It is not difficult to make tender and soft processed cheese at home. And if possible, it is best to use homemade cottage cheese and sour cream for cooking. They have a high fat content and processed cheese will be much tastier. You can use various additions to the dish if you wish: herbs, mushrooms, and your favorite seasonings.

The recipe for thick processed cheese was published on one of the cooking blogs (smachnoteka) on Instagram.
