I LOVE Boursin garlic and herb cheese spread…

That being said, it’s expensive!

For 5.2 ounces, the price varies from $5.26 to $7.49 depending on the store…and honestly, 5.2 ounces is NOT enough in my opinion!

This recipe was shared with me some time ago and I keep a tub on hand most of the time, especially in the summer months.



Better Than Boursin

Author Liz Geeslin


  • 1 8 - 16 oz cream cheese, block or tub I love the whipped tub cream cheese, but any version works great!
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • 4-6 garlic cloves grated...use fresh, not the jarred minced!
  • 1/2 tsp Jane's Krazy Mixed Up Salt This makes all the difference!
  • 1 - 2 tbsp dried parsley flakes


  • Put the cream cheese into a small mixing bowl...save the container if using the tub cream cheese.
  • Melt the butter in a small microwave dish.
  • Grate or crush the garlic and add it to the melted butter along with the salt and parsley flakes.
  • Pour into the cream cheese and mix well.
  • Scoop back into the tub and refrigerate.


I love using this spread for all kinds of things!
On sandwiches, baked potatoes, crackers, veggies and bread to name a few!
