Baked Brie (or Camembert)

This baked brie is an impressive looking dish (but very, very easy! Shhh… don’t tell anyone!). This is the perfect starter for your meal, or as a component of a wine and cheese night. It can be whipped up in about 15 minutes and will be eaten in less than half than time!

 

  • 1 wheel of cheese (brie or camembert), preferably packaged in a box
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • Fresh rosemary
  • Splash of olive oil
  • Splash of white wine
  • French bread to serve

 

Preheat the oven to 180C. Cut crisscrosses in the top of the cheese. If the cheese came in a wooden box, return the cheese to the box and place on a baking tray, otherwise put the cheese into a ramekin or small baking dish. Ideally you want the baking dish to be as close to the size of the cheese as possible so that when the cheese bakes, it doesn’t have much room to spread out as it melts.

Mix the crushed garlic with the olive oil and drizzle over the cheese. Stick small pieces of rosemary into some of the cuts and then sprinkle with a very small amount of white white. Place in the oven for 10 minutes and then serve straight away with crusty, french bread.

Serves 4, or 3, or 2, or 1 (it really just depends how much you and your friends love cheese).
