If you are anything like me you stock up on cream cheese when it goes on sale in December. Then I stash it in my freezer and wonder what in the world I’m going to do with all that cream cheese! Thanks to the participants of Iron Chef Mom’s Cream Cheese Battle, we have the answer! Here are over 50 recipes for using cream cheese!
It was so hard to choose which recipes to include, so I just used them all! From dips to desserts, cream cheese is a yummy and popular ingredient for any meal and any dish. Try not to drool….
Chocolate Biscoff Cheesecake from The Chef Next Door looks absolutely scrumptious!
Anything with buffalo sauce gets my vote and this Buffalo Chicken Dip from Home Cooking Memories is perfect for a tailgate.
How adorable are these Rainbow Cheesecake Hearts from Hungry Happenings?!
I definitely need to try Cream Cheese Spaghetti Sauce from The Reheomesteaders next time we make pasta. It looks so creamy and delicious.
Chocolate Cinnamon Roll Pancakes from Half Baked Harvest are a fun way to add a little cream cheese to breakfast.
Cream Cheese Scalloped Potatoes from I Heart Eating would make a great side dish at Easter.
Of course you can’t ask for cream cheese recipes without including red velvet:
Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Coconut Frosting from The Mommy Games
Bacon makes everything better and this Bacon Wrapped Cream Cheese Chicken from Who Needs A Cape is now on my menu!
Another great combo: Oreos and cream cheese is put together in Oreo Layer Dessert by Living Cleverly
