Growing up in a household with two shift working parents often meant dinner time was spent rushing to get food on the table. Grocery lists were made with the easy meals in mind that included fast versions of our most memorable classic recipes. Cheese was practically a staple in every easy meal. There is nothing that compares to digging into a baked mac and cheese with melted cheese stringing between spoon and casserole; my siblings and I would compete to see how long we could get our cheese strong before it would snap back into place. These days life is just as busy; the kids keep me running from one activity to the next and now my grocery list includes easy ingredients like the Kraft Shredded Cheese with a Touch of Philadelphia.
I make a lot of recipes with cheese because it not only brings back a lot of memories but it creates new traditions with my own children, traditions I hope one day they will carry on with their own families. I wanted to try a new recipe for an easy cheese loaf pull apart rolls with a cheese that has the string factor even better than my childhood memories, this Herb and Garlic Cheese Roll Loaf. The new Kraft Shredded Cheese with a Touch of Philadelphia in 3 delicious flavours: Creamy Mozza, Creamy Herb & Garlic, and Creamy Mexicana was perfect for this recipe with the simplicity of shredded and flavoured cheese, it cut my cooking time and gave the loaf a creamy cheese melt to remember.
The hardest part of the dough recipe is waiting for the dough to rise but if you don’t have time to wait, you could use a cinnamon roll dough from a can and replace the rest of the ingredients with Kraft Creamy Herb & Garlic Shredded Cheese with a Touch of Philadelphia from you dairy grocery isle. This loaf is a mouth watering recipe on it’s own or as an accent to any meal: pasta comes to mind. As you know pasta is a weakness of mine but bread is equally as tempting; add in the creamy melted cheese and let’s just say, it was hard to stop.
I made my recipe into a pull apart still loaf but you could simply bake just as you would cinnamon buns with added cheese sprinkled on top. Remember if you are using a premade dough to follow the cooking instructions on the can.
The drizzled butter soaked up into the dough, the perfect base to the bubbling cheese that seemed to ooze out of every fold.
There are numerous ways you can incorporate the new Kraft Shredded Cheese with a Touch of Philadelphia flavours into your recipes. I have a package of Creamy Mexicana in my fridge with the next after-school nachos in mind.
What is a go-to easy recipe of yours that the new Kraft Shredded Cheese with a Touch of Philadelphia flavours would benefit?
