Okay, so I am going to attempt to make some cheeze. However, recipes call for onion powder and garlic powder... but I only have fresh onion and minced garlic. What sort of ratio am I looking at? Help please!<br><br><br><br>
TA!

I beleive 1 clove of garlic is equal to 1 tsp garlic powder. I'm not sure about the onion, maybe 1/3 C minced onion is equal to 1 tsp onion powder. Maybe that would work?

The garlic sounds good... but I'd be worried about the difference in mass for the onion... I just like using fresh stuff rather than powdered! LOL And of course nothing is open for me to buy anything today... I'll wait a bit and see if there are any more suggestions, but thanks punkmommy! That's a start!

sorry if i missed your post last night...i was all distracted. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
fresh garlic and onion have a much sharper flavour than the dried stuff, so i'd be careful. i'd use roughly equivilant amounts.<br><br><br><br>
when i've made "cheeze" before, i've noticed that although the garlic and onion powder definitely give the "cheeze" a little more <i>zing</i>, they aren't even really that neccessary...they are included in such small amounts. you could try substituting other spicey flavours...like a pinch of wasabi powder or dry mustard powder, or cayenne pepper? even ground white or black pepper would be good.<br><br><br><br>
let us know how it turns out.
