This cheese tastes a lot like French Boursin au Poivre. It is better if you make it a couple of days before serving. Prep time does not include setting time.


  1. Blend cream cheese with garlic, caraway, basil, dill weed and chives.
  2. Pat into round, flat shape.
  3. Roll generously on all sides in lemon pepper.
  4. NOTE: This is better if you make it a few days ahead.
  5. It tastes a lot like French Boursin au Poivre.

The flavour of this was evry good, although the cream cheese was pretty runny after I had blended it with the other ingredients. I should have made this recipe a couple of days prior as suggested. Boursin is so expensive, it's great to have a substitute. I used the leftovers in between the breast and the skin of a freerange roast chicken and it was fabulous.

I really enjoyed this boursin! I served it with round crackers, along with a sauce made from wine, raspberry jam and balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Thank you so much for the recipe!
