Cheesy Rice: Cheddease Powder Mix

Jenny at Jenny Mac's Lip Smack blogged about this cheese powder mix and I was a lucky one to win a bag of it! I did a search for recipes using the cheese powder and only found just a few. Not really sure what I was going to make with it, I decided one night to add some with a little milk to my rice! Mmm, it was good! Reminded me of this stuff.

Cheesy Rice
2 Tbl canola oil
1 Tbl crushed garlic
1/2 onion diced
1 C long grain white rice
2 C chicken broth
salt and pepper to taste
1 Tbl butter
3 Tbl white cheddease powder
1/4 cup or so of milk
Parsely for garnish

Heat 2 TBL oil in a skillet. Saute onion until translucent, add garlic and rice until a little browned. Add chicken broth and seasonings and butter and bring to a boil, cover, then simmer for 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork, add cheedease and milk, stir. Let cook for a minute then add parsley.

Below is some more info I found about this cheese powder. I've gotta try that popcorn recipe, we're big popcorn snackers here.

Cheddease Cheese Powder
cheese sauce:
Blend 1/4c. cheese powder and 2 T. cornstarch in saucepan. Stir in ½ c. milk and 1 T. butter.
Place on medium heat, stirring with whip until thick and heated through.
Use also as a Soup Base, in Casseroles, Potato dishes, and Macaroni and Cheese.

On Popcorn
3 T. butter, melted
¼ C. (or more) Cheddease
cheese powder
¼ t. mustard powder
¼ t. cayenne powder
4 C. popped popcorn

In a large bowl. combine the butter, cheddar cheese powder, mustard
powder, cayenne pepper, and the popcorn. Season with salt and pepper, to
taste, and toss to combine. Serve immediately.
