Baked Camembert in White Wine

I am a soft cheese lover of note!  I cannot get enough of Brie and Camembert cheese and will eat it until I make myself sick.

So when Tanya mailed me her recipe and pictures I let out the hugest ‘squeeeeeee’ ever.  Im off to the shops after work to get the ingredients 🙂

A simple recipe that is totally delicious if you love cheese!

Ingredients:

  • 1 wheel of Camembert cheese
  • Small amount of white wine of your choice
  • Fresh Garlic (either a clove of garlic, or I used crushed garlic from woolies)
  • Fresh Herbs – thyme or rosemary etc
  • Ramekins of approximately the same size of your wheel of Camembert

Method:

  • Preheat oven to 180
  • Pop the wheel of cheese into the ramekin… I had to squash mine in quite a bit
  • Poke cheese with a fork
  • Push a clove of garlic into the cheese… since i used crushed garlic, i basically just wiped a teaspoon in the tub of garlic and then smeared it onto the cheese… just very little as I didn’t want to be stinky the next day!
  • Stick the fresh herbs into the cheese
  • Pour the white wine over the cheese. You need very very little. Probably only 2-5 tablespoons – depending on the size of your ramekin
  • Pop the lids onto your ramekins (or cover with foil)
  • Put on a baking tray (in case of leakage!) and bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes.
  • In the mean time, slice up some crusty French loaf
  • When the cheese is done, remove from oven, take out the stalks of herbs, and the clove of garlic if you used one…
  • Use your fresh bread to stir it up and enjoy your own little cheese pot!
  • Be careful of the hot ramekins though!

note one wheel of Camembert may be slightly too much for one person as it is quite rich , so I’d suggest sharing one portion between two people… or if you have hungry people, one portion per person could do!
