Bring out the Fun with this Cheez Whiz Recipe
Top Chef‘s inventive Richard Blais makes his own “Cheese Wizard” and serves it from one of many iSi whippers at Flip Burger Boutique in Atlanta. The Philly burger “wit whiz” – as the sandwich that inspired it is ordered in Philadelphia – can be found on the menu filled with unique creations.
The original Cheez Whiz out of a jar is a cousin to Easy Cheese sprayed out of a can. While our tastes have mostly outgrown processed foods we have not outgrown the fun. Richard shared his recipe via a Twitter DM (private direct message) for his Cheese Wizard served at Flip.
CHEESE WIZARD by Chef Richard Blais
Ingredients for 1 pint Creative Whip:
200 grams whole milk
100 grams Velveeta
100 grams white cheddar
3 drops roast beef extract
Heat milk to a bare simmer. Add Velveeta and cheddar. Stir until melted. Strain. Cool. Pour into a 1 pint Creative Whip. Charge with 3 cream chargers. Shake 3 to 5 times. Test consistency. Serve on your own Philly sandwich inspired burger!
You can also use your favorite real cheese in a Mornay sauce (just a fancy name for cheese sauce). Just let it chill before you pour it into your iSi Creative Whip. Charge with one cream charger. Shake three to five times. Test its consistency. Serve on burgers or baked potatoes, steamed broccoli or roasted cauliflower, toasted baguette slices or just plain crackers.
