What is Boursin Cheese?
Boursin is a soft creamy cheese. It has a similar texture to goats cheese, and comes in a variety of different flavours. The most well known, and the flavour we’re using today, is Garlic and Herb.
Does Boursin Cheese melt well?
Yes!! Just like cream cheese it goes nice and oozy when subjected to heat 🤤
Boursin Grilled Cheese
When it comes to making the grilled cheese, as you can imagine it couldn’t be easier!
Whilst you could just use Boursin and only Boursin, I like to sneak in some mozzarella too. Just to add some more texture to the filling without over shadowing the Boursin.
Low ‘n’ Slow
I recommend frying the sandwich over a low-medium heat, just to give chance for the Boursin to completely melt by the time the bread has toasted.
Process shots: add bread to pan butter side down and spread with Boursin (photo 1), add mozzarella (photo 2), add another slice of bread with Boursin and butter (photo 3), fry both sides until golden and the cheese is gooey (photo 4).
Serving a Boursin Grilled Cheese
These are awesome as a snack, for lunch or as soup dunkers in some Tomato Soup!
- Crisp/Chip Recommendation: Roast Chicken flavour goes amazingly with the garlic and herb flavour.
- Side Recommendation: Other than the soup, you could add Sweet Potato Wedges!
Alrighty, let’s tuck into the full recipe for this Boursin Sandwich shall we?!
