Thyme and Garlic Baked Camembert

Is there really any other way to kick off a Thanksgiving feast than with Gooey Cheese? I think not. Thyme and Garlic Baked Camembert is quite possibly one of the easiest yet most gorgeous and decadent appetizers you could serve this holiday season. I can promise you’re going to love it!

Baked Camembert is one of those throw back recipes that your grandma would totally make. I mean, I’m pretty sure mine did. I’m giving it a little bit of a modern spin and adding an extra layer of flavor with freshly sliced garlic, fresh sprigs of thyme and some really great quality olive oil to round it out. The cheese is sliced in a crosshatch pattern and then everything is tucked into the cheese and baked until it’s bubbling perfection.

I like to serve my Baked Camembert with crostini or garlic bread. Same thing if you ask me, and any kind of bread that is buttered and toasted to perfection is exactly what we want for this dish. It’s equal parts fancy and approachable and it’s going to make holiday entertaining super fun!

Here’s a quick video on how to make it if you need a visual! xx

  2. I saw you make this on snapchat and fell in love! Love the garlic slices and how it infuses the cheese. Seriously making this ASAP!

  3. Do I put the lid of the wooden box back on during the cooking process? or do I leave the box open?
