Shredding cheese at home is often a budget-friendly alternative to storebought and makes for a creamier melt. The Better Homes & Gardens Test Kitchen secret is to start with cold cheese. You can use whatever shredder you have on hand -- whether it's a box grater, flat shredder, a food processor, or even a vegetable peeler. 

For cheddar and other sharp cheeses, make sure your cheese is cold. Use a flat shredder over a piece of waxed paper, which makes for less mess and easy transfer.

For Parmesan or other hard cheeses, you can use the vegetable peeler to make large shreds of cheese. 

To save money, you can shred cheese in large batches and store portions in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer. Sprinkle cheese on your favorite dishes as needed to get that creamy fresh meltiness you love.
