What Do You Do With Your Laughing Cow Cheese?

I spread mine on cocopop cakes or mini rice cakes, put it in the middle of my burgers, add it to my DD eggbeater omelets, spread it on sliced turkey or ham to make roll ups, use it for a spread on crackers, mini toast or cracker crisps, stuff into celery, or use it as a sandwich spread with lunch meat.

What do you do with your Laughing Cow Cheese?

Jenn you're going to be hooked on the HG recipe lol
I like it in celery, on burgers, the HG alfredo was really good, mixed with just a touch of almond milk and melted for a cheesy dip for broccoli(or poured over as a sauce on any veggie).
I'm thinking melted in a cup of chicken broth with the dried veggies would make a nice creamy soup, too.

Found this recipe this weekend, going to try it this week!

. Use either mushrooms, banana peppers or bell peppers. With mushrooms, take out the stems & just use the caps. With peppers, remove the seeds & slice lengthwise into halves or quarters. Fill the insides with the laughing cow cheese flavor of your choice. Optional: top each with a piece of bacon (uncooked), cut to fit.
Place on a cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 12-20 minutes (depends on your oven; should be well-cooked but not singed).


1 white mushroom has 3 calories, so 10 mushrooms with 1 wedge cheese is only 60 calories! Great side dish with a piece of baked chicken!!

I slice it onto my GG's Scandinavian Crispbread or I melt it into my omelette and serve it with a La Tortilla Factory Low-Carb Whole Wheat Tortilla and Pico Pica hot sauce.

Sometimes I just eat it plain!

Dottie, what does "HG" stand for?

and where would one find dried veggies?

Thanks!

Hungry Girl and I found Harmony House brand soup mix veggies on amazon. They're good, dried veggies only, no salt or anything added.

I often have it squished in between several deli ham slices or on cut veggies.

I like it plain too, and one wedge makes a great low calorie but filling snack on DDs!

FYI: I went to Aldi's a couple days ago, and their version of LCC was $2 cheaper than at my regular grocery store! $1.49 vs 3.49 (or maybe even $3.59 or 3.79...whatever it is, I couldn't afford it! I'm a little bit in love with Aldi's!

I top a Bran-a-crisp cracker (14 cals) with one wedge of chipotle queso laughing cow, and then top with a tbs of sugar free apricot jam. 50 calories and so yummy and filling.


I stir a wedge of blue cheese laughing cow into a stirfry of veggies and shiritaki noodles. I then sprinkle the top with some buffalo wing sauce--if I have the calories available, I add a few diced buffalo chicken meatballs.

I mix one hardboiled egg with one chipotle queso laughing cow. A very filling 100 calorie snack.

I add 1 wedge plain LCC to a pack of shiritaki rice, a little sf maple syrup. Nuke and stir til cheese is melted--"oatmeal" sub.

there are a lot more. gotta think!

They didn't have all the flavors everyone is talking about, but their "light" wedges are only 25 cal each...10 less than Laughing Cow!

Ooo...I love Aldi's! I was just there this afternoon. I'll have to keep an eye out for these on my next trip.

I like the blue cheese LCs spread on a CocoPop and then topped with a few thin slices of turkey. I use the Swiss ones on my Boca vegan burgers...no condiment needed. I really like the idea of using them to make a little sauce though. May have to give that a try sometime. Thanks for the tip!

I have the Aldi's brand too - bought 2 pkgs at my last trip! Just haven't tried it yet because I still have LC and a WW one to use up.

Anyway, so far I just spread it on toasted low cal bread. But you all have given a lot of good ideas to try!

Today for lunch, I had 2 oz. sauer kraut, 1 Hebrew National FF Frank, sliced, and 1 wedge of Laughing Cow (Light Mozzerella, Sundried Tomato and Basil) melted on top. Really good for only 85 calories!

so many cool things to do with them, I usually go to the fridge and gobble one right up. I hate the light ones though and haven seen the garlic and herb one. I like melba toasts with cheese on it though

On my down day yesterday I made a delicious wrap for about 220 calories. I started with one piece of bacon in a pan (how could this story end badly now?) and then, when it was almost done, threw in 90 calories worth of grilled chicken strips. I warmed up one low carb tortilla in the microwave with one wedge of Laughing Cow on it as it warmed. Spread the LC on the tortilla and let the chicken and bacon, which I placed on top, melt the rest. Delicious!

That sounds good! I'm a lettuce fiend, so I'd probably add a cup or 2 of shredded lettuce to it to make me feel like it's "greener" lol

Yes, I think lettuce and tomato would have been great! Or skip the wrap and just put it on lettuce. (BTW, the chili was awesome--had it for UD and DD, just with no cheese yesterday! LOL Hubby had it x2 as well. Thank you!)
