Homemade Boursin Cheese Spread

Boursin Cheese Spread 2

When I see Boursin cheese I always think of the holidays. Why? Because that's the only time I would splurge and pick some up. My oldest son loves the stuff but it's pretty pricey, so unless there was a good sale or it was a holiday, I just pass that delicious cheese spread by.

Not familiar with Boursin? You've probably passed it by in the store.

It's a delicious, creamy herb spread that you can use as a dip or a spread. Try it instead of butter, mayo or mustard. Oh man, your taste buds will thank you!

My kids wiped this out in a day. It tastes even better than the Boursin brand in my opinion. Creamy, garlicky and loaded with herbs. It's so simple to make too. Grab a container of whipped cream cheese, throw in some herbs and let it sit for 24 hours. That's it! Simple and so good! I never have to buy it again!

Boursin every week!!!!

Boursin Cheese Spread 1

Homemade Boursin Cheese Spread
adapted from a recipe at A View from Great Island
12 ounces whipped cream cheese
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 teaspoons dried parsley
2 teaspoons dried oregano
2 teaspoons dried thyme
2 teaspoons dried chives or onions
2 teaspoons dried sage
2 teaspoons dried basil
2 teaspoons Trader Joe's 2 Seasoning Salute or you can substitute any other spice blend you like, (i.e, Mrs. Dash)

Here are the incredibly complicated directions. Place the whipped cream cheese in a bowl. Add in all the herbs. Mix well with a sturdy spoon. Cover and refrigerate for 24 hours to allow the flavors to blend and the herbs to soften. Serve with your favorite crackers or use as a sandwich spread.
