@Mike9 a somber reminder that our delicious dinners come at a perilous price.
So this happens when cheese is cooked too long and at a high temperature. It begins to separate so it becomes rubbery and greasy too. One thing you can do is add the top layer of cheese later in the cooking process, maybe 10 minutes before its ready to come out of the oven.I have all kinds of problems with pre shredded cheeses and flavor is the biggest one. It doesn't behave like fresh cheese - if you grate fresh cheese its fluffy for a few moments but then begins to clump...
So if I have a jar in the fridge I can just add to it every time?

How long does bacon fat last in the fridge?
