    1. Rye Bread Squares: Spread each side of the rye bread with a little Boursin. Cut each slice into eight small squares and top with your chosen topping. If using the tomato halves, garnish with chopped chives and a twist of black pepper.
    2. Bruschetta: Rub the garlic clove over the toasted bread slices then drizzle over a little olive oil. Spread each slice with 1tsp Boursin cheese, then cut the slices in half. Place a cherry tomato onto each piece of toast then garnish with a little fresh basil. As an alternative to the tomatoes top with pieces of Waitrose Italian mixed peppers, drained and thinly sliced, with a twist of black pepper. Serve within an hour of preparing.
    3. Tortilla Bites: Spread each tortilla liberally with Boursin cheese, then spread each with 5ml (1tsp) of pesto. Roll the tortillas tightly into cigars and slice into 7-8. Serve on cocktail sticks, putting two rounds on each stick.
    4. Roasted Baby Potatoes with Boursin and Crispy Bacon: Place the potatoes in a roasting tin, drizzle over the olive oil and a little sea salt. Roast in a preheated oven 220°C, gas mark 7 for 35-40 minutes until tender. While they are cooking, dry fry the bacon until crisp, drain on kitchen paper. Split the cooked potatoes in half and cool a little. Spread each half liberally with Boursin and top with crispy bacon. Alternatively, blend the bacon with a 150g pack of Boursin. Serve the potato halves on cocktail sticks with the dip. Garnish with some freshly chopped chives.
