Baked Brie (Cheese) May 16, 2012

This is largely based on Jamie Oliver’s Baked Camembert recipe and was (obviously) part of the Cheese dinner.


  • 2 x 175g King Island Triple Cream Brie cheeses, room temperature
  • 3 peeled garlic cloves
  • 6 small sprigs of rosemary
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • 2 tablespoons dried cranberries
  • 3 tablespoons sliced almonds


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celcius.
  2. Boil a saucepan of water, and blanch the garlic for about four minutes.
  3. Unwrap the cheeses and take off the rind on the top, leaving about 1 cm on around the rim.
  4. Push each cheese into a 1 cup ramekin. (If the cheeses hadn’t fit, I would’ve taken a thin wedge out of the cheese and then pushed it together to make it a bit smaller.)
  5. Chop the garlic into thin slices and push into the cheese. Also push the rosemary sprigs into the cheese.
  6. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt.
  7. Put in the oven for 15-20 minutes until runny, then remove. It doesn’t matter if it starts to bubble.
  8. Put some bread in the oven about 10 mins in, to get it warm and crusty.
  9. Also, while waiting, chop up the cranberries and almonds and mix together.
  10. Serve the cheeses with the crusty bread and with the fruit and nut mix to either sprinkle on, or just dunk the cheese-coated bread into.

Serves 6.
