Boursin Cheese Spread - Copycat

"This spread is delicious on crackers, baked potatoes and vegetables. I get many requests to bring this to snack day at work. It is hard to believe something this good can be so easy to make. Real Boursin Cheese is very pricey and most people can't tell the difference!"

    Excellent! This recipe made enough for two occasions. I didn't have any marjoram on hand so I left it out and didn't miss it at all. I served it with little dipping bread sticks. I'll be making this often! You saved me lots of money, too. I have been purchasing this at our local farmers market for $3.50 for a tiny container!!!! Thanks!!!

    This is an easy and delicious boursin recipe. Even using the dried herbs, this recipe is very flavorful. I let the low-fat cream cheese and Blue Bonnet margarine sit out till room temp, and was able to combine everything nicely by hand. This made two good-sized logs, and I am planning to freeze one! A definite keeper!

    So easy and delicious ... whipped it up at the last minute (usually ingredients you have on hand) for a pot-luck appetizer and it was a hit. I doubled the garlic (personal taste). Will use this often.

    I halved the recipe and that is plenty! I didn't have dried basil or marjoram so I just used Italian seasoning instead and it turned out so yummy. Great recipe.

    When first made and used on a baked potato I wasn't bowled over by this recipe. The next day I spread some on a toasted bagel though and loved it. It does have a strong garlic flavor. I can see many lovely uses for this spread. Thank you for sharing your recipe!


<p>I'm retired since August 2007 after 20 years from a library in central Wisconsin. I guess you could say my hobby is cooking. My husband has even gained weight since I am home more. <br /><br />I love trying new recipes and just started smoking food in my new smoker. So far I have only made salmon and turkey. Both turned out good. <br />We have two grown children and two granddaughters. <br /><br />We also love camping and try to go often. My husband loves fishing and hunting so we have alot of fish and venison and the freezer. <br /><br />I love Zaar and visit the site almost every day. I really love it when I get a good review on one of my recipes. I just wish members would alow zaar mail fo I could thank them for the review.</p>
