Broiled Camembert

Broiled camembert

Imagine hot, soft, creamy, smelly, sticky, gooey, cheesy... Yes, I'm talking about broiled Camembert! That's pure indulgence, I can tell you. I tasted this cheesy yumminess a few weeks ago in our local pub, and I have already made it at home a couple of times since.

This basically doesn't need any recipe because it's so easy and quick to prepare. And even better, there are no dishes to do! You just need one Camembert in a wooden box, some fresh thyme, one garlic clove, olive oil and bread or baguettes for dipping. So easy and it's ready in 20 minutes! If you are having friends over, try serving the cheese as an appetizer. It's great for sharing and it goes well with beer!

Broiled Camembert
Serves 2

1 Camembert cheese in a wooden box
1 tbsp olive oil
1 garlic clove, mashed
2 sprigs fresh thyme


Turn the broiler on (200℃ or medium heat) and keep the oven door open a crack. Unwrap the cheese, discard the wrapping paper but keep the wooden box. In a small bowl, mix the olive oil and garlic. Brush the oil all over the cheese and put the cheese back in the wooden box. Pierce the top of the cheese with the thyme sprigs. Place on the middle rack of the oven for 20 minutes.
Serve with toasted bread or baguettes for dipping.

  3. Simple, tasty and oh so wicked. The only problem with sharing this with friends is that I go quiet and pinch it all while they talk...

  13. This is unbelievably the best, quickest snack fix ever... ours don't come in a wooden box here, but I'll improvise somehow.

  14. I totally love this kind of snack. The problem is that I never make it, as I am the only one in the house eating it and I can see it going wrong if I prepare this for myself. Why I have not thought of making this for friends is beyond me, but I am so gonna be making this soon! Love the shots too!

  17. Thank you everyone! I'm glad to see that hot soft gooey cheese is so popular! :)

    @Saša - dekuju za upozorneni.

    @The Grubworm - hehe, I know what you mean. I would do that myself! :) The only solution is making more than one cheese.

    @El - Thank you El. I'm so glad you like it. Hope you are well!

    @Pinedda - Oops, your comment was probably meant for a different blog! :)

    @tiina { sparkling ink } - Oh, yum! I have to try it with capers. Thanks for the tip! :)

    @sliceofmylyfe - You are welcome! I bet your guests will love this!

    @elle marie - Hi Elle, if you can't get one in a wooden box, just simply try to wrap it in kitchen foil.

    @Junglefrog - Hi Simone! I usually make things that I eat but nobody else does in days when I'm home alone. However sharing with friends is another opportunity to make things you wouldn't have made otherwise! :)

    1. I've just updated the recipe. I set my oven to 200℃, but not all oven allow you to set up the temperature for the broiler.
