Since you have kindled my interest I checked German websites for receipts. I found some advice on chefkoch.de. According to their forum Velveeta and cheddar are exchangeable and allegedly even the Subway restaurants in Germany use cheddar instead.
By the way, in German cooks love to use all sorts of cheese for gratin. Especially potatoes and cauliflower can be delicious "au gratin".
Joachim, that is so interesting. Thank you for passing that information along!
