Left with lots of sour cream

I bought a huge tub of sour cream to use in a cupcake recipe. After a test run, I realized I preferred another recipe. I don't want to just throw out all the sour cream I have, but don't know what to make since I don't usually use any in my cooking. Any suggestions for some simple tasty items?

  1. Coffeecake (the Barefoot Contessa's sour cream coffeecake is good), chocolate cake, in a cheesecake, various dips ... pretty much check out the Barefoot Contessa's recipes, lol.

    1. Chicken Paprikash

      Cheese cake with a sour cream layer on top.

      Cucumber & onion salad with sour cream, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper.

      Baked potato with toppings for supper.

      Almost forgot my favorite, strawberries topped with sour cream and brown sugar. Delicious!

      1. Mix 2-3 tbs with some fresh or dried chives. Mix with a few eggs before you scrable them...

        1. I made the sour cream banana bread from this site--recommend it highly. Sour cream is also hard to beat with chips and salsa (that's how I'm using up what I had left over).

            I second the recommendation for the banana bread. My daughter the picky eater said it was the best banana bread ever.

          2. The Cake Bible has an amazingly creamy cheesecake that calls for 3 cups of sour cream. If you like a soft creamy cheesecake, this one is well worth trying.
