Baked Camembert

Still hesitant to put honey

I have read about baked brie already for a while now. But I haven’t really tried it simply because it might muddle the flavors of the baked cheese. I bought some brie and camembert on sale (buy one take one!) recently and only got the time to “bake” it now. I started with the camembert because it was nearer the expiry date than the brie. I couldn’t really taste the difference between the two (someone please enlighten me) so I figured it would all work out the same.

Instead of using the oven, I heated the toaster oven for a couple of minutes, popped in the parchment paper wrapped camembert on for about 3 minutes, and let the residual heat from the toaster heat it. Otherwise, I think it would be too soft since the toaster oven’s heat is too intense.

Out of the “oven” and unto the dinner table. I was afraid of pouring honey all over the entire thing and ruining the cheese. So I sliced a small wedge, drizzled the honey, and spread it on half of a toasted pandesal. And guess what? I will never eat brie or camembert the same way ever again!!!

The honey drizzled on brought out flavors I never knew existed. And it just tasted about 10 times better than just the plain cheese itself. Really really nice.

Now to get more cheese to experiment with 🙂
