Great idea! Only problem is that I don’t have a microwave… Can this be done in a toaster oven as well?

no microwave necessary

I don’t think the microwave is necessary. I only use the microwave for heating the cheese enough to get it to mix evenly with the other ingredients. Otherwise it’s very chunky. You might even make this in a small sauce pan. (SMALL so you have less to clean, it’s hard to get warm dairy products off of dishes!)

I modified this recipe. I don’t use the egg or the lemon, and I use greek yogurt, and laughing cow cheese instead of cream cheese. I’m trying to be more health conscious and I am lactose intolerant.

This is such a great recipe. You can modify it also with chocolate chips, or other flavors to make different types of cheesecake. I also have made this one in a large casserole with strawberries on top for a potluck dinner and it was a great success.

also I put the graham crackers on the bottom for a low calorie graham crust.


You’ve also obviously never heard of responding to your readers/comments. Bravo. I know one website I certainly won’t be following.


I think you didn’t get a reply because you are arrogant and rude. A simple link to the would suffice. I don’t think the person posting the recipe was trying to be malicious or forgetful. It just was an oversight and you could have put a friendly reminder, if anything.


Yes – a very rude couple of comments from princesswilly. Very uncivil. I wish there was more kindness on the internet.


It’s way different from the recipe in the link you posted. Obviously they didn’t copy. And, also, there are only a few ways you can make the basic cheesecake recipe and still have it be actual cheesecake, so get over it.


Thanks for posting this recipe. I am on a diet, but love cheesecake. A single serve is a perfect treat from time to time. I don’t care if it is posted from somewhere else or an original recipe, just that it is good and easy.

Princess, doesn’t the mean girl thing get old?

air conflicts,

Great beat ! I wish to apprentice whilst you amend your web site, how cann i subscribe for a weblog site?
The account ided me a acceptable deal. I have been tjny biit familiar of this your broadcast provided vivid clear concept


I’m gonna try it! And cant you people just not start a fight or be rude. I come in peace…


I love the concept of easy. This is the first time I looked at this website. It doesn’t matter to me where the recipe comes from originally. My own I never post, people ask and I won’t give out my secrets. PrincessWilly needs to take a chill pill or get a life one or the other.


This had great flavor, just a quick question on the texture: mine came out of the microwave looking a little like scrambled eggs, does this mean I cooked too long? I’m using an 800 watt microwave.
