Homemade Boursin-style Cheese

Boursin cheese was something I had never heard of until we asked the lady behind the deli counter what that delicious cheese was in our sandwiches. We wanted to replicate the sandwich at home, without paying the $7 per sandwich.  That cheese was the only thing we were stumped on.  When I found that cheese in the store, I realized why my sandwich cost so much!  A little teeny tiny blob of cheese was over $4.  That just wouldn’t do, so I did what I always do and found a recipe that has the same great taste and texture for a fraction of the cost.  Enter:  Homemade Boursin style cheese.

Aside from being added to hot or cold sandwiches, this spread is also great on buttery crackers and used as a vegetable dip.


  • 1-8oz block of soft cream cheese
  • 1/2c butter, soft
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 tsp basil, oregano, thyme, salt
  • 1/4 tsp dill, marjoram, pepper


Whip all the ingredients together and spread where desired.  Store in the fridge.
