Haylie Duff is an expert when it comes to getting creative in the kitchen with Philadelphia Cream Cheese.
In an interview with Closer Weekly, the 31-year-old actress shared her summer snacking tips — and revealed how she uses the ingredient in so many different ways!
"One of my favorite things to do with it is take a tablespoon of it and eat it with eggs in the morning. It makes the eggs really creamy and you can add a flavor to it that way," Haylie shared. “I also really love it on a cracker, or a flat bread or a piece of pita with a vegetable. I tend to love savory things, so I love the Philadelphia olive or the veggie. I layer that with cucumber, tomato, celery, you can kind of put it onto anything."

She continued, "You have less guilt with your snacking, but you still are getting to satisfy all that craving that you’re looking for. All that flavor and something salty. It’s the best of both worlds."
