Yes - you read that title correctly. Homemade. Boursin. If there was ever anything to be freaking serious about, it would be anything to deal with cheese. Spreadable cheese makes it even better. For your bagel-smearing, cracker-topping, charcuterie-enhancing, sauce-making, and all your favorite cheesy-goodness needs, this is definitely the recipe for you.
This makes approximately 1 1/3 lb/604g
Ingredients: 2 - 8oz boxes Cream Cheese 4oz Goat Cheese (optional) 1/2 Stick Butter, salted 2 Scallions, finely chopped 1 TB Garlic, finely minced 1 tsp Basil, dried 1 tsp Thyme, dried 1 tsp Rosemary, dried 1 tsp Dill, dried Kosher Salt & White (Black) Pepper to taste
Your cheese(s) and butter need to be room-temperature - don't leave these out for longer than 90 minutes to two hours in regular temperature-controlled kitchens. If your kitchen is warmer than normal, do not leave it out longer than an hour. In a mixer, blend your cheese(s) and butter first. Start on low speed for a minute and then increase to medium speed. Make sure this is evenly mixed together. You will know it is mixed well when there are no more yellow-buttery streaks.
Add the rest of your ingredients and mix well. Store in the fridge. This should be good roughly 7-10 days. Trust me, it wont last that long!
