How to Use Boursin Cheese

Boursin cheese is a French cheese created in 1957 by François Boursin. There are several flavour varieties of Boursin cheese, from garlic and fine herb to garlic and roasted red pepper. This is a versatile cheese that can be served plain or used in many recipes. Once available only in France, you can now purchase Boursin cheese in cheese shops and grocery stores in 35 countries. There are many imitations but only one original Boursin, or all-natural "Gournay," cheese, so named by Boursin for the small town in France where he grew up.

  2. 2

    Mix your favourite flavour of Boursin cheese with a half cup of sour cream to make a dip. Chill for an hour and serve with water crackers.

  3. 3

    Put pizza sauce on dough from pizza kit. Spread a package of Boursin cheese over sauce. Put tomato slices and black-olive slices over the cheese and sprinkle with oregano. Place the pizza in a preheated oven at 179 degrees Cor 20 minutes. Serve with red wine.

  4. 4

    Grill hamburgers and place on bun with sliced tomato and onion on the bottom. Spread Boursin cheese over the burger and top with the bun. You can also stuff the burger with the cheese before you grill it if you prefer.

  5. 5

    Heat a tablespoon of butter in an omelette pan. Beat two eggs and pour into pan. Cook eggs by moving the set part to the centre and allowing the raw egg to go to the outside circumference of the pan. Add chunks of Boursin cheese to the centre and fold the omelette over. Cover and cook just until the cheese is melted. Serve with breakfast sausage.
