Looking for something different to switch up your appetizer routine? Need a new brunch dish for Saturday morning? Sick of the same old rich, chocolate desserts? Do you love rosé as much as I do??
Yes, yes, yes and yes. This baked camembert wears many hats and can act as your appetizer, brunch or dessert–maybe even all three if you time it just right! 15 minutes is all that stands between you and this melty, mouthwatering baked camembert dish. Soak your raspberries in a combination of rosé, sugar and lemon zest while you bake that wheel of camembert and slice your baguette. Throw it all together and enjoy immediately.
I feel like it goes without saying…but this would be really great with a big glass of rosé. It would probably also be great while relaxing in a chez lounge chair out on your patio, with a good book, on a slightly breezy summer day. Maybe I’ll add that as a serving suggestion? Best enjoyed alone in the quiet paradise of your backyard when your husband took the kids to his parents for the day.
And if you’re plate doesn’t look like this while you’re eating this cheese dish, you’re not doing it right, okay? The messier the better. Ain’t nothin’ clean and dainty about ooey gooey melted cheese.
Also, if you’re more of a brie person, feel free to use brie cheese instead of camembert! They are very similar; I’ve heard camembert described as having a bit more earthy flavor than brie. But they melt around the same point and taste equally delicious to me!Print
Smooth, creamy, melted camembert mixed with rose soaked raspberries and fresh mint–this baked cheese dish is sure to wow your guests!
