Boursin cheese two ways: Enjoy a creamy chicken dinner or use it in this delicious appetizer.
I met Boursin cheese about 10 years ago after a friend introduced us at a dinner party.
I fell in love with it on the spot and we’ve carried on a torrid love affair ever since.
Our usual date night consists of Boursin sitting on a plate surrounded by my favorite Triscuits and me nibbling on it to death while sipping a glass of Chardonnay.
Frisky, I know.
A few weeks ago, my daughter’s boyfriend’s mother (stay with me here) rolled Boursin in egg and a few other goodies, baked it until it was golden brown and served it as one of the most delicious appetizers I’ve ever had. (Keep scrolling for the recipe.)
I had no idea I should be cooking with the stuff, so I started Googling Boursin recipes.
I found one for Boursin chicken by one of my favorite food bloggers Julie Blanner, who has all kinds of deliciousness up her sleeve. (You can find her on Facebook at Easy Recipes with Julie Blanner).
I made it Sunday night and it was fantastic!
And here’s the recipe for that amazing appetizer I was telling you about (you know, the one from my daughter’s boyfriend’s mother).
You’ll find all sorts of variations online, but this one is delish!
HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED
5.2-oz container of Boursin cheese
Panko bread crumbs
1 egg, beaten
Salt and pepper
Your favorite crackers for serving
HOW TO MAKE IT
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Set out 3 bowls, one with flour, one with Panko and the other with the beaten egg.
Roll the Boursin cheese in flour to coat as heavily as you can.
Roll it again in egg then cover with Panko and press lightly to have as much crumb topping as you can.
Bake in small baking dish for 12-14 minutes. Remove from oven and drizzle with honey.
Serve at your next dinner party and your friends will think you’re a cooking genius.
