baked boursin cheese

baked boursin cheeseWhen you have been entertaining and cooking for as long as I have, coming up with new appetizers isn’t easy.  Having said that, now and then I’ll see something on social media that grabs my attention.  Boursin cheese isn’t something new to me. I’ve tossed it with pasta until creamy, smeared it on toast, in mashed potatoes, and soup.  But never tried baking it until now.

If you have been following my blog for any length of time you know I like a recipe that’s easy and simple to make.  That’s this dish!  My go-to Boursin cheese is garlic and fine herbs.  Baking the cheese rolled in panko crumbs gives a crunchy exterior.  It’s quite the taste sensation.  For other cheese dishes yours truly has made, view here.

you will need

1 pkg. Boursin cheese
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
1 egg
1/2 cup flour


Preheat oven to 425f (218c). Because Boursin is a soft cheese, keep it refrigerated until ready to use. boursin ingredients Remove the cheese from the package and the foil. Grab three bowls; one for the panko, one for the egg, and one for the flour. Lightly coat the Boursin in the flour by rolling it making sure all sides are covered. Then dip into the beaten egg.   Finish by rolling the cheese in panko breadcrumbs making sure to coat all sides. Place in an oven-proof baking dish. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden. Remove from the oven and serve with crackers or toasted bread.

the culinary chase’s note:

For added oomph, drizzle the cheese with warmed sweet chili sauce. Enjoy!
