Whole Foods used to offer a roast beef and boursin panino that was absolutely delicious, but the one by me doesn't offer it anymore. :(

Some great ideas! Thanks! I've used it on crackers, plain, and stuffed in chicken in the past. I've never used it with beef or pasta and it sounds like those are great applications for it. I knew you'd all have some good ideas.

I just came home from Whole Foods. I will look next time I go for the roast beef and boursin panino. I suppose I could use it for paninis here at home, too. I bet some of the ideas that larry stewart gave for wraps would also go well with paninis.

Er, the one by me doesn't offer that one anymore, much to my dismay. Yours might, or you might be able to talk them into it.

I just thought it wouldn't hurt to look. I don't know how the local WF stores vary from region to region. It sounds good, so I'll at least ask.

I never stop hoping, and stopping by the panini counter! Just didn't want to get your hopes up :)

It would probably be easy enough to make them at home, with a brick for the press. I'm trying to remember what else went onto the panino. I could probably just experiment until I get it right...

It sounds good enough to experiment with, definitely! I have a panini press, so I goof around with it anyway. If you figure it out, let us know. It sure sounds yummy!

Rocco DiSpirito has several Boursin ideas in his latest cookbook. My daughter likes his new show on A&E and so we picked up the book ... now the cheese! I also found a Wisconsin Dairy version of it to try, along with several recipes from the internet to make my own.

It really is wonderful stuff all by itself, and downright EXPENSIVE. Renard's Cheese (in Door County) has a white spread that is half the price and every bit as sinful as the Boursin, IMHO. If you can get it, try it. In the summer, we put a little cheese on a Keebler Toasted (Onion flavor), then a sliver of shaved ham. My daughter and I sit on the back of the boat and snack away ... it's really quite a simple treat but surely loaded with fat and calories. :0)

Wow it sounds good. I have never used it before but seen it in the store. Next time I see it I am going to pick some up and give it a try.
