Question Laughing Cow


So, I've heard alot of people talk about Laughing Cow cheese but I have never tried it. I think I'm going to pick some up tonight... what the heck do I do with it? Is it like a cream cheese consistency? Do you slice it and put it on sandwiches? Crackers? Those of you who use it and love it - tell me how you eat it!

Yes, it's like cream cheese, wrapped in little individual wedges. It comes in Swiss-cheese, French onion and garlic/herb flavors, light and regular. i spread it on crackers or on English muffins, but I suppose you can use it any way you use (any other) cream cheese (what does "cream cheese" mean, that it's creamy or that it's made with cream? )

I love it and sometimes, if it is close to meal time and i am REALLY hungry, i will just pop a wedge or two in my mouth and eat it plain...keeps me from OVER eating at dinner...gives my hands, mouth, and stomach something to do to tide me over. I also spread it on light wheat thins.
You really cant beat the creamy texture for a small 35 cals per wedge, if you get the light.
I dont like the french onion but i love the regular flavor.

I use mine on celery and it's good on crackers. I also make an alfredo like sauce with it. I got the recipe from the South Beach section.

I used to cook up some turkey sausage links or patties and eat them with honey mustard. Then I wanted to cut out sugary stuff, so I ditched the honey mustard and started using the Laughing Cow light wedges as a condiment with my turkey sausage. This was especially yummy with the garlic & herb flavor. YUM!

Oh, and I've also read about people mashing them up into tuna or chicken salad instead of mayo. I haven't tried it, but it sounds like another good use of the wedges!

Hee! Jill, I thought I was the only one. I love Shady Brook Farms turkey meatballs, and when it's cold and yucky outside, I'll have a bowl of hot meatballs with some cubes of Laughing Cow. Yum.

I get laughing cow at Kroger. I use it on celery, cracker, sandwiches, bagels, rolled up in chicken, on a hamburger (spread on the bun). I recently made spinach pesto and melted it with the pesto over the pasta. Also anywhere you would put cream cheese you can use it. It is so yummy.

Albertsons usually has it and Super Walmart does too. I love Laughing Cow cheese. Their swiss is so tasty.

Oh! Btw, at both stores it isn't with all the normal cheese. You can find it with the brie, goat cheese, gouda and the like.

A few things I do with Laughing Cow (I buy both the regular and garlic herb)

-with crackers or on toast
-with baby carrots
-spread on a sandwich instead of miracle whip or the like (which I don't like anyway)
-dropped into scrambled eggs (beat egg, microwave ~1min, drop in cheese, finish microwaving ~1 min)
-simple 'alfredo' sauce for pasta or veggies - cheese plus a little milk and garlic pepper, microwave

um...that's about it. Funny, I don't use it that often but you'd think I do from that list! :-)

I usually have it with raw wedges - I take tiny nibbles from the cheese with bite from the veggie and it makes the veggies much more appealing that way. My favorite combo is a kohlrabi and a Laughing Cow triangle.
