  • 1 teaspoon gelatin
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 12 ounces Colby cheese
  • 2 ounces Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 tablespoons dry milk powder
  • 2/3 cup milk


  • Prepare gelatin by sprinkling gelatin over water in a small dish. The gelatin will set up in a couple of minutes. Grate 12 ounces Colby cheese. In either a heavy-duty mixer or food processor add the grated Colby cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, paprika, and dry milk powder. 
  • Heat 2/3 cup of milk until just below a scald add gelatin to milk and whisk gelatin in until it has dissolved completely. Pour warm milk into either a heavy-duty mixer or food processor. Process cheese until smooth. Line a small loaf pan with plastic wrap. Pour cheese into loaf pan. Cover the top with plastic wrap. Place cheese in the refrigerator and allow to gel. It will take about 3 hours for the cheese to set up. 
  • This makes 1 one pound loaf of cheese. Please note, in the video I left out the paprika, I suggest you add it. When setting up for the shoot I simply forgot the paprika.
