Easy Baked Camembert

This is a quick dish for supper which only takes about 15 minutes tops to rustle up …. including cooking! This is one of Julie’s favourites

Ingredients: (serves one hungry person or two as a starter)

president camembert

Round Camembert cheese, boxed

Drizzle of olive oil

Fresh basil leaves

Fresh salad – lettuce, cucumber, tomato, onion

You can also add a sprig of fresh thyme into the slit if you want

Heat oven to 180 degrees

Simply remove the lid and the cellophane wrapping from the camembert and place the boxed cheese on to a baking tray. Cut a slit across the cheese and drizzle olive oil inside the slit. Add torn fresh basil leaves and put the tray into oven. Bake for approx 10/15 minutes at 180 degrees, gas mark 4/5 or until cheese has browned slightly on top and the inside is hot and runny.

While the cheese is cooking, whip up a small salad.

Serve the baked camembert straight from the box on a plate, surrounded by salad. I’ve added some sliced mushrooms and garlic lightly fried in butter. Sorted!IMG_4462
