“This came from Giant Food's Summer 2010 issue of Healthy Ideas. It's recommended for pretzel dipping and if there is leftover sauce, it can be added to cooked macaroni for a fast and easy mac and cheese! I'm sure that margarine or another solid butter substitute like Earth Balance would also work. I would prefer cheddar or a colby-cheddar blend over American, but I am posting the recipe as it is.”
