Laughing Cow Light Cheese Wedges!

laughing_cowThis has got to be one of my favorite cheese products by far. They have three flavors – Light Original, Light Garlic & Herb, and Light French Onion. One wedge has only 35 calories and 2.5g protein! This is a great substitute for:

– Cream cheese on bagels

– Cream in a Recipe for Fettuccine Alfredo (use in place of cream cheese or heavy cream)

– Base for Bruschetta (just top with chopped tomatoes, onion, garlic, fresh basil, olive oil and a bit of lemon juice!)

– Base spread for garlic bread

– “Grilled Cheese” – I toast two pieces of bread, spread one wedge of the garlic & herb cheese on each slice (so two wedges total) – top with spinach leaves, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, chopped bell pepper, and lots of salt & pepper (and other seasonings as you see fit!) then I grill the sandwich lightly using one spray of olive oil cooking spray. The result is an ooey-gooey cheesy yummy sandwich that only has 250-300 calories and is quite filling!

Try it and let me know what you think!
