    Yes, you can have 6 x 17.5g laughing cow extra light triangles for an HEXA.
    Sorry, no suggestions on recipes, as I've never used it for cooking, as I usually use philadelphia

    I use them to make chicken kievs (without the bread crumbs although you can use HEX B for that) mix a couple of triangles with your crushed garlic & slice you chicken down the side & stuff it with the mixture :) its really tasty.
    Also with tuna pasta instead of mayo. X

    I melt mine into baked beans.....or instand mash, if im having a lazy day, lol, or even just cut up small on new potatoes instead of butter. also, if im having a sandwich, or toast, I use them instead of butter. I'v always got them in, and love the fact that you can have 6 for a HEb.

    Someone in my group made cauliflower cheese soup and said it was lovely. Just boil cauliflower, add 10 laughing cows and a teaspoon of smoked paprika. x

    I use it in omlettes sometimes. Cook omlette quite a way through and then add little chunks, cut up from the triangles. it kind of melts a little and goes a bit gooey. Yum Yum x

    For me its replaced butter in anything savoury (sandwiches, baked potatoes, on toast) as it seems like such a waste to syn butter when you can have the cheese :p

    Its nice to make mac cheese with too. Either phili or LC, whichever I have in the fridge handy :p I'm not a great fan of the Extra light version so I have the light one (5 of them a day i think?)

    I was going to say exactly this. 5 of the Light ones is a HEX A as well and they taste so much nicer. I find the purple ones a little transparent but the light blue ones taste so much creamier.

    I have mine mixed into instant mash, on toast, dropped in spaghetti hoops and beans, on a jacket potato, I microwave them for a few seconds to get a melty sauce for my pasta, as a spread for ryvita/scanbran/bread, in place of the butter when making pasta and sauce and I squish them into the grooves of celery for a snack with easy Superfree.

    Occasionally they pop up on a BOGOF. Other than that, I totally agree.
