Baked Camembert with a crisp breaded layer around is a wonderful comfort food in winter. My husband and I enjoyed it often when we lived in Germany.

Since we live in the US, we can’t buy the frozen version of this delicious snack. I have to make it from scratch and that is not complicated at all. It is prepared within a few minutes and the frying and baking don’t take long.

With Cranberry Jam

Actually, any kind of jam fits perfectly with this melted camembert. Traditionally we have it with “Preiselbeer Konfitüre” which is cranberry jam and that is a match made in heaven.

Salad as a Side

In restaurants the serve this dish with a small salad as a side and also some baguette. I think this is the best pairing but you can also just eat the baked camembert with the cranberry jam and enjoy a glass of wine with it.

    I find that this dish is better if you remove the skin of the cheese. I then chill it before coating. Don’t fry beforehand put straight into the oven and bake for 10 – 15 minutes. serve with any fruit preserve and toasted bread.
