think they are just as much flavor though as the 2% when you get the kraft slices, but I've noticed it has to be the slices and it has to be kraft. :) The kraft fat free shredded cheeses don't do as well.
- You are so right! I have hard time finding anything but American Kraft fat free slices too, even at WalMart. Best I can find is 2%, and that's rare. Never the mozzarella. Hmm!
I agree, I use the Kraft Fat Free when I can find it too, but the stores here don't sell it often. I used to be able to get the fat free mozzarella slices too by kraft and they were great in all JoAnna's Italian recipes calling for the 2%, but now I can't hardly find them fat free mozzarella slices by kraft at all.

YES YES! I'm cooking through the 'Man in Mind' cookbook and posting recipes as we make them and like them. I am not a sauerkraut fan and I LOVE this! The only thing I'd do differently is not to use previously frozen hot dogs. Last year I got a whopping deal on hot dogs, about 20 pkgs for free (mostly fat free and low fat), so I froze them. They get rubbery in the freezer, and thus are rubbery in the cooked dish. So next time I would not use hot dogs that had been frozen first, and the texture would be out of this world. Also, I used the Kraft Fat Free American cheese slices; they melt and taste just like the 2% cheese slices so we slashed some calories/fat there. Kraft is the only brand of fat free slices I have found that melts smoothly like this so I wouldn't use another brand (-personally). My husband ate two servings of this!
