    I have used this cheese on numerous occasions. In trail omelets, on burritos, red beans and rice and anything else that would benefit from a genuine cheddar cheese flavor and texture.
    Rehydrates within 15 minutes with cool water in a ziplock while you're cooking everything else. A bit pricey, but totally worth the reduced weight and flavor.
