Boursin Mashed Potatoes make a delicious side dish that is full of flavor! Creamy mashed potatoes blended with decadent boursin makes for an out of this world recipe!
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes
Servings: 12


  • 5 pounds Russet potatoes, or Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted + 2 tablespoons cut into pieces
  • 3/4 cup half and half
  • 1 (5.2-ounce) package Boursin, , cut into large pieces (I used garlic and fine herbs)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper


  • Place potatoes into large saucepan and add enough water to cover, plus about 1 inch. Cook over medium-low heat until fork tender, about 15-20 minutes.
  • In a medium saucepan, melt butter, add half and half. Heat until simmering.
  • Drain potatoes and pour potatoes back into saucepan used to cook them. Mash potatoes over low heat until smooth. Add the melted butter and half and half mixture and boursin pieces to potatoes. Continue to mash the potatoes until creamy. Then, mix well with a wooden spoon until light, fluffy and smooth. Stir in salt and pepper.
  • Pour potatoes into a serving bowl for serving.
  • Make-Ahead Tip: Prepare mashed potatoes and pour into a casserole dish. Cover tightly with aluminum foil or a lid and refrigerate until about 20 minutes before ready to serve. Then, place in a preheated oven at 350º F for 20 minutes.
  • When you remove from the oven, top with remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and a sprinkle of salt and pepper, if desired.
  • Serve warm.

    Hi Robyn

    What flavor boursin did you use? And how many oz in the package?


    1. Robyn Stone says:

      Hi Kail,
      I used a 5.2 ounce package of the garlic and fine herb flavor. I hope you enjoy it!

  2. Ann says:

    I’ve been making these for 25 years now. My kids make them now. In a pinch if i can’t get (stores out) of the Alouette Cheese I substitute garlic herb pub cheese. Still a old time favorite in my house.
    Buried under 5 feet of snow in NH with more comming!

    These look ridiculously creamy! Mashed potatoes are on the menu for this week, but I may have to shake things up a little and use this recipe 🙂

    I would eat Boursin with a spoon. Putting it in mashed potatoes is genius.

    I discovered this recipe years age but i don’t know from where. However, these are the BEST potatoes! They are made regularly in my house. Thank you for this post.

  9. Charles Boyd says:

    Your mashed potatoes really look great, but foregive me for being stupid, what is boursin?

    1. mom@lthfarm says:

      Don’t feel bad, I didn’t know either! I figured it was a type of cheese, but to be totally honest – have never heard of it! What have we been missing?? LOL

    2. Michael W. says:

      A wonderful cheese that is usually served with crackers. I think its made from Goats Milk.

    3. Virginia Preston says:

      It’s a brand of cheese.
