Fabulous Boursin Stuffed Mushrooms

Boursin stuffed mushrooms

I discovered this recipe while perusing Boursin cheese recipes after trying and falling inlove with with a recipe my friend Jill gave me for Boursin stuffed chicken.  My boyfriend, family and I just flipped over the taste of the Boursin cheese in Jill’s sauce, so I absolutely had to find other recipes using that cheese.  And I love mushrooms, so this recipe seemed like the perfect choice.

These stuffed mushrooms are out of this world and super super easy!

I first made them last November for Thanksgiving dinner with my family, a double batch, and they disappeared as soon as they cooled down enough for everyone to put in their mouths without burning their tongues.  I was extremely pleased at how good they taste.  When Christmas Eve dinner rolled around, my family once again requested the mushrooms, and they again disappeared almost as fast as I could make them.

Boursin isn’t exactly a low-fat cheese, so I don’t make these very often, only when cooking for a group — otherwise, I’d eat them all up myself.  But they are ridiculously easy, so full of rich flavor, and an excellent appetizer at dinner parties or even a romantic dinner for two.

    Thank you! It’s been years since I worked with WordPress (I do most of my sites in Drupal). But, for just a blog, WordPress is so much quicker and easier.

    And as far as the food and recipes, well… it’s a bit of a passion of ours. We enjoy making them, and sharing them with others.
