Boursin Cheese Scalloped Potatoes 01N

Scalloped Potatoes are one of my favorite foods in the world.  I have lots of recipes for them.  This recipe makes scalloped potatoes that are wonderfully rich, creamy and deliciously buttery.  I’ve honestly never tasted their like.  The Boursin cheese is the secret ingredient.  It’s what really adds all the wonderful extra richness to this recipe. The recipe calls for using Boursin cheese with herbs and garlic so you get the added bonus of all the garlic and herb flavoring, as well creating a unique flavor, not found in any other scalloped potato.

Boursin cheese is a soft, creamy, spreadable cheese that is available in most grocery stores. It’s texture is similar to whipped cream cheese.  It comes in a variety of flavors and is obviously great in this recipe, or just used as a spread for crackers.

Recipe Notes: This recipe is fairly straight forward. The Boursin cheese is stirred into a mixture of cream and half-and-half to make a luscious sauce that really makes these scalloped potatoes ROCK!  The original recipe called for new red potatoes but I prefer it made with russet.

Serves 6-8
