Boursin is more than just cheese. It’s like, the ice cream of cheese.
It is so creamy and delicious. I’m a big fan of the herb and garlic flavour. Spread it on a slice of baguette and I’m the happiest kid at the party.
This holiday season, our fridge has been filled to bursting with delicious party food. We have a cheese drawer that could not possibly fit anymore cheese. Among them, the Boursin. Specifically, the cranberry pepper flavour.
It’s probably my second favourite of the Boursin family.
It has little flecks of peppercorn and swirls of cranberry, creating this awesome flavour contrast. It’s perfect for the holiday season.
The only thing that could make it better? Bacon. Bacon makes everything better.
I love these flavours together for the holidays.
I’ve been looking for the perfect New Year’s Eve recipe. Something elegant, but easy. The holidays are busy and these are impressive, but don’t take hours to prepare. It was my first time working with wonton wrappers and I couldn’t believe how simple it was to fold them up and make them stick.
If you want to take an extra step, I recommend using my Cranberry Onion Jam recipe in place of cranberry sauce. It’s a bit more savoury with serious holiday flavour.
Pop champagne. Pop a few of these in the oven and get ready to celebrate the New Year.
Cranberry Boursin wontons
- 1/2 package of wonton/egg roll wrappers (about eight sheets)
- 1/3 cup of cranberry sauce (or my cranberry onion jam)
- 1/2 package of bacon, cooked and crumbled
- 1 package of Boursin cranberry pepper cheese (or plain)
- 1/3 cup of cream cheese
- 1 egg
- Mix your cranberry sauce, crumbled bacon, Boursin and cream cheese in a large bowl.
- Whisk an egg in a small bowl. This will be used as an egg wash to hold the wontons together.
- Separate wonton wrappers and slice each square into four smaller squares. Fill each with about a teaspoon to a teaspoon and a half of the cranberry cheese blend. Fold each corner down over the filling, brushing or spooning on a dab of egg wash in between each fold. Press down slightly to ensure the wontons are sealed.
- Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment or foil. Bake in an oven preheated to 350ºF for 10-12 minutes or until the four points are golden brown. Serve immediately or place in the freezer until ready to reheat in the oven and serve.
