Cream cheese is product that has been around for a long time.
It is something that can usually be found in my refrigerator.
I have found many different, delicious uses for it.
Tonight I thought I would share a few of them, just in case you ever need to prepare something quickly.
I prepared this dish for a family today, along with a cooked chuck roast.
I cooked the Penne pasta, drained it, added a pack of cream cheese that I cut up and stirred into the hot pasta. I also added 1/2 cup of shredded sharp cheese, a can of sweet corn and a bag of cooked mixed vegtables.
I covered the top of the casserole with a pack of crispy onions.
So easy and so good!
Recently we were invited to a party and were asked to bring a snack.
This is one of our simple favorites.
Once again, I will share it in case you are ever asked to bring the same and you don't have much time.
Two cans of Hormel Chili with no beans.
Put in a skillet and heat.
Add 3/4 package of cream cheese and stir until melted. Serve warm.
Along with a bag of tortilla chips and the snack is complete.
To make the above warm dip even better, I sometimes add 1/2 cup of this Mexican shredded four cheese and stir until melted.
I also create this quick, easy snack too.
Cover one pack of cream cheese with pepper jelly.
Serve with crackers.
A few other ideas involving cream cheese;
Blend shredded Cheddar and deviled ham with cream cheese. Form into a ball; or pack in a crock and coat with toasted chopped walnuts.
Serve with crackers or pretzels.
Blend with a can of deviled ham and coarse-grained Dijon mustard and put in little crock.
Serve with little sweet pickles and crackers of your choice.
If you find a package of cream cheese(I often use the one with 1/3 less fat), and you aren't sure how you want to use it, hopefully one of these ideas may help.
Thanks for stopping by.
