I like to use it instead of other condiments on a turkey burger

OOOO here is a new one I just tried...I put a wedge that I re-shaped into a flattened ball into the center of homemade low-fat hamburger patties. Hubby grilled them up as usual, and when you take a bite, the oozy melty laughing cow is hidden inside each bite. SOOOO decadent, so guilt free! No need for cheese on the outside of the patty.

You could use any flavor, but I am a particular fan of the blue love

Laughing Cow is great but it's still a manufactured food product - meaning that it's filled with lots of weird ingredients that I'm not so sure I want to be putting in my body (at least not in large quantities). Anyhow, I LOVED Laughing Cow but cut out all processed foods. What's a girl to do? Make your own!

Okay, I promise it's not that hard, in fact it's super easy (two ingredients). See below:

Step 1: Mix 16 ounces of plain Non-Fat Greek Yogurt with 1/2 tsp salt (or less, if desired). IMPORTANT: Make sure your yogurt doesn't include gelatin or stabilizers - the ingredients should just be milk and active cultures. Chobani brand works extraordinarily well.
Step 2: Drop mixture into a cheesecloth. Collect the corners of the cheesecloth and hang over a bowl in the fridge so that they whey (watery mixture) can drip out
Step 3: Allow to sit for 24 hours, or until desired dryness is achieved. It will yield approximately 11 ounces. (And only has 25.5 calories per ounce!)
Step 4: Enjoy!
This "cheese" (actually called labneh, with origins in the Middle East) has the slight tang of the yogurt, and the texture of goat cheese (SOO much better than those processed wedges!). Personalize to your tastes by adding herbs and spices. Tonight I added dill and a pinch chile verde sea salt and spread it on tomatoes, it works well as a dip for veggies, spread for sandwiches and it also melts beautifully.


Oh thank you so much! And I just learned how to make my own yogurt so this is perfect!

I thinly slice zucchini into long strips, grill, and then take a dab of LC cheese, roll it up to make zucchini pinwheels. Yummy! I've also added a little bit of sugar or Splenda to LC cheese to make a mini "cheesecake"

I make cucumber sandwiches for lunch with laughing cow cheese.

Spread one cheese wedge of any flavor on an Arnold whole wheat bread thin. Add sliced cucumber and chopped fresh dill. Nice sandwich for only around 170 calories.

Just found this on their website.

Taco Burgers

All the Flavor of a Taco, all the yum of a burger but none of the guilt!

•1 pound Lean Ground Beef (Like Laura's Lean)
•4 dashes Taco Seasoning
•4 pieces Sandwich Flats (Like Arnold's Buns)
•2 wedges The Laughing Cow Light Queso Fresco & Chipotle
Mix taco seasoning into ground beef and make 4 patties. Grill.

While these are grilling, toast 4 Sandwich flats. (For best result take the bun and flip so the insides are facing out, and put both pieces in one side of the toaster. That way the inside is crispy but they don’t get over-done).

Spread 1/2 The Laughing Cow cheese wedge onto each sandwich. Drain hamburger patty. Add lettuce and diced onion to taste. No mayo or other sandwich spread needed – The Laughing Cow gives it all the creamy texture you could want.

I've noticed Laughing Cow cheeses in other peoples diaries, but have yet to buy some. After reading this thread, I've asked hubby to pick some up on his way home from work tomorrow. I can't wait to try it!

Unfortunately here in the UK, our Laughing Cow flavours are pretty limited ... I thought I was doing well to find an Onion flavour the other day!

Your recipe sounds delicious love

And to think, I only use it to spread on wasa crackers or as a mayo substitute in sandwiches...

how about buffalo chicken wrap with blue cheese?

1 light wrap (around 100 cal0
1 morningstar farms ChikN Patty
2 Tbls Franks Red Hot Cayenne Pepper Sauce
1 Wedge laughing Cow Blue Cheese
Shredded Lettuce

Spread blue cheese over wrap and top with sliced onion. Microwave ChikN Patty for 1 minute and coat with hot sauce. cut in half and place on wrap and top with shredded lettuce. Wrap it up and cut in half. Enjoy!

This recipe has 275 calories for the whhole serving and it is delicious. I have a weak spot for buffalo chicken with blue cheese dressing so this really kicks its butt. I Hope you like it!

I Do wish i could find the chipotle flavor but so far just Swiss, Garlic and Herb, Blue Cheese, French onion, and Sun Dried Tomatoe and Basil. But these are all great.
