Baked Camembert

I have bought a lovely Camembert that is meant for baking. The big question is what do I eat with it/dip in it, once it's baked?
Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

Crusty bread with it is the best!

Crusty bread and slices of cooked potato, it's delicious! Shove some garlic cloves sliced up into it before you bake it for garlicy cheesy heaven!

Cranberry sauce goes very well.

Agreed! Either a baguette or a nice crusty bloomer...

Do you dip the bread into the baked Camembert or do you spread molten cheese onto bread? Sorry to be thick!

Aldi do a nice part baked sourdough baguette which goes perfectly with their camembert..yum!

Dipit. I also like using carrot sticks, cucumber and breadsticks

You need something green or salady as a side.

Bread. Lots of bread. I also then can’t resist buying various meats and pates to go with 🥰

We do a baked brie on Christmas Eve every year, I just serve it with crusty baguette (part baked) and we all rip bits off and dip in...yummy!

You do??

Yeah. I do. Or it just feels all gluggy. A nice salad with a sharp dressing sets it off nicely. I also prefer a nice crisp white whine - maybe a Chablis or a Reisling.

You can get one of those tiger loafs, dig out a Camembert style shape in the bread and put the Camembert in it. Bake in oven 😍

Spread or dip, as you like. Bread, new potatoes, chips, gherkins, pickled onions, sausages have all found their way into a Camembert over the years in this house.
Might have to go and buy one now 😁

Nadiya had a lovely recipe on her show this past week for a cranberry and chilli bread roll and baked camembert thing.

Pigs in blankets well f**k me sideways. You angel from heaven above.

I tend to skip anything green and drink copious amounts of red wine, that also helps with the glugginess..

Why the fuck have I never thought of this, I was going to say broccoli is nice!

This is a very interesting idea! Does the bread become like a giant piece of toast?

Its normally pizza night on a friday here, not tonight, not for me. This sounds like heaven!

Smear the top with sweet chilli jam or onion marmalade as you bring out of the oven.
Then dip in crusty bread or sourdough slices. Yummy 😋

Baked camembert with freshly cooked part baked bread, served with a nice fresh crispy salad.

Crusty bread, celery, carrots, peppers, cranberry sauce and red wine to drink is compulsory!
