Cream Cheese ideas

I always have at least one package of cream cheese in my fridge.    The possibilities are almost endless with an 8 ounce package.     And then of course the various iterations of cheese, from full fat, to low fat to fat free.     They're not interchangeable, but close to it.
Here's some of the things I do with my cream cheese.
  • Add it to mashed potatoes for an extra bit of richness
  • Make cheese balls, with all kinds of flavourings
  • Make Smoked Salmon Spread
  • Bake a Cheesecake
  • Pour  Mango Chutney over it and serve with crackers
  • Make Crab Rangoons, or just put some inside some wonton wrappers and fry or bake them
  • Make a mock Alfredo sauce with the low fat version
  • Make a Bologna Cake for a fun appetizer
  • Mix with sausage and stuff some jalapeno's
  • Add to some cheese and stuff some mushrooms
Get the drift?
