Cooking with Boursin

Boursin cheese is a great ingredient, lending its garlic and herb flavors and creaminess to dishes, and Chowhounds have lots of ideas for ways to cook with it.

You can use it in sauces to top meat or pasta: iamafoodie makes a mushroom sauce with it to top a steak sandwich, and says it’s “pure bliss if you start with a good demi-glace.”

LindaWhit likes to combine sautéed veggies, Boursin, some half and half, and a sprinkling of grated Parmesan for a quick dinner. Or you can make twice-baked potatoes: Mix baked potatoes scooped from their skins with Boursin, some butter, and a splash of heavy cream, then stuff back into the skins, top with a sprinkle of grated Gruyère, and bake until the cheese is bubbly and golden, says Deenso.

Here are some more Boursin recipe ideas:

• Add to omelets, frittatas, and scrambled eggs
• Stir into grits or mashed potatoes
• Mix with chopped prosciutto or tomatoes, and use to stuff mushrooms
• Stuff into chicken breasts, pork chops, or beef filets
