I use 2 blocks of cream cheese and 1 cup sour cream and 1 egg.

I have done taco...add taco seasonings, beef, tomato, onion, olives, etc.
sausage and cheese
pizza...Italian seasonings, and your favorite toppings mixed in
broccoli and bacon

Bake 350 for 45-60 min. til cooked through and bubbly

Two I've wanted to try but haven't:

Blue Cheese Cheesecake with Baby Greens, Candied Walnuts and a Pear Vinaigrette Recipe : Emeril Lagasse : Recipes : Food Network

This one is more savory/sweet but could be easily adjusted to lowcarb anyway.

drj...I found the mention of these that i first saw and it was your post in the high fat menu thread. :)

Hope you can find a combo you like.

These have been a God send as a side for the small, puny, little, almost non-existent, piece of meat I can have for dinner. Or AS dinner if I eat too many eggs or bacon for breakfast.

drjlocarb 11-15-2012 06:23 PM

Oh dear, muffins shouldn't take that long. No matter, they should still taste OK.

dazygyrl 11-15-2012 06:51 PM

How did these turn out?
If you made them again, how long did you cook them?
Could you add some meat to it?
Thank you!

Search for "Alton Brown Savory Cheesecake". It so happens I made this yesterday! It is basically a cream cheese and sour cream base with smoked fish (I used trout . . . a long fish story there!) and chives. It was delicious, even though I did not eat the crushed bagel chip bottom crust.

Herbed Cheesecakes

Southern Living AUGUST 1999

Yield: 8 servings

Ingredients

1 cup round, buttery cracker crumbs
3 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1 (16-ounce) container sour cream, divided
2 (3-ounce) packages goat cheese

3 large eggs
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
2 tablespoons minced fresh thyme
Fresh spinach leaves
Garnish: fresh thyme sprigs

Preparation

Stir together cracker crumbs and butter; press evenly into bottoms of 4 (4-inch) springform pans.

Beat cream cheese, 1 cup sour cream, and goat cheese at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating until blended. Stir in chives and minced thyme, and pour mixture into pans.

Bake at 325 for 30 minutes or until almost set. Cool on a wire rack. Cover and chill 8 hours, or freeze up to 1 month.

Spread tops evenly with remaining sour cream; remove from pans, and cut into wedges. Serve wedges on spinach leaves with assorted crackers. Garnish, if desired.

Note: Cheesecake may be baked in 1 (8-inch) springform pan; bake at 325 for 40 minutes.
