  • 1 quart canola oil for frying, or as needed

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 large eggs, beaten

  • 1 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs

  • 2 (4.23-oz) packages Boursin Garlic and Fine Herbs Cheese Bites


  1. Pour oil to a depth of 2 inches in a large Dutch oven. Heat oil over medium heat to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). 

  2. While oil heats, set out 3 wide shallow bowls. Fill them individually with flour, beaten eggs, and breadcrumbs.

  3. Working with a handful of bites at a time, gently dredge cheese in flour, and shake off excess. Dip in eggs; let excess drip off. Dredge in breadcrumbs to coat. Place on a small rimmed baking sheet or large plate. Transfer to freezer for 15 minutes. 

  4. Fry boursin bites in batches, cooking until golden, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Set on paper towel-lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining bites. Transfer to a platter and serve immediately.
