Grating cheese is NOT one of my favorite kitchen activities. It gets tiring, especially when it comes to cleaning up the mess afterwards. Here are a few simple tips to help you grate cheese without the mess!
1. Freeze your cheese for 20 minutes before grating. It won’t crumble as much.
2. Spray your grater with nonstick spray. The grated cheese will slide right off and make cleanup much easier!
3. Place the grater in a large shallow food container before grating. This is an easy way to catch all of the cheese without it falling off a plate, but it still gives you plenty of room to maneuver your hands. (I use one like this Rubbermaid container.)
