cream cheese

I was just curious, since I love cream cheese what do you all eat yours with? I usually eat mine with a wasa fiber rye crisp bread, since they are ok for phases 2-4, but would love new things to try it with.

I second the meat and cream cheese roll up.

I also love mock danishes and like making cheese sauce with cream cheese. It's also fabulous in baked cauliflower.

I LOVE cream cheese! I have 2 favorite uses:

1. Simple turkey, cream cheese & spinach roll. If I'm feeling fancy and can afford the carbs, I put this in a LC tortilla and add a little avocado, tomato, bacon and sprouts.

2. Spinach, bacon & mushroom omelet or scramble with cream cheese.

And of course there's always cheesecake

Stir with fork

I take a couple Sesame "Cheeters" crackers and spread a little LC Peanut Butter on them, then take the above mixture and spread on top.............Y U M M Y ! ! What's left of cream cheese mixture I eat w/ spoon.

Wonderful & takes care of my sweet tooth.

Sometimes when Im in the mood for something "sweet" I cut off a little slice of cream cheese and eat it plain. It's delicious. It fills my craving without actually having to have something too sweet.

Just be careful. It can get addiciting. I limited myself to one serving a day, or it can get to be too much

I was comparing the Reg. Phil Cream Cheese with the 1/3 Less Fat Phil Cream Cheese at the Groc. - The 1/3 less fat has less Carb , less cal., less everything than the regular - taste no different to me, so I've been buying it.

Reg Phil Cream Cheese - Carbs: 1

1/3 Less Fat Phil Cream C. - Carbs - < 1
Thought that was odd.

Don't trust the labels on the package. When a label doesn't make sense, look up the food on ****** or the USDA website. USDA, especially, will give you accurate fractional values, rather than the vague rounded out values that are allowed on the labels.

When I want something sweet and filling, I take a LC tortilla, put a couple tablespoons of cream cheese down the middle, sprinkle the cream cheese with a packet of splenda, roll it up and place it in the microwave for about 20 seconds. I swear it's a LC twinkie.

This is not an original creation. Someone posted it awhile back and I've been eating it ever since.

I forgot one of my favorite desserts.

Bowl '0 Cheesecake

2 oz cream cheese
1 tblsp sour cream
sf Davinci's to taste (I like the fruity ones)

Soften the cream cheese in microwave for about 20 seconds. Cream it up with the sour cream (I use my wand mixer). Add in sf DV.

You can eat it right then, it's slightly warm and really good, but if you put it in the fridge for a few hours it thickens up and taste just like a creamy cheese cake!!

I spread cream cheese across a few pieces of corned beef, then wrap it around a pickle spear. It's a great snack!

Ahhhhh....cream cheese. One of my favorite foods

My absolute favorite way to eat it is to wrap it in a piece of Genoa salami. I could eat that all day.

I used to make an appetizer before LC that was basically the same thing, only I added garlic powder to the cream cheese, folded it into a genoa salami triangle and topped it with a grape...just cream cheese and salami is my LC simple solution

Mix cream cheese with canned crab meat and some garlic powder. Stuff some sauteed mushroom caps with mixture and heat up in oven a few minutes then top with mozzarella shreds. OR when we go camping, I wrap half a slice of bacon around the stuffed mushroom cap, secure with a toothpick and cook over the campfire until the bacon is done and crispy - YUM

Soften some cream cheese, either a 3 or 8-oz. package.
Beat with a mixer until light and fluffy.
Add some prepared horseradish (to taste) and beat to blend well.
Spread cream cheese mixture on deli roast beef slices and roll up.
If you want to slice these, it's easier if you chill them thoroughly before
attempting to cut them. The cream cheese needs to be just a little bit
firm to keep them flattening out when you slice them.

According to the USDA site, 1 ounce (28.35g) of cream cheese is .75g carbs.

1 ounce (28.35g) of low fat cream cheese is 1.98g carbs.

1 ounce (28.35g) of fat free cream cheese is 1.64g carbs.

I tend to believe the USDA site more than the labels.
