I have just realised hidden in my fridge is 300ml tub of thickened cream that will go out of date in 2 days.
I'd rather not waste it, but i'm drawing a blank trying to think of what to make with it...

Nothing too expensive, don't want to buy too many ingredients
Dinner ideas, not sweets or sides
will eat just about anything!

anyone got a simple recipe idea?

Potato bake or pumpkin soup and add the cream at the end or cabonara?

Potato bake?  Slice potatoes thinly and layer in a casserole dish. Put some sliced onions in as a middle layer.. Mix together a packet of soup mix (cream or chicken or leek) with 1/2 cream and 1/2 milk. Pour over to cover potatoes. Top with grated cheese and foil. Bake for about an hour on moderate heat and brown the top with foil off for a few mins before serving. Not healthy but yum and reheats nicely. It's was often served at family bbqs when I was growing up.

Cook some sliced chicken breast, take out of pan when almost cooked. In the same pan Sauté some onion, capsicum and mushrooms, add a splash of white wine, some chicken stock, cook for a while then add cream and reduce until thickened. Serve over fettucini. Quite quick and yummy

Potato Bake is what I'm cooking right now for dinner. But I use the lazy method - slice a heap of potatoes thinly, chop up some ham and throw it on top, then mix one masterfood potato bake packet (mmm garlic goodness!) with 300ml of thickened cream. Pour over potatoes. Bake for an hour with foil on. Then take off foil, add cheese and brown in oven. Going to have it with some chicken and maybe some salad. That way, won't overdose on the yummy potato bake.

Going to use leftovers with leftover stew for this week's lunch at work.

I don't know whether this is a cooking crime but I also use it to make sour cream if I need it, with the addition of lemon juice.

Beef Stroganoff is tasty.

brown chicken breast/tenderloins and remove from heat.

Pour cream (probably not the whole thing - more like 1/2 cup), parsley, honey and mustard (or cheats honeymustard) into the pan and warm through - place chicken back in and coat.

It's absolutely delish.

Pasta carbonara?


A few years back I would always make Carbornara with thickened cream.  Once you get your hands on a good, 'proper' Carbornara recipe, you'll never use cream again.  (It's made with just eggs, bacon, Parmesan cheese, olive oil and garlic - the cheese and olive oil together forms the sauce).

If I had cream to use up, I would make a big potato bake which everyone loves as leftovers too if there's too much for a single meal.  

Or, grab a packet of Chocolate Ripple biscuits, whip some cream with a tiny bit of icing sugar and vanilla (it gives it a mock cream flavour/consistency).

Another thing I like is a pasta sauce made with a mashed avocado, cream, crispy bacon and spring onion.  Totally unhealthy though!

What did you end up doing with the cream?  For a quick simple meal, chicken browned then add cream, honey and dijon or wholegrain mustard - yum!  Serve with veg and rice

I hear you re. the carbonara, Funnington, however DS likes the blandness that cream gives and dislikes olive oil.  I make my carbonara with egg yolks, cream, parmesan and bacon.  He doesn't like garlic much either.  But I usually use cooking cream, and not a whole 300ml tub.

I would make this quiche. It's easy and delicious.
