Thread: What to do with a small block of cream cheese?

    Default What to do with a small block of cream cheese?

    Of course I couldn't find the blasted thing about a month ago when I made
    some whole wheat cinnamon rolls and wanted to put cream cheese frosting on
    them! I did find an open block that I had used just a touch of. Can't
    remember what I used that for. It was all moldy. Apparently it will do
    that if you don't use it right away. It wasn't even close to being expired.

    Anyway... This block is going to expire in a couple of weeks so would like
    to use it up. But I don't want to make any sweets. I got chewed out for
    having too much of that sort of food in the house. I don't normally have
    them but I did have some for the holidays, mostly given to us as gifts.
    So... My standard cream cheese brownies won't do. Neither will the
    cinnamon rolls. Also can't put it on a nice glass dish and top with a can
    of shrimp and some cocktail sauce to be served with Ritz because seafood is
    out in this house.

    So... What sort of savory thing could I make with it? I did think of
    buying bagels but... Those are a hit or miss thing here. Sometimes they'll
    get eaten but a lot of times I wind up throwing out bagels that are like
    bricks. Help! Thanks!

    You can make vege-burgers with it. The cream cheese acts as the 'glue'.
    I can find the recipe if you wish.

    Thanks! But I don't think anyone here would eat those. Daughter is the
    vegetarian and doesn't like burgers of any kind.

    I substitute fat-free cream cheese in several salads such as potato or tuna
    for part of the mayonnaise that I used to use.

    Appetizer - cream cheese on a serving plate, top with crab meat, top
    with cocktail sauce. Serve with crackers, couldn't be simpler to
    prepare and is always a bit hit here. Let it sit at room temperature
    for a half hour before serviing (if you can wait that long).

    A cream cheese and jelly sandwich is one of my favorite snacks. I make
    it on toasted bread which softens up the cream cheese. It's a gooey
    mess but delicious.

    Cream cheese can substitute for sour cream and/or mayo and/or yogurt in
    some recipes. A partial substitute can work well, e.g., sub half the
    mayo in a recipe for cream cheese.

    Stuffed celery. You can put the cream cheese in plain, or add
    walnuts and/or sliced pimiento-stuffed olives, provided your
    family members are not allergic to those ingredients. If they
    are, forget that I mentioned them.

    Well you can make a 'variation' of noodles(fettucini, or pasta of choice)alfredo, or some other type pasta dish.
    You can also throw some into a beef stroganoff(yeah, I know; it's no longer strokin' off); so we'll call it pseudoStroganoff.
    Cream cheese and smoked salmon on a bagel.

    Use it straight as a face mask to moisturize dry skin, or mix it with
    sugar and honey to make a skin scrub.

    And you use an apostrophe in enchiladas, so it's not like you have a clue.

    Crab rangoon! Mix a tiny bit of crab into the cream cheese, then put it into
    a wonton wrapper. Fold it into a little triangular pouchy thing and seal
    with egg, then fry.
