Boursin Cheese Spread II

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 0 mins

This rich, creamy spread goes well with a baguette or crackers and a glass of fruity Beaujolais but it has many other uses as well. To reduce fat and calories, reduced fat cottage cheese and reduced-fat cream cheese may be substituted. 1) Spread on Roma or plum tomato halves. Serve cold, or bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes; then broil until bubbly. 2) Combine 1-cup Boursin and 1/2 cup milk. Toss with 12 ounces hot pasta. 3)Spoon Boursin (not the low-fat version) into pastry bag, and pipe onto cucumber slices or Belgian endive leaves. 4) Spread 1 tablespoon under skin of chicken breast or 1 teaspoon over boneless, skinless chicken breast before baking. 5) Spoon onto baked potatoes, or stir into mashed potatoes. 6) Use as a sandwich spread in place of mayonnaise.

Excellent as always!! I got a recipe just like this from Southern Living a few years ago. We used it a lot (my mum and I) and then proceeded to loose the recipe... Anyway the other day we were looking for this recipe for my Christmas party and here it is!! The Cottage Cheese makes it different than the others I think. The folks that came to my party were downing this stuff like crazy. Even the guys loved it. Some folks were trying to guess what the ingredients were (they couldn't). Others have emailed me asking for the recipe. This is SO simple to make and really yummy!! I make mine with the Neufchatel cheese instead of regular cream cheese. Same great taste, just lower calories!!
