Ingredients & substitutions

  • Boursin – Boursin is a creamy, cow’s milk cheese, mixed with herbs and spices. It bakes up beautifully when breaded. Be sure to keep it in the fridge before you bread and bake it. It’s good that it goes in the oven cold.
  • Flour – All purpose flour works just fine. The flour is put on the Boursin first so the egg sticks, and thereby allowing the panko to stick.
  • Panko – You can also use Italian bread crumbs, but panko is my favorite! The cheese has seasonings, so salt and pepper are all the seasonings you need.
  • Egg – a beaten egg will keep the panko on the Boursin and allow it to crisp up nicely.
  • Honey – pure honey is the best! Sweet and salty is the best combination.
  • Toast – I like French bread the best.
  • Chili Flakes – You can use chili flakes, or if you would like extra spice, use a fresh chili pepper.

How to make this crispy Boursin

Step 1. Bread the cheese: The cheese is best coated while cold so take it out of the fridge right before breading. Room temperature cheese will be too soft. Place flour, beaten egg and seasoned panko breadcrumbs into three separate bowls. Coat the Boursin first in the flour, making sure the cheese is completely coated. Dust off the excess then dip in the egg, once again ensuring it’s well coated and finally coat in the panko. You can repeat the egg and panko steps if you’d like a thicker crust.

Step 2. Bake the Boursin: Place the crumbed cheese in a parchment-lined baking dish. Place in a hot oven and allow to bake for 10-15 minutes until golden brown and crisp.

Step 3. Make the chili honey: While the Boursin bakes, mix the honey with the finely diced chillies. You could alternatively use hot honey. stir together and set aside.

Step 4. Make the ciabatta toasts: Thinly slice the ciabatta and place on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and bake until crisp and golden on both sides.

Step 5. Serve: Once the cheese has baked, remove from the oven. Place on a serving platter or board scattered with thyme alongside the chilli honey and ciabatta toasts or your favorite crackers. Serve your crispy baked Boursin with spicy honey immediately for the best crunch!
