If you love melted oozing cheese you can dip into say hello to the camembert hedgehog. It’s a cheesy tear and share fondue which originated on the food channel foodenvy. It’s a very easy, yet really impressive mini bite to rustle up next time your friends pop by.
WHAT YOU NEED
Tiger loaf (a white bloomer or any similar shaped loaf)
Bread loaf (tiger/bloomer or something similar)
Olive oil (about 8 tablespoons)
3 garlic cloves
A bunch of rosemary
HOW TO MAKE IT
- Firstly, cut a hole in the centre of the bread using the base of the camembert box as a guide.
- Next, hollow out enough bread so that the camembert will fit neatly inside.
- Slice off the skin on one side of the cheese and place in the hole (open side up).
- Score the bread in diagonal lines and then criss-cross the other way to make cube shapes. Cut the bread deeply but don’t cut through the base.
- In a bowl mix the oil, garlic and rosemary and then spoon or brush in between each slit so that the loaf is covered liberally. Sprinkle with sea salt.
- Add a sprig of rosemary to the top of the camembert and then put in the oven for about 20 mins at 170degrees. Keep an eye out as you don’t want the bread to dry out.
- Pour yourself a glass of wine and gorge all by yourself! Sorry – we meant graciously share with friends and great company.
If you have leftover bread from the base why not whizz in the liquidiser to make rosemary breadcrumbs. Store in the freezer to use for your next roast!
