cream cheese spread

I recently sent my husband to the grocery store, and he bought cream cheese spread instead of regular cream cheese. Does anyone know of a recipe that uses cream cheese spread as an ingredient? I'd like to use it up somehow!

Michelle_d - is this the one that is in the little tubs? If so, I have used these on bagels, toast or to make sandwiches with. If it is the plain kind you can add fruit or seafood to it. You can also spread it on lunchmeat and make rollups.

We use it in place of butter or mayo on sandwiches. Yummy with some herbs added. Can also mix it really well and use as a dip, with whatever you like added. Tastes FANTASTIC with sweet chilli sauce poured over it and served with crackers.Hmm.
I might just need to go and buy some, 'cos now I'm hungry and my mouth is watering!

I've used it in place of the "bricks" before-- in any recipe that calls for softening the cream cheese prior to adding it to the recipe. From what I could tell, the tubs are just softer versions of the bricks.

I use it on bagels, too.

As long as you use the same volume called for-ounces usually--it substitutes just like the "bricks" which are 8oz. In a baked recipe this is expecially important. If it is a flavored variety that could be a yummy way to try something new.--Raspberry for cream cheese brownies. YUM! I may get some just to try that!

I agree with everyone here. You can use it the same as cream cheese. You can also use the spread on bagels, toast, and sandwiches. You can also put it on fruit as well. You can also add fruit to it and put it on bread as well. If you like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, you can add it to them along with the jelly and peanut butter.

I really like to add cream cheese to my scrambled eggs! YUM...

All you need to do is when you break your eggs and scramble them in a bowl, drop in several "clumps" of cream cheese (spread or solid is fine) and also add fresh or dried thyme for taste. When you scramble the eggs, the cheese melts and creates a delicious, creamy breakfast meal and the thyme makes it very savory and delicious!
