5 from 1 reviews

It’s easy and affordable to make homemade Boursin cheese.  Deliciously perfect for parties, sandwiches and snacks.

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup of soft cheese (see notes)
  • 1/4 cup of butter
  • 3 tbsp of grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp of garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp of dried dill
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tbsp fresh chives
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley

Instructions

  1. Let the butter and soft cheese warm up to room temperature before mixing.
  2. Start by mixing the Parmesan cheese, dried herbs and garlic powder into the butter. Then add in the soft cheese and continue mixing until everything is well blended.
  3. Finely chop the parsley and chives, then stir them into the cheese as well.
  4. Allow the cheese spread to rest for at least 2 hours before serving to fully blend the flavours.
  5. Store homemade Boursin cheese in the refrigerator, and bring it up to room temperature before serving.

Notes

  • Most Boursin copycat recipes use store-bought blocks of cream cheese. This recipe is designed for homemade soft cheeses or use a tub of spreading cream cheese rather than a hard block. See the section above for 3 homemade cheese options.
  • Most garlic powder contains sulfites to maintain the colour. To avoid unnecessary sulfites, I recommend using Simply Organic Garlic Powder (affiliate link) which is sulfite-free.
