Make Your Own Boursin Cheese

IMG_3629A friend, Helen Z., served up this cheese ‘ball’ at Christmas and calls it a “Mock Boursin Cheese”.  It was delicious!  Serve with a mild cracker like a Wheat Thin or a plain Water Cracker.

Mock Boursin Cheese Ball

Combine softened 8 oz. cream cheese with 1 teaspoon of all of the following:

  • caraway seed
  • dried basil
  • dill weed
  • chopped chives
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced

Stir all this together well and then shape it into a ball (rounded or flattened) and press it into several tablespoons of lemon-pepper that you have poured onto a plate.

This should be prepared early in the day if serving that evening – or the day before – in order to let the flavors meld.
