Processed Cheese Food for Marshmallow Fluff. Do they offer a Velv-a-nutter sandwich.

                                          Also, this recipe sounds very 50s to me. Something you'd eat just before you ran out of the fallout shelter.

                                            It comsists of one pound of hot sausage and one pound of pork sausage cooked with oregano and garlic powder, drained and then one pound of Velveeta stirred into it and spread on party rye bread and baked. This is great as you can put the topping on the rye and freeze it and then get some out on a moment's notice and you have something quick to serve with before dinner drinks.


                                            Why do you hate to admit it???

                                            It is an ingredient that can be used for many things as indicated above. Perhaps it is not cheese but to many, it taste good. If it was not so good, they would not sell it.

                                              Ah, no wonder I like it.There's nothing aswonderful as grated Velveeta over Franco American Spaghetti.

                                                Pleae, no disrepect intended but how do I interpert all these ingredients?

                                                Quite frankly from my point of view only, Velveeta taste pretty good to me. The ingredients my be lethal? I do not know but so is my Canadian libations.

                                                Velveeta is only an ingredient that I use for certain things. Obviously it is not poisionous or it would be off the market.

                                                If I enjoy it, what the heck.

                                                  I'm with you Paul. Heck....Milk, Water, Whey Protein, these main ingredients are considered Health Food in most nutrition circles!

                                                  I can see how it can be looked down upon by the Cheese Purists, however. I mean, What wine would you pair with Velvetta, anyway?

                                                        I must admit to using Velveeta...nachos for a crowd, on burgers. Cold, it is nothing to be consumed.

                                                            As a young college student, fresh out of the Army, I cooked omelets for a girl I'd had a single date with and one of her friends. As I remember it (some 30 years later), it was ham, sauteed onions, green peppers, mushrooms and Velveeta. I got rave reviews from the two of them, and I learned a very valuable lesson...women can't resist a man who will cook for them, and I wasn't about to mess with success. As long as I was single there was a block of Velveeta in my refrigerator! Alas, tonight I have Baby Swiss, Sharp Cheddar, Provolone and Parmesan, but no Velveeta...and there's a ring on my finger! No shame in cooking with a wide variety of ingredients!
