A delicious and easy homemade Boursin Cheese recipe using ingredients you already have in your kitchen!

I have a crazy obsession with Boursin Cheese that started back in college. I went to a party where they served a fruit and cheese platter – and that is when I had my first bite of Boursin cheese. I was instantly hooked!

Fast forward to today and Boursin cheese almost always makes an appearance on our appetizer spread at parties at our house. Although I’d gladly eat it every day of the week, it can be a little pricey so we usually save it for special occasions.

A delicious and easy homemade Boursin Cheese recipe using ingredients you already have in your kitchen!

Then I ran across this recipe online for homemade Boursin Cheese – made with ingredients we already had at home – cream cheese, butter, fresh garlic and a combination of dried herbs and seasonings! So we gave the recipe a try – tweaked the recipe a bit – and now we have a delicious homemade Boursin Cheese to serve at our next party!

In addition to being great on crackers and sandwiches, Boursin Cheese adds an absolutely wonderful savory kick to recipes like mac and cheese, eggs, mashed potatoes, and crostini.

Boursin Cheese

  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 1 1/2 cups


Note: The garlic can be increased based on your tastes. We started with three teaspoons (1 tablespoon) as noted in the original recipe we adapted but it seemed like a bit too much garlic. So our version calls for only two teaspoons, but feel free to adjust based on your own tastes!


  • 8 ounce package of room temperature cream cheese
  • 1 stick room temperature butter
  • 2 teaspoons finely minced fresh garlic, see note
  • ½ teaspoon Mediterranean dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ¼ teaspoon dried marjoram
  • ½ teaspoon dried chives (1 teaspoon if using fresh)
  • ¼ teaspoon dried tarragon
  • ½ teaspoon dried parsley
  • ¼ teaspoon finely ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt


  1. Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly to combine.
  2. Cover tightly and allow the mixture sit overnight to really meld the flavors.
  3. Serve at room temperature or mix into your favorite recipes.
  4. Store refrigerated for up to two weeks.

    I just a homemade Boursin recipe last week or the week before, very similar and saved it to make. Now the urge is even stronger – it looks so good. Looking forward to seeing that cod dish.

    I am a cream cheese lover and this looks absolutely perfect to me right now. Is it weird I want to eat a spoonful of this? If it is, I dont care

    What a fabulous idea! I am going to have to try this!

    This looks so yummy! Can’t wait to try it. Just one question, what is the difference between Mediterranean Oregano and plain dried Oregano? I live in a small town and don’t think I’ve ever seen the Mediterranean one. Would plain dried Oregano work? Thanks.

    • Martha wrote:

      Hi Shannon – Yes – regular oregano will work!

    I LOVE boursin cheese. It’s great on crackers, hamburgers and even straight from the container 🙂 Love this homemade version!

  • Sue wrote:

    Boursin is my absolute favorite! The prices have gone crazy in the last year or so but you can still get 2 boxes for the same price as 1 at Costco. I am definitely going to try and make your recipe! Thanks for sharing!

    • Martha wrote:

      Thanks Sue – Costco (and other club stores) are definitely a great, less-expensive option! Hope you enjoy our homemade version!

    You just can’t beat Boursin cheese! And I love that you made a homemade version. I’ll bet this would be really good tucked inside of stuffed mushrooms.

      You’re right Dara – this Boursin would be incredible stuffed inside mushrooms!

    Hi Guys! Those mac n cheese cupcakes are calling my name! Never heard of boursin cheese and quite honestly didn’t know it was something you could make ~ make your own cheese, wow, that was off my radar! Thanks for sharing this. But it’s my daughters 3rd birthday (getting sappy here) and I know she’s love those mac n cheese cupcakes.

      Happy Birthday to your daughter Laura! We make those mac & cheese cupcakes every year for a kids summer party and kids and parents both love them! Boursin is usually found in the gourmet cheese section (a little white box and there are a few flavors – we like the garlic and herb) – it’s delicious!
