Favorite Recipe using Sour Cream?

I have about 1 1/2 cups of sour cream that I need to use up soon and can't think of anything to make. I looked in the recipe room but there were just too many recipes that came up using sour cream. I made a cheesecake for DH the other day, so anything other than a cheesecake would be great. TIA for any suggestions!!

How about loaded broccoli? Steam some broccoli..then add some grated cheddar and cooked bacon pieces and sour cream on the side..

I just made a quick dip with a bit of sour cream and some of Mrs. Dash's garlic and herb
sprinkle. Add some veggies and there you are.

Here's another recipe: You can replace the pineapple with other LC fruit..

Saw this in a cookbook..haven't made it, but it looks great. For those who can tolerate pineapple

1 small box of SF vanilla instant pudding
8 ounces crushed pineapple in its own juice
1 Tbs. Splenda
2 cups sour cream

One baked LC pie crust that has been cooled.

Mix the pudding with the pineapple, add the Splenda, then fold in the sour cream until all mixed well. Pour into LC pie crust..Refrigerate..

I need to use up some sour cream too, but have no sweetener (except honey) on hand.

What about a good casserole or quiche? Might cruise on over to LindaSue's website....

The Artichoke Chicken recipe in this forum uses sour cream.

Thanks for the suggestions! I have artichokes and homemade mayo I need to use up too. Looks like that's what I'll make. Thanks!! That dessert sounds wonderful too, that will be my next "use up the sour cream quick" recipe!

BEEF STROGONOFF >>>>>> 2 servings

Use either leftover roast beef or slice some partially frozen round steak (or similar) into 1/8 " slices. About 8 ozs.
Season w/little salt/pepper & Quick saute in HOT butter JUST til pink is gone. Remove from pan.
Add into same pan, 1 med. thinly sliced onion and either a can of mushrooms or about a dozen sliced fresh ones.
Saute til softened.
Add back the meat & heat thru then stir in about 1 cup sour cream & turn off heat....don't boil.
Serve over cauliflower "rice" or Fr. style string beans.

I also add sour cream instead of cream cheese to the Black Soy bean brownies and we love em. SC makes all baked goods moist and rich tasting.

[COLOR="DarkSlateGray"]Hi BA...
Sour cream and butter go well on hot cooked vegetables - especially, cauliflower, or broccoli, or cabbage, or turnips etc.

We do cabbage and kielbasa at least weekly, and it's always better with the butter and sour cream added.

I make both Chicken Paprikash and Hungarian Goulash, They are both basically Paprika flavored stews with sour cream stirred in at the end. Sour cream makes a great sauce for many dishes. Just finish the cooking and then stir in. Don't bring it to a boil again once the sour cream is added.

I see this thread is a bit old so I thought I'd bump it. I got some interesting ideas from these posts but wondered if anyone else has ideas. I am hooked on sour cream lately.

How about a vegetable dip? You could probably increase the sour cream and decrease the cream cheese to use more of the sour cream.

Smoked Salmon Dip

Makes 1 ¾ cups

8 ounces cream cheese, softened
½ cup sour cream
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons capers
2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
4 ounces smoked salmon, coarsely chopped
Salt, pepper, & garlic salt to taste

Combine first 6 ingredients in a food processor and pulse until blended. Stir in salmon, salt, pepper, and garlic salt.

Serve with vegetables, breadsticks, or crackers.

This is from Linda Sue's website and it's really good. The topping is outstanding.

CHICKEN AND SPINACH PARMESAN
2 cups diced cooked chicken
10 ounces frozen spinach, drained well
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded

Arrange chicken and spinach in a greased 8x8" baking dish. Salt to taste. Mix remaining ingredients and spread over chicken. Bake, uncovered at 350 º for 40 minutes or until top is nicely browned. Don't skimp on the baking. The topping needs to be quite brown for good flavor.

I got a chicken paprikash recipe many moons ago from this site, probably from you, Soobee.

I sauté diced onion and cubed chicken breast until cooked through. While they are sautéing, add some chicken broth and lots of good paprika. There should be a nice thick red sauce when the chicken is done. Reduce heat, and stir in a generous portion of sour cream. Season with salt and pepper. Serve over rice for non lc, roasted green beans for me. So, so good!

I've got a recipe and pic for Cherry Chocolate Chip Sour Cream Popsicles on my blog. I also switched out the cherries for blueberries, which tasted great, too.


Cherry Chocolate Chip Sour Cream Popsicles
(my very own experiment, makes 7 in my small molds)

2/3c full fat sour cream
1/2c unsweetened almond & coconut milk blend
2tsp homemade vanilla
16 drops vanilla stevia
15 frozen dark sweet cherries, quartered
3T chopped dark chocolate

Mix all. Pour into molds. Freeze. Eat. Yum.
