BAKED CAMEMBERT with a TWIST






 I've been playing with the camera again and made another quick and easy recipe for you to have a go at. It's really simple and straight forward. Everything was bought easily from a supermarket and the only cooking involved was popping it in the oven for 15 minutes.



You will need:
2 sheets of Ready Rolled Puff Pastry
2 Tbsp Pesto
4 Slices Parma Ham
1 x 250g Camembert
1 Garlic Clove, sliced
1 Rosemary Sprig
2 tsp Olive Oil
1 Egg
Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Lay out your first pastry sheet and give it a little extra roll to make it slightly wider. Use a dinner plate to cut around and make a circle. I cut it a little bigger than my plate to get as much pastry as possible. Do this with the second sheet and leave to one side.

Mark the centre of your pastry using the cheese box then spread the pesto to cover the outer ring. Top the pesto with the Parma Ham then layer the second sheet of pastry on top.


Use a sharp knife the sun rays in to your pastry. I find it easier to cut it into four sections then divide each section. Once you have made all your cuts, twist each ray three time and lay it back down. 


Now place the cheese in the centre, cut slashes into the top and poke your rosemary and garlic into the slashes and drizzle with olive oil. To finish, brush the pastry with egg wash and season the whole thing with black pepper.

Bake for 15 minutes at 180C


Mind you don't burn your tongue on that hot cheese xXx
