7 Delicious Ways To Enjoy Lilly Sour Cream During the Holidays

sour cream appetizer

Busy holiday season? Trust us, we know. It can get overwhelming at times, especially when you have guests over that you need to feed and entertain. The good news? Lilly sour cream can help!

Here’s how:

1. Lilly sour cream can help you serve amazing appetizers to your guests. The options are endless really, from small tea sandwiches to mini sour cream biscuits, but one of our favorites: Fill small, store-bought tartlet shells with a dollop of Lilly sour cream and top with smoked salmon for a festive, pretty appetizer.

2. Need a dip but tired of the usual “sour cream with onion dip mix?” Combine Lilly sour cream with some store-bought salsa or with guacamole for a wonderful, different dip to serve with your crudités.

3. Making breakfast for your guests? Remember that adding a little Lilly sour cream to pancakes makes them extra rich and fluffy, and just a tablespoon of Lilly sour cream added to scrambled eggs makes them extra creamy,and enhances their flavor too.

4. Serving mashed potatoes or mashed sweet potatoes for your holiday dinner? If you love super-creamy mashed potatoes, simply add sour cream in addition to milk and butter.

5. Baking holiday cookies? Sour cream in the dough will make your cookies extra rich and flavorful. Here’s a great recipe for sour cream sugar cookies.

6. For Christmas brunch, serve this pretty sour cream Bundt cake. Or add 1 cup of Lilly Sour Cream to any cake batter and you’ll get an amazingly moist and fluffy cake.

7. If you would like to enjoy the flavor and texture of sour cream but are watching your fat intake, light Lilly sour cream and fat free Lilly sour cream are both excellent options, and as Sam the Cooking Guy rightfully insists, Lilly Fat Free sour cream truly is delicious!

We wish you a very happy holiday season.

How to Use Sour Cream in Everyday Recipes

strawberries and sour cream

I love eating sour cream straight out of the container!

Ever since I can remember, sour cream was a huge indulgence – the kind of food that gives you intense pleasure with every spoonful.

But there are plenty of other ways you can use sour cream to enhance everyday recipes, and also to replace common ingredients. Here are a few examples:

1. If the recipe calls for Crème Fraiche, you can use the same amount of sour cream instead.

2. Sour cream can replace buttermilk in most recipes. Use the same amount the recipe calls for – so, a cup of sour cream can replace a cup of buttermilk.

3. Plain, full fat yogurt and sour cream are interchangeable in most recipes.

4. Definitely substitute sour cream for mayonnaise. It will turn out just as good, and will have less calories.

5. Did you know that sour cream can greatly improve store bought cake mix? Add and mix all the liquid ingredients according to the instructions on the box. When blended, add a cup of sour cream. The cake will turn out richer and fluffier.

6. Using sour cream as a substitute for milk in baked goods recipes adds flavor and richness. Try substituting half of the milk with sour cream.

7. Instead of topping fruit and desserts with whipped cream, make a rich, unique topping by whisking brown sugar and sour cream (try using 1/4 cup sugar for each cup of sour cream). This also makes a great topping for pancakes.

8. Adding a little sour cream to your scrambled eggs before you cook them will result in rich, creamy eggs.

When cooking with sour cream, remember not to overheat or boil it. If sour cream is cooked at too high a temperature or held over heat too long, even at a low temperature, it will break down.
