Meant to make ice cream with it but no room in freezer for bowl. Use by date was Sunday but it's still fine. Can't think what to do with it!

Make a mousse of some description?eg chocolate?

if you have bacon and potatoes and cheese you could make tartiflette (basically posh potato bake thing) which is divine.

Make a cheesecake?

That's a lot of cream! Is there room to freeze some of it in ice-cubes to use later?

Mushrooms, bacon, parmesan and cream sauce for pasta.
Then put the rest with a nice fruit crumble

Have you got any fruit, eg plums? Make a clafoutis - dead simple and when I made one recently my lot were very impressed!

I have some too that needs using, bought it for the cheesecake that I didn't make at weekend, I will be making a carbonara type thing tonight.

Or this cheesy thing:
- Mix the cream with some beer (optional)
- put big slices of white bread in an oven-proof dish, pour cream over
- put a thick layer of nice cheese (port salut works well)
- Bake in the oven until melted and bubbling
- Eat with bread and salad.
Not the healthiest of meals, but really nice when it's cold and miserable outside. It's like a variation on cheese fondu.

Bleh I think I love you smile.

I had it in a restaurant, and haven't been able to stop thinking about it since (just need to make it). You can eat it with bread, or just scoop it out with a spoon.
