  • Velveeta Substitute .... Need information - please

    I don't buy Velveeta cheese - it is so darn expensive (well I guess, all cheeses are).  What type of cheese is it? Cheddar, american or? I have a recipe for homemade spaghettio's and it calls for 6-ounces of shredded Velveeta cheese.  Can I use something else in place of the Velveeta?  How much cheese is 6-ounces anyway?  Thank you....

    Thank you for the recipe for the substitute.  What does the D mean in (D, TNT)?  What do you do with it after that? Pour it in a loaf pan or ? How much cheese shredded is 6-ounces?  Thank you....

    I would think grated and shredded would be about the same weight wise.

    Nancy thank you so much.  That means 6-ounces of shredded cheese would equal 1 1/2 cups!....
