BAKED CAMEMBERT

 

A couple of years ago I went through a low carb phase which involved a lot of peanut butter and a lot of cheese. A lot of cheese. 

Even though I ate a sickening amount of cheese, I never got sick of it. I had to quit the habit though for fear of what might be happening to my insides.

This is the ultimate cheese dish. It's the most delicious way to consume cheese, and also the fastest (I can eat this in one sitting). A super easy way to impress guests at your next dinner party. Just be sure you have enough to feed everyone cause guaranteed they'll be coming back for seconds.

BAKED CAMEMBERT IN PUFF PASTRY 

1 wheel of Camembert (brie works well too)
1 sheet of puff pastry
3 tablespoons apricot or raspberry jam
Small handful of slivered almonds (optional)
Wafer crackers 

  1. Preheat oven to 200˚C.
  2. Place Camembert in the middle of the puff pastry (leave skin on).
  3. Spoon jam on top of the camembert and sprinkle almonds on top.
  4. Tightly fold the puff pastry up and around the camembert and pinch together the edges to make a tight seal.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes. 
  6. Leave for 5 minutes to cool down a bit and serve with wafer crackers.
