My dear friend, Claire, requested a good, potato side-dish recipe. I thought I had posted this one, but I failed to share this deliciousness. My bad. I am re-posting the recipe for making your own Boursin, so you don't have to spend $6 for a little circle of it anymore. Let me know if you like this one as much as we do.....
Budget Boursin Potato Gratin
1-8 ounce package cream cheese, at room
1 stick butter, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon garlic
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon dried basil
1/8 teaspoon dried marjoram
1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
teaspoon black pepper
In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients until
well-mixed. Refrigerate for up to a week.
Boursin Potato Gratin
2 cups half and half
1 Budget Boursin cheese
3 pounds potatoes, thinly sliced
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Butter a 9x13 pan. Melt the Budget Boursin and half and half in a medium saucepan until it is smooth. Layer all of the potato slices in the pan. Pour the cream mixture over the layers. Bake for one hour, uncovered.
