Our Boursin Cheese Scalloped Potatoes Are Creamy, Deliciously, And Uniquely Buttery. They Have A Velvety Texture and A Rich Garlicy-Herb Flavor!
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. Its 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 For Boursin Cheese Scalloped Potatoes:
This recipe is fairly straightforward. 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.

Can these be made ahead or do you recommend baking immediately? I tried to make scalloped potatoes ahead one other time and they were so watery, I had to throw them out——haven’t had the nerve to try that again.
Hi, Gail. Yes, you can make this ahead of time. I grabbed the instructions in my scalloped potatoes and ham recipe:
“I like to make it in its entirety and then hold off on baking. Before it’s time to go in the oven, I cover it tightly and place it in the fridge, for no longer than 24 hours.
When you’re ready to bake it, preheat the oven and bake that perfect cheesy scalloped potatoes and ham casserole until bubbly.”
Just made this recipe and it turned out so delicious! I added garlic powder and onion powder to the cheese mixture while cooking and also to each layer of the potatoes. This will be a staple in our house! Thank you for this great recipe!
Hi, Fran! I looove your version! Garlic and onion powder are my favorite 🙂 Thank you for sharing your review! I’m happy it was a hit!
