For this recipe of Homemade Boursin Cheese, I was fortunate enough to use the fresh herbs I have growing in pots on my deck in the backyard. However, if you don’t have access to your own fresh herbs, it’s nice that these days there is a wide variety of fresh herbs readily available in grocery stores, and at local farmer’s markets.
Homemade Boursin Cheese Ingredient list;
- Cream cheese
- Butter (I use salted)
- Fresh parsley, dill, marjoram, thyme, rosemary, and sage
- Minced garlic
- Heavy cream
- Black pepper
- Pink Himalayan Salt
- Assorted vegetables for dipping (celery, broccoli, and red bell peppers, shown), or crackers.
Do I have to use fresh herbs, or can I use dried herbs to make homemade Boursin cheese, and can I use other herbs than what you’ve listed?
Yes, you can use dried herbs, but since dried herbs are more intense in flavor, make sure to cut back on the amount you use. Feel free to use your personal favorite herbs when making your own Homemade Boursin Cheese.
The easy instructions for making Easy Garlic Herb Homemade Boursin Cheese Spread;
- Assemble, and finely mince your selection of fresh herbs (approximately ¼ cup).
- Add the softened cream cheese and butter to a large bowl.

- Add the minced herbs to the whipped cream cheese and stir well.
