Win Laughing Cow Cheese!

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

Cheese can sometimes get a bad rep for being high in calories and fat, but not all cheeses are created equal. Since most of the fat in cheese is saturated (the artery clogging kind), it’s important to opt for low fat varieties. I’m a cheese lover—and The Laughing Cow varieties are a part of my healthy eating plan.

About Laughing Cow
I’ve been enjoying The Laughing Cow wedges for many years.  Each portion controlled wedge has only 35 calories and comes in a variety of flavors. Their newest line – Smooth Sensations Cream Cheese Spreads comes in four flavors, all with 1/3 less fat and only 45 calories per serving. These are perfect to spread on your morning whole grain toast or enjoy with apples or whole grain pretzels as a snack. It’s also perfect to toss in your kids lunch box (back to school time is right around the corner!).

Ways to Enjoy:

  • Spread on your morning toast or waffle
  • Mix into scrambled eggs
  • Spread on whole grain crackers for a snack
  • Smear on sandwiches instead of mayo
  • Use as a dip for baby carrots, bell pepper strips, apple slices or celery sticks

The Laughing Cow also shared one of their yummy breakfast recipes with us.

Omega-3 & Protein-Packed Fresh Herb Breakfast Eggs

Ingredients:

6 whole hard boiled eggs
3 wedges of The Laughing Cow Smooth Sensations Cream
3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
4 slices cooked bacon (*can also use turkey bacon)
1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 Tablespoon minced fresh tarragon
1 Tablespoon minced fresh dill
1 Tablespoon minced roasted red pepper
Dash of sea salt

Preparation:

  • Peel, then slice eggs in half lengthwise and place the yolks in a mixing bowl.
  • Set the whites on a plate (if they slide around, line the plate with lettuce leaves for serving).
  • To the egg yolks, add the remaining ingredients except the sea salt. Mix with a fork until evenly combined, breaking up the egg yolks as you mix.
  • Spoon the filling into the hole in the egg whites. Sprinkle with crunchy sea salt to season

Laughing Cow queso wedges are wonderful to mix with taco meat for tacos or taco salad. Mix them with salsa for a Mexican dressing. The cream cheese wedges are delicious for breakfast.

Sherry Compton Says:

You probably want more than open and eat! My daughter and I enjoy halving a jalapeno, scooping out the seeds, and filling with a wonderful Laughing Cow wedge. I can’t wait to try the new cream cheese on bagels and wrapped in a tortilla.



Maria Says:

How do I love these….let me count the ways:
Cheese Wedges
* melted and served as Alfredo sauce
* for my “cracker & cheese” fix around 4 PM
* inside chicken breasts w/a slice of ham for cordon bleu
* with my scrambled eggs or omelette along with some veggies
* atop the many veggies served as a side dish
Cream Cheese
* on top of my bagel thins….any of the flavors!
* in my smoothies to make them creamier and mix up flavor
* as a substitute for any recipe calling for cream cheese

In general, I look for ways to swap it in to any recipe where I want/need cheese or cream cheese and DON’T want the calories & fat of those “other” kinds!



Wendy Says:

I use one Queso and about 1/4 cup shredded cheese and cook on both sides. When done I place a fresh sliced tomato inside. Yummy lunch and a great replacement.
