American cheese can be found at almost every American household. We use it to make our sandwiches, our burgers and pretty much anything where cheese plays a key role.
American cheese used to be known as “rattrap cheese” or just “rat cheese”!What distinguishes American cheese from others is that it can be found in orange, yellow or white in color and mild in flavor, with a medium-firm consistency and melts easily.
Despite the fact of being “American”, this cheese was invented by the British colonists upon their arrival in America. Yes, it was invented in American soil, but the British are the ones who take the credit for the idea and the invention itself.
However, we are the ones who enjoy it the most! So go to your kitchen and make yourself some macaroni and cheese! Enjoy!
