The many uses of cream cheese

Cream cheese can be used for every meal of your day: bagel with cream cheese for breakfast, burger for lunch, a cheesecake for a snack and then end your day with a delicious dish of mac and cheese. The only limit to the versatility of cream cheese is the chef’s creativity. The possibilities range from a simple spread on crackers to ice cream, meatballs and more. It gives a nice creamy feel to your sauces and frostings or can just be used to bind your dish.

What is cream cheese?

Cream cheese stands apart from other cheeses. Its taste can be used to enhance your dishes but will not overpower them. It has been widely popularized by Amish Pennsylvania Dutch cuisine, so much so that some dishes remain staples today, such as bagel with cream for breakfast. It is traditionally paired with lox or capers, but its neutral taste makes it the foundation of a wide range of pairing and dishes.
