First of all nobody is a born loser :) have you tryed to use low fat cheese or soy cheese? They both taste great and I found that the soy cheese melts great. I use it in mt egg beaters eggs.

Well born loser is a play on words as in losing weight. :) And Yes I have used lowfat cheese in recipes and like it. I just did not have any when I made this today. Although 20 grams for dinner is not to bad when you watch it the rest of the day. Hope you try it and enjoy it. I have not tried soy cheese and will take your sugestion. Where do you get it?

Actually, the soy cheese is pretty good. They have a pepper jack and cheddar jalapeno which are real good (IMO).
