Camembert Baked and Served with Bruschetta

I first raved on about Camembert baked in its box back in April 08 but since then I have quite got into serving it with Bruschetta; homemade of course.

Baked Camembert

Camembert also it looks great served in its box as long as it's wooden of course and not a plastic-coated box!

But however you decide to bake it, it's really easy and so very, very yummy.

Camembert Baked in its Box with Bruschetta

You can bake the Camembert in its wooden box of using a Camembert baker as I did.


250g Camembert Cheese
1 clove garlic - peeled
half a teaspoon of white wine

Day-old French stick


Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6

Remove the cheese from its 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.

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 10 to 15 minutes or until golden and crisp.

  1. MMMMMM.....melted camembert !!MMMMM... Thanks, Jan!

  2. I do keep meaning to do this. It's on a par with mussells in terms of 'sharing' food. The wine's a good idea - like fondue.

  3. my tongue is watering seeing all these delicious stuff.

  4. I love doing this, it also works well with herby roast potatoes (little waxy ones are the best). Yum.

  5. Another yummy idea Jan....Not sure if I can eat a whole box of Camembert to myself though! ;o)

  6. Melted cheese on bread...DELICIOUS!!

  7. Jan, I'm trying to put together a menu for an informal dinner party next weekend and this is a serious contender for the starter spot.

  11. haha, I love that meerkat Jan!! Cheese baked in the box, great idea and delicious one too! I'm like Katie, I love it with potatoes.

  12. Jan, throw some foil-wrapped garlic and roast it with the cheese. The two together on the bread are sinfully delish.

  13. This looks fabulous, Jan. Yum!

  14. delicious, your recipe is top in google for baked camembert. I'm putting the oven on right now (though I might wrap the camembert in baked paper before I put it back in the box).
