Baked Camembert Appetizer

Baked Camembert Appetizer ~ Garlic & White Wine make this a winning, gooey cheese appetizer or snack #Appetizer #Snacks

I am a cheese lover ! All cheeses..., I am yet to find a cheese which I do not like.

Roy and the kids are Gouda and Cheddar people, but when I prepare this appetizer, they dig in! We normally have it outside beside the pool, with a light meal to follow.

I would make one, place it in the center on the outside table and each one just dip a cracker or five. Our master bedroom has a sliding door leading to the pool {3 or 4 steps and you're in the pool}, BUT, since we had been burgled numerously, thieves using our yard to get to the neighbors, the poisoning of our dogs and then 3 weeks ago the shooting at Roy and the neighbors {back and side}, we decided to permanently close the sliding door {thieves tried more than once to gain access there, but the dogs sleep inside now, so they alert us}. As we had just, literally a day before the shooting, bought a CCTV system and motion sensors {but could not install on the same day due to bad weather}, we were a bit strapped money-wise, so instead of buying an expensive sliding burglar proof door, we were forced to work with what we had.

Anyhow, I am sharing this piece of information with you, because eating beside the pool, or actually entering that side of the yard is a mission, so there won't be many more time spent there, which is a shame, the best part of our garden is being neglected now.

Over with the negative - here is the positive ... THE RECIPE!

Baked Camembert Appetizer

1 (125g) Camembert Cheese, {do make sure it is ripe and ready}
1 t Garlic, minced
1/4 cup Dry White Wine
3 TB Parsley, chopped
1 TB Chives, chopped

1.) Pre-heat oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F)
2.) Place the Camembert on an oven-proof serving dish - cut small crosses on the top - use the back of a teaspoon and press the minced Garlic into these little crosses.
3.) Pour the White Wine over the cheese - top with the Parsley and Chives {sprinkle some of the herbs on the sides where the wine has run over as well}
4.) Bake for 20 minutes until the cheese start to "puff" upwards - you could test it with a sharp knife to see if it is nice and runny.

Remove from the oven, spoon the wine which has pooled around the cheese over again, serve immediately with savory crackers.

I normally cut the cheese open - flap the rind back and everyone dips away!

Hope you enjoy ;-)  {with a glass of wine, perhaps?}


  1. That sounds and looks like a delicious recipe. I am definitely going to try this next time I have people over. I love cheese too, just about any cheese. I just found you through Debbiedoo's. I'm your newest follower and a recent newbie graduate. It's great to connect with blogging friends on other continents. I hope you'll follow me back at

  2. I am a cheese lover, too! Thanks so much for the delicious recipe! I need to make this!

  4. Ahhh...sounds like a lot of activity going on around there, been through it too and well, its sad that most people I know have too ... the recipe looks DELICIOUS and I think I might have to give this a go! Came over from Earning My Cape!

  5. Hello Linda, I'm so sorry to hear about what has been happening to you and your neighbours, please take care. I found you via StoneGable TTT and have become a follower.
    Baked Camembert is delicious, even just baked in the "round" it comes in. Must try it with wine and garlic. Best Wishes Daphne

  8. That looks so yummy and creamy. I've never had Camembert cheese before, I'll have to keep an eye out! Thanks for linking this up at Meatless Monday recipe hop :)

  9. So easy and yet so elegant! I could and would do this in a heartbeat!!! I'm a big cheese lover, too, so this is perfect for evening cocktails around here! I hate to hear that you are forced to change your way of life because of goofy no-accounts who would rather steal than work for a living. It is truly a shame when we are put in the middle of their thievery and lowlife behaviors! I hope the combination of the camera, motion sensors and dogs puts an end to it all! You should be able to access and have unencumbered use of what you have paid for in this life!!!! (Visiting from Tips, Tidbits & Tutorials.)
