The average packaged, presliced slice of cheese weighs about 0.6 ounces. The dimensions, thickness and type of cheese impact the weight of each slice.

The convenience of sliced cheese is often worth the added cost. Presliced cheese saves time in the kitchen and adds delicious flavor to many recipes. Place a slice of pepper jack cheese to melt atop a grilled burger for an extra burst of flavor. Take grilled cheese to the next level by using sliced Havarti and sharp cheddar. Turn that grilled cheese into a delicious panini by adding thinly sliced apple and red onion, crispy bacon, and turkey slices.
