Plus Craig showed you can get it at Amazon.


Or you can come up here-----I have some in my fridge, and there are a couple local bars that sell the individual pieces at the bar with all the meat sticks & hot bologna.


It goes real good with "Blind Robins" or "Salmon Sharpies".:biggrin: Even better with my Smoked Salmon.




Be right there buddy !!

3 tablespoons butter

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

3 cups homemade chicken stock

2 cups heavy cream

2 tablespoons butter

1 large onion, minced

1 large red bell pepper, seeded and chopped very fine

3 jalapeno peppers, roasted, seeded and diced very fine*

1 cup Gruyere cheese, grated

1 dash Kosher salt


Finely chopped parsley for garnish


Melt 3 tablespoons butter in heavy large saucepan over low heat. Add flour and stir 3 minutes. Mix in stock and cream. Increase heat and bring to boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer until thickened, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes.


Meanwhile, melt 2 tablespoons butter in heavy small skillet over low heat. Add onion and green pepper. Cook until soft, stirring occasionally about 8 minutes. Mix in jalapenos. Add cheese to cream mixture and stir until melted. Mix in vegetables. Season with salt, garnish with parsley and serve.


Serves 8.

That sounds good..

Boursin's origins are French (Normandy), but it's now produced and sold globally. It's a soft, spreadable, and somewhat bland cow's milk cheese to which herbs, spices, etc are added. I believe the original Boursin included garlic and herbs, but there are many versions available today.
