Baked Camembert with Garlic & Rosemary

This has to be one of the easiest yet most crowd pleasing appetisers around!  5 minutes prep, 20 minutes in the oven and you have a huge gooey, melted cheese that is perfect for dipping.  I like to make my Baked Camembert with garlic and rosemary, but you could add any flavours you want.  Honey and thyme would be great, or sun-dried tomatoes and olives, the possibilities are endless.  Served with crudités or my Almond Flour Crackers there are so many ways to switch up this dish!

Start by preheating the oven to 180C (350F).  Then you need to prep the Baked Camembert with Garlic and Rosemary.  I buy the Camembert that comes in its own wooden box as it holds it altogether in the oven.  If you can’t get one like this then you can just wrap everything tightly in tinfoil although it may be a bit gooey and messy when it comes out.

Remove the top of the box and the wax wrapping.  Slice the garlic thinly into slivers and tear the rosemary into small sprigs.  Score lines into the Camembert and push the garlic and rosemary pieces into the cheese.

Place the top of the wooden box back on the Camembert.  Wrap the entire box tightly with tin foil and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.


Meanwhile prepare the dipping sticks.  I like to serve mine with Crudités , some of my Almond Flour Crackers, some of my toasted Grain-Free Bread or some pretzels/breadsticks (for the wheat-eaters)!  I sliced up some cucumber, peppers (capsicum) and carrots for this version.

Remove the cheese from the oven and carefully remove the tin foil.  Be careful as the cheese may have oozed out and will be extremely hot.  Place in the centre of a serving platter (I love my Camembert Serving Platter as it has a space for the cheese in the middle) and arrange the crudités or crackers around it.  Remove the lid from the Baked Camembert with Garlic & Rosemary and it’s ready to serve!  Make sure you serve it hot from the oven as it cools down fast and becomes stiffer and harder to dip.  You can always put it back in the oven to melt lightly again if this is the case.  Mine never lasts long enough to firm up!Baked Camembert with Garlic & Rosemary by Emma Eats & Explores - Grainfree, Glutenfree, Refined Sugarfree, Paleo, SCD, Vegetarian, Low CarbA very easy appetiser that will impress everyone and leave you plenty of time to prepare the rest of the meal!  It serves around 4 as a starter or appetiser but I also like to serve it as a very easy dinner for two.  A dish of hot melted cheese – what a perfect meal!  It reminds me of watching a movie in front of the fire on a winter’s evening.  Warming and comforting and absolutely decadent!
