Walnut Baked Camembert Cheese

Walnut baked Camembert cheese is a great appetiser or perhaps to share with a salad.

The crunch of the walnuts encrusted cheese goes well with the Camembert cheese which does not ooze too much once baked.  I find that Brie cheese, when baked flows out like hot lava.   Still delicious, though.

I had a baked Camembert last December and loved the gooey, cheesy gorgeousness of it.  However, despite the hot, oozy cheese I felt that it lacked a little something.  So I had a play and added ground nuts with some low carb/gluten free bread crumbs to it..and…voila!  Now, this was a cooked cheese that we growled over like a pack of hungry dogs…it is truly delicious with crudities and toasted pieces of almond bread…well, I could eat it by itself in all honesty!  There are no photos of it cut as it was so gooey and I wanted to dive it..so use your imagination or try it yourself to see it in all it’s hot action!

I used walnuts but you could use any other nuts…nuts just go so well with cheese!  I just blitzed the nuts in a food processor and voila!  This makes a wonderful starter or a great supper dish!  I used thyme purely as I enjoy it with walnuts.  Feel free to use the herb or spice of your choice.   You could do mini cheeses with this too and have it with a salad.  Hey, who I am kidding, bake it and eat it whole, I won’t judge you…..I’ve probably done it myself! 😉
