When people mention mascarpone cheese, the first thing that comes to mind is tiramisu. But thanks to its creaminess and slight sweetness, this Italian cheese works amazingly with other dishes. Here are some of the best ways to use Mascarpone cheese besides making Tiramisu.

Add it to Soups

 Mascarpone cheese does wonders in soups. Adding just a scoop of Mascarpone to your broccoli soup, pumpkin soup, or any other soup for that matter, and it will instantly become creamier and richer in taste.

Add it to Scrambled Eggs

Want to make your scrambled eggs creamier and fluffier? Then, Mascarpone cheese is a great way to get there. Simply wait until the scrambled eggs are almost finished cooking before adding a scoop of Mascarpone and folding it in.

Serve it With Grilled Veggies and Fruit

Mascarpone cheese will take your grilled vegetables and fruit over the top. Either serve it on the side or generously add it on top of the veggies and fruit while they are hot, and enjoy the new creamy creation.

Use it as a Cream Cheese Substitute

Thanks to its consistency and taste, Mascarpone cheese will work great as a cream cheese substitute in most dishes and desserts. You can use it interchangeably and will likely not even notice the difference.
