I really love cheese and I eat pretty much every type of cheese there is. This was just one of the many reasons I love living in Switzerland; we have so many more cheeses to choose from, even in just a regular grocery store never mind a fancy cheese store. Lately, I’ve been seeing so many delicious recipes for grilled brie that I got a craving for it. Unfortunately, we didn’t find any brie in the grocery store (or maybe we did and just didn’t recognize it), so we ended up with camembert instead.
I have never grilled brie or any cheese before and was a little nervous about how it would turn out, especially since I was making grilled camembert instead of grilled brie. It was very easy and very tasty and I can’t believe we haven’t tried it before now! It was especially delicious with crackers and peach jam.
If you don’t have a grill (or if its too cold out to grill), you can also use a George Foreman grill or a panini press.
- 1 round of camembert cheese
- Unwrap the camembert (leave the waxy skin on the cheese) and place it directly onto a hot grill.
- Cook for about 5 or 6 minutes. Be careful not to overcook or it will explode. The cheese is done when it feels warm to the touch.
- Remove from grill and serve immediately.
