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 ever. 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! That comes in the form of 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 bubby perfection.

I like to serve my Baked Camembert with crostini or garlic bread. But any kind of bread that is buttered and toasted to perfection is exactly what we need 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

    Do you actually put the wooden box into the oven? won’t that start a fire (excuse my ignorance)

    Hi Gaby,

    Thank you for this lovely recipe. I cooked the baby Brussels Sprouts two days in a row as it was a huge hit and it demanded an encore.

    I used fresh ground Chili Peppers instead of the flakes as my audience prefers a slightly more mild chili flavoring.

    The lemon juice at the end adds just the right bit of zing to round out the flavor.

    Keep ‘em coming…
