Broccoli and cheese question

Hi all! Just joined and have a question about something. I love broccolli and cheese and I was getting everything I needed to make it and my Walmart didn't have the block style velveeta I love. They only had the slices. Will this work?

Never tried veveeta, and I don't know how you add the cheese.
If you lay it on the top with the block type to melt it, I don't think it'd be any different.
Welcome, Kayla.

Yeah, what's up with Wally World and sliced stuff? I wanted a hunk of salt pork a couple weeks ago and they only had sliced, but it still worked for me because after all, it was still salt pork.... get my drift, Kayla Bug? Yes, it will work.

Welcome!

Don't know about the velveeta, but wanted to welcome you to DC!

Yes, it will still work, won't be as creamy though. Once you mix it up with the brocolli and the cheese melt, you can add just a little milk to cream it up, if you want.

And welcome!!

Walmart doesn't keep Velveeta in the cooler. You'll find it on the shelf someplace...possibly by the pasta.

Now that you mentioned it, I have seen it near the rotel. I think they put it in places that it is used with, because, I have also seen it in the isle with chips.

The American cheese slices you got do not have as much moisture as Velveeta ... you can add a little splash of milk or cream to your sauce to compensate. Of course - a lot depends on if you are making a real cheese sauce or just melting the cheese on the broccoli. If you're just melting the cheese on the broccoli I wouldn't worry about it.

Did they ask about using American cheese?
Or is all cheese that is sliced in Walmart considered American and not Velveeta? Just trying to cross-reference your answer with what they asked.....
