I will never forget the night I had Boursin cheese for the first time. A friend had brought it to a get together. I was smitten. If I could stuff Boursin cheese into everything and anything, I would. But unfortunately, that's not realistic. However, stuffing it into these Prosciutto wrapped Boursin stuffed pickles is completely realistic, especially because they are a great low- carb appetizer with only 4 ingredients, keto and gluten-free.
Stuffed pickles are popular any time of the year when you want a low-carb snack. They are a great finger food for parties, especially New Year's eve parties.
That night my obsession with Boursin cheese was so obvious that my friend sent me home with the remainder of it claiming “it was better me than her." And afterwards, when I told her that I couldn’t stop eating it, "I’m sorry," was all she said. At the time I didn’t understand why she would apologize.
There aren't as many pickle appetizers out there as there should be, so I am doing my part and adding this one to the world's pickle menu. And although I have always loved pickles, my love affair with Boursin cheese has been the most passionate of all my food love affairs. So my beloved Boursin seemed like the perfect stuffing for these guys. So, if you love stuffed pickles, you'll love this recipe!
