This baked camembert recipe is what dreams are made of. Creamy, luscious camembert is topped with blueberry jam that has been mixed with a touch of wine, thyme, pepper and then baked. When it’s removed from the oven, it’s topped with fresh berries and walnuts. What you then have is oozing, melted cheese, perfect for slathering on some toasted baguette. Now that’s good eats!
Baked Camembert Recipe with Berries
This recipe couldn’t get easier, you guys. I could honestly make a meal out of just this. Annnnd, I could totally eat this all by myself. I’m pretty sure my clothes wouldn’t thank me, but my belly would.
Rind or no rind? Some people like to eat the rind of camembert cheese, which I have done in the past. However, for this recipe, I removed it, which I recommend you do too; it makes things a lot easier when serving so all you have to do when it’s baked is to get dunking with that bread.
In under 15 minutes (including prep), this baked camembert recipe could be yours. Yep. No lie. Mix your favourite blueberry jam with some wine (cause this cheese, like most, pairs beautifully with wine), add a pinch of black pepper and some fresh thyme. Bake for about 8-10 minutes. When the time is up, carefully remove from the oven, garnish with a few fresh blueberries, more thyme and walnuts if your little heart desires. Serve alongside fresh baked baguette. Told ya it was easy!
Use what you Have!
I’m all about using what you have on hand, especially when a recipe is as simple as this one. Or, if you don’t like a certain ingredient, sub it out with something comparable. If you don’t have blueberry jam in the fridge or strawberries are your jam (haha…no pun intended), then switch it up! This recipe is pretty laid back (if a recipe could be that). Another lovely combination to use with this camembert is strawberry jam with tarragon and fresh strawberries. The upcoming summer season begs for easy recipes. No one has time to spend hours in the kitchen when the sun is blasting outside, am I right? Make something easy (like this recipe), go outside and enjoy the company of friends and family. Good stuff!
Dinner Party Recipe
Speaking of enjoying time with friends and family—>you should always have an emergency supply of cheese in your fridge. Yes, this is not a drill. Why? Because it is so darn easy to whip something up quickly when unexpected guests arrive at your house and they want a little nosh. Put this deliciousness in front of them and it looks like you have your fancy pants on. But, secretly, you know how easy it was. Then again, if you served this to every guest that came to your house, they’d never leave 😉
Hope you love this baked camembert recipe as much as we do in our home!
Until next time, take care and chit chat again soon 🙂
