This keto baked camembert is served with delicious low carb dough balls for a hearty appetizer or a Festive treat.
Creamy camembert is baked with the low carb bread rolls around the cheese making it an elegant dish for any party or gathering. The camembert is topped with a delicious combination of walnuts and fresh thyme.
The low carb dough balls are baked with a Fathead dough recipe and flavoured with rosemary to compliment the creamy strong taste of camembert. Tear one in half and dip into the hot, creamy cheese.
Enjoy this easy low carb appetizer as a romantic dish for two or a great crowd pleaser. The Chief Taster and I found this a hearty dish and only needed a few dough balls dipped in the creamy Camembert to be content and full.
CAN I EAT CAMEMBERT ON KETO?
The joy of keto is that cheese is firmly on the table! Baking the Camembert is simple but full of flavour. All you need to have is a something low carb to dip into the melted, gooey cheese.
A note on the nutritional information for this recipe is that I have separated the dough balls and cheese as the proportion of low carb dough balls you eat in this dish may vary. We could not manage all of them between us because they are low carb, we find them very filling.
The fat head dough for the bread rolls needs to rest in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. It makes the dough more manageable to roll.
I like to use an egg wash on the keto bread rolls for a shine to them and it also makes it easier for any topping to stick to it. I sprinkled a few bread rolls with sesame seeds and chia seeds for crunch and decorative purposes.
This keto baked camembert is best served immediately. You can make the Fathead dough bread rolls ahead and then assemble them around the cheese when you are ready to make. Try a side of cranberry sauce on the side too.
Flavour the low carb bread rolls with other herbs or keep them plain. I used dried rosemary as it is a herb that goes well with cheese. With the added bonus that it smells delicious when baking.
