I assume you have nothing to go with whipped cream?
You can culture it with yoghurt or kefir to make a type of cream cheese, churn it into butter, make homemade ice cream (lots of hazelnuts in your neck of the woods. Nocciola is a popular flavour of gelato).
I have a lot of stuff in my cupboard, I just lack imagination.
For the life of me, I can't think of what to make with it. I don't need any ice cream, or whipped cream. I have creamy soup recipes but they don't call for heavy whipping cream just cream. Are they interchangeable?
Edited because I left out an entire word...sheeesh!
I love the idea of homemade ice cream, but if that's not your thing, and if you don't have any pie or shortcake to top--
Pasta &/or chicken with Alfredo sauce is tasty, and not terribly time consuming.
You can use cream in place of milk in mashed potatoes-- just omit or reduce the butter.
Scalloped potatoes are good with a little cream subbing for some of the milk.
You can use it in pancake batter in place of some of the milk & then cut back on the oil - same way with cake batter. Just make sure your total liquid volume stays about the same, but I can tell you from experience that most pancake & cake recipes have a lot of flex room in that respect.
Crème brûlée is nice..or a batch of home-made caramels. The latter can go in the freezer for later, too.
The creamed soup suggestion is good. I often add some heavy cream and some plain milk to mine.
"Sometimes, I just drink it... ;)"
LOL! And here I thought I was being naughty with my suggestions of strawberry shortcake, caramels, and Crème brûlée!
Yeah, pudding is great, too... sheesh, this thread isn't helping my resolve!
It makes a gravy really awsome. I always have at least a pint on hand. Just a splash on cereal makes even skim milk taste great. Super on oatmeal along with some honey or maple syrup.
I make a crimini mushroom side dish with it - saute some onion and garlic, add some white wine,, add the mushrooms and reduce a bit, then add some S&P and a little heavy cream. Originally wanted to make a steak topping, but had so many mushrooms. would up being a side dish.
Heehee-- s'ok, I'm not one to lay blame! ...and I don't have a formal Resolution I'm breaking or anything. Our family eats pretty well-- good balanced diet with lots of whole grains and fresh fruits and vegetables...but we eat a good share of fats, too- lots of cheese and butter. I'm not 25 anymore...or 35 either...or... well, anyway, I'm thinking that it'd be good to get used to a lower fat diet before I get to the point where my metabolism slows down.
So I won't put any whipped cream on my pudding this time...
I did think of biscuits, but they take a little more "feeling your way through" than the other stuff. If you don't want them greasy, you have to cut back a little on the butter, but not too much or they'll be tough. I wasn't sure how to explain it, but you're right; they're great with cream.
Scones didn't occur to me. Mmmm-- nice warm scones when it's cold outside... It just so happens I have a bag of cranberries AND a whole quart of heavy cream in my refrigerator :)
Wow! I haven't checked this thread in a while...I didn't realize there were sooo many things you could make with heavy cream. I hope I didn't ruin some resolutions before they even got a chance to start. 8-)
