When you're staring at a wedge of cheese at the store it can be hard to figure out exactly how much to buy for a recipe that calls for a specific amount of grated cheese. To make cooking with cheese easier, use the following measurements as a general guideline:
- 1/4 lb. cheese = 1 cup grated
- 1/3 lb. cheese = 1 1/2 cups grated
- 1/2 lb. cheese = 2 cups grated
Just remember: When in doubt always buy more than you think you'll need. Extra cheese is never a bad thing!
