A simple dish that I’ve seen on tv multiple times, but never thought to try it myself. Camembert baked in it’s box. Although I’m not much of a cheese lover, I do crave it once in a while.
Simple and fairly quick!
- Camembert in a wooden box
- 2 cloves of garlic, sliced
- Fresh rosemary
- Little bit of honey
- Freshly ground pepper
- Toasted slices of ciabatta
Unwrap the Camembert and put back in its box. Remove any stickers and put the box inside the lid.
Cut slits spread over the Camembert. Put the garlic and rosemary inside the slits. The rosemary will go in easier if you push it in with a knife.
Drizzle with a bit of honey and freshly ground pepper.
Put the box on a sheet of tin foil and fold in the points and scrunch them up, making a closed parcel. Bake the Camembert in the center of the oven at 200C/390F for about 20 to 30 minutes. Check the Camembert after 20 minutes.
This Camembert came out of the fridge and was fairly firm. It took about 30 minutes in our gasoven, before our Camembert was nice and gooey. I put a couple of slices of ciabatta in the oven, near the end of the cooking time.
It’s a simple cheese fondue for two. The garlic gives off a lovely flavor to the soft and creamy cheese. Nice for lunch or as a somewhat heavy starter.
Instead of bread you could dip baked potato wedges or vegetables into the cheese.
