Jan's Chicken Teriyaki Skewers

Now these were nice, very nice indeedy!  Moist tender chicken with lovely charred bits of sticky goodness.
They're really very easy to do and all you need to serve them is some nice pita bread and salad.  Although greedy us had some skinny chips with them too!

Camembert Baked in the Box with Tiny Bruschetta for Dipping

Sticky gooey Camembert baked and oozing from it's box.  Serve with tiny bruschetta for scooping or dipping, perfect for sharing.

Baked Camembert

Camembert in box 
Perfect for two to share:
250g Camembert in a wooden box
a very tiny amount of olive oil
1 peeled clove garlic
just a half a teaspoon of white wine

How to do it:
Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6
Remove the cheese from it's box - take off any wrapping then put the cheese back in the box.
This particular make has a sticker on the bottom of the cheese, so be sure to remove that too.  Make a good amount of tiny holes with a fork all over the top rind of the cheese.

Rub the garlic all over the top of the cheese - the smallest amount of olive oil will help you to rub the garlic over the cheese much easier.

Drizzle the wine into the holes. Slice a small sliver of garlic and place it on top of the cheese.  Put the lid back on the box loosely and bake in your preheated oven for about 20 to 25 minutes, until hot and bubbling.  Keep an eye on it though as you don't want over cooked or it will be running out everywhere.

Remove the slice of garlic and serve immediately while still lovely and gooey.

Tiny bruschetta:
You will need some (as much as you fancy making) day old small baguettes.
Cut into thin slices and drizzle a shallow baking tray with extra virgin olive oil and salt and pepper.
Press each piece of bread into the tray and turn over. Drizzle with a little more olive oil and add a little more salt and pepper.
Bake in a preheated oven 200c/400f or Gas 6 for about 10 to 15 minutes or until golden and crisp.
They emerge from the oven, crispy and crunchy and perfect for dipping.

Camembert Baked in the Box with Bruschetta

I first raved on about Camembert baked in it's box back in April 08 but since then I have quite got into serving it with Bruschetta - home made of course.
Please see my updated baked Camembert post here.


Marks and Spencer included baked Camembert as one of the starter courses in their 'Valentine's Dine in for £20' offer this year.
They sell it wrapped in foil ready to bake, but I like to bake it in its box adding a little wine and garlic for extra yumminess!
Also it looks great served in its box. However you decide to bake it, it's really easy and so very, very yummy. See how to do the Camembert below.

For the Bruschetta:
You will need half of a day old French stick - or as much as you fancy making of course.
Cut into thinnish slices drizzle a shallow baking tray with extra virgin olive oil and salt and pepper. Then press each piece of bread into the tray and turn over. Drizzle with a little more olive oil and add a little more salt and pepper.
Bake in a preheated oven for about 15 to 25 minutes or until golden and crisp.
They emerge from the oven like this, crispy and crunchy and perfect for dipping.

For Two to Share, you will need:
250 g Camembert Cheese,1 clove garlic - peeled, half a teaspoon of white wine
How to do it:
Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6
Remove the cheese from it's box - take off the wrapping then put the cheese back in the box.
Make a good amount of tiny holes with a fork all over the top rind of the cheese. Now rub the garlic all over the top of the cheese - The smallest amount of olive oil will help you to rub the garlic easier.
Now drizzle the wine into them and put the lid back on the box.
Bake in the oven for about 20 to 25 minutes, until hot and bubbling. Keep an eye on it though as you don't want it all running out like mine almost did.
Also if you bake it in foil it will cook quicker so check it at around 15 minutes.

The result is sticky, gooey, melty cheese that oozes in it's box. Just dip in the bruschetta.  Oh and a glass or two of wine is vital.
