Homemade Boursin

What better way to celebrate National Cheese Day than to inhale homemade Boursin at an alarming rate? My love affair with Boursin began many many years ago when I discovered that it could make anything I slathered it on taste delicious. I’ve even started to make up reasons to justify eating it.

Oh, the dryer ate another sock you say? Better break out the Boursin!

The murder of crows constantly shrieking outside our apartment didn’t kill one of us today? Boursin time!

It’s either sunny or cloudy or rainy today? Let’s celebrate with Boursin!

I think you get the point. But Boursin is an expensive addiction to have, and I simply can’t afford to eat it to my heart’s content. Which is why making it myself is a cheaper (and tastier) option.


  • 1 package (8oz) cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2 tbsp butter, room temperature
  • 4-5 cloves of roasted garlic, mashed
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1 tbsp chopped chives
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt


1. Mix all the ingredients really well, then spread on toast. It’s that easy!

Bon Appetit!

My dear friend, Miss Stephanie, originally posted her recipe for homemade Boursin on our (shameless plug) joint blog, Book Me That Extra Seat. It’s delicious, and with the addition of roasted garlic that she suggests – next level amazingness! I implore you to drop everything and make this now. You’ll thank me later.

Happy National Cheese Day!


  1. Love Boursin Cheese, thanks so much for stopping by and linking to First Monday Favorites. BTW, I make something similar and have trouble not eating the whole thing, all at once. so good.
