I never thought I could simply add
…make an ordinary dish– well, not quite ordinary? YES, adding some
takes it up a notch! Here are some ideas (but do feel free to experiment!).
Omelets & Scrambled Eggs
For extra creamy omelets or scrambled eggs, add 2 Tbsp. Philadelphia Light Cream Cheese Spread to 4 eggs; whisk or stir until combined.
Baked Potatoes & Sweet Potatoes
Top baked potatoes or sweet potatoes with Philadelphia Light Cream Cheese Spread; 1 Tbsp. per potato. Sprinkle with chopped chives or fresh dill.
For fluffy mashed potatoes, cut 6 potatoes into chunks and cook. Drain, mash and add 1/3 cup Philadelphia Light Chive & Onion Cream Cheese.
When making fajitas, spread a small amount of Philadelphia Cream Cheese Spread instead of sour cream on flour tortillas.
Cream Cheese Icing (especially good on carrot cake)
Beat 1 pkg (250 g) Philadelphia Brick Cream Cheese, softened, with 1/4 cup melted butter. Gradually add 2 cups icing sugar, 1 tsp lemon juice, 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, and 1/2 tsp finely grated lemon rind; beat until smooth
Pastry Cream or Filling (for baking)
Blend 1 pkg (250 g) Philadelphia Strawberry Light Cream Cheese Spread with 1/4 cup icing sugar. Use as a pastry cream or filling for baking.
