- use in recipes that call for cheez whiz or serve on crackers enjoy.
Very nice; tastes pretty much how I remembered it. I scaled this way down and somewhat guessed at the proportions, but it worked out. Also, no dried mustard, so I used a bit of dijon (n yellow mustard either). Probably a more sophisticated "whiz" than the original, but still nicely spreadable, with just the right flavour.
It's been many years since I've had Cheez Whiz, so I don't remember exactly how it tastes, but it seems to replicate it pretty well, and if anything, this recipe tastes great. I reduced it to 10 servings, made as directed, and served warm with nachos and chopped jalepenos.
I made this for my boys as they like cheez whiz on their hot dogs and for nachos. I followed the recipe as written. My boys loved it. This was easy to make but it does make A LOT!
