Baked Camembert with Rosemary

Baked camembert with French bread is such an easy but delicious option when you have friends over for drinks. When my friends come over I don’t want to be too busy cooking to enjoy being with them so I make sharing boards with cheese, biscuits and all other lovely things on for everyone to help themselves to. I always bake a camembert and serve it with lots of fresh French bread from the bakery. It’s also lovely to add cranberry sauce for dipping.

Perfect with a glass of champagne.

I stud it with rosemary from my garden, the only surviving herb. Did I mention gardening is not my forté?!


1 camembert

A few sprigs of fresh rosemary

French bread and salted butter to serve


Pre heat oven to 200c / 180c fan

Remove your camembert from the box and stud with your sprigs of rosemary, then wrap in greaseproof paper. Pop back in the box.

Place on a baking tray and bake in the centre of the oven for 20 minutes until the cheese is all melted and gooey.

Remove from oven, unwrap and serve in the box on a plate with lots of French bread and salted butter.
