What do I do if I don’t have 1/2 and 1 2?
Let’s get technical for a second: Standard half-and-half is made using light cream, which has about 2/3 of the fat of heavy cream. For the ultimate DIY sub, use equal parts light cream and whole milk. If it’s heavy cream that’s in your fridge, for 1 cup half-and-half, substitute ¾ cup milk plus ¼ cup heavy cream.
How do you make 1/2 cup half-and-half?
So if a recipe calls for 1 cup half-and-half, you’ll need 1/2 cup whole milk and 1/2 cup cream. Combine 75% whole milk and 25% heavy cream (or light cream). This is the most common method. This ratio lowers the fat content slightly to make it closer to the store version.

Can I use half and half instead of milk in scrambled eggs?
