My twist on it would be shallots, garlic, goat cheese and S&P kinda like borsin spread. Also can be put into button mushrooms topped with bread crumbs and baked till cooked through about 20-30 minutes at 375. Outta this world GOOOOOOOOD !

I know this may sound weird, but I have always loved cream cheese and strawberry jam sandwiches on white bread.

Not wierd at all!
I did some sandwiches for a Summer Camp last week. Thursday's Gourmet Treat was (store -bought!) croissants, cream cheese, ham and Guava Jelly.

No complaints from 100 kids!!

Cream Cheese is commonly served with Guava Shells here as a sweet course.

Here's one that an aunt of mine used to always make for parties. It sounded odd to me at first, but being a big-time garlic lover, I really liked it & now make it myself if I know other garlic-lovers will be coming over.

Amounts are all to taste.

One (or more) bricks of real cream cheese (forget the low-fat/no-fat stuff), softened to room temp

As many peeled, minced cloves of garlic you want (or can stand)

As many good-quality dill or sour-dill pickles, chopped, you want

Minced fresh parsley to cover.

Combine cream cheese, minced garlic, & chopped pickles & refrigerate until mixture is just still enough to handle easily. Turn out on plastic or waxed paper & form into a log or brick shape & roll in or gently press on your minced parsley to cover. Chill until serving time, then serve with your favorite sturdy crackers.

How about a cheese Danish? When Mom and I used to go to St. Louis for a shopping trip, we'd always bring home wonderful pastries from Mrs. Hullings. The cheese Danish was my favorite!

I have a friend who just mixes a little can of chopped green chilies with a package of cream cheesed, hits it with a little hot sauce, and spreads it on a cracker.

Another friend used to bring what she called "SOS" to parties. It was browned, seasoned ground beef mixed with cream cheese melted in, and was served with party rye bread. It was delicious!
