Impressive hors d’oeuvres don’t get much simpler than warm and irresistible baked Camembert. This recipe uses the cheese box for baking, so serving (and cleanup!) are extra easy.
Ingredients: 
  • 1/2 baguette
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 (8.8-ounce) package Mons Camembert
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • Assorted vegetables such as carrot sticks, celery, endive and/or sliced bell peppers for serving
Method: 
Preheat the oven to 400°F.  

Cut baguette diagonally into long, thin slices and brush on both sides with 2 tablespoons of the oil. Place on a baking sheet and toast, turning them over once, until golden brown, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a serving dish.  

Lower the oven temperature to 350°F. Line the baking sheet with parchment paper.  

Remove cheese from the box and unwrap; discard wrapping. Carefully slice off top layer of rind and return cheese, cut side up, to the box. Drizzle with remaining 1 tablespoon oil and sprinkle with rosemary and thyme. Place the box of cheese on the prepared baking sheet and bake until hot and oozing, 15 to 20 minutes. Gently stir with a fork to make sure cheese is melted all the way through, continuing baking as needed.  

Serve immediately with toasted baguette and vegetables.
