Make your daily meals extra cheesy with these Camembert cheese recipes!
Camembert might be a little tricky to pronounce, but it’s very easy to enjoy.
This soft, creamy cheese is always a great addition to any savory dish.
Its subtly salty and earthy flavors make it fantastic even on its own.
Simply pop a whole wheel of Camembert in the oven for a scrumptious dip.
Because it has a mild flavor, it also pairs beautifully with sweet ingredients such as honey and berries.
If you like the sweet and savory combo, you can count on Camembert.
It melts wonderfully too, which means it’s perfect for grilled cheese, pizzas, and pasta dishes.
If there’s anything we learned here, it’s that Camembert is highly versatile!
Learn how to cook with this magnificent cheese with this selection of recipes.
1. Baked Camembert
Baked Camembert is a fancy appetizer often served at high-end restaurants. But that doesn’t mean you can’t make it at home!
In fact, it’s so easy all you’ll need is 20 minutes.
Just top the cheese with rosemary sprigs, red chili flakes, sea salt, and honey. Then, into the oven, it goes.
The combination of sweet, salty, creamy, and spicy is absolute perfection.
You can take it up a notch by topping it with fruit jam and nuts. But it’s already pretty sensational as is.
Serve this gooey dip with toasted baguette, crackers, or crostini, or pair it with red or white wine.
2. Cheese Fondue
This cheese fondue is a heavenly combination of melted gruyere, Vacherin Fribourgeois, and Camembert.
Gruyere has a strong flavor a lot similar to cheddar. Vacherin Fribourgeois is a mild cow’s cheese that adds creaminess to the fondue.
Lastly, Camembert, with its great melting potential, ties the cheese together to create the perfect gooey fondue.
When it comes to dippers, the sky’s the limit!
You can go the traditional route with bread, potatoes, and pickles. Or, for a sweet and salty treat, dip slices of apples and pears.
3. Mushroom and Camembert Frittata
Having friends over for a lazy weekend brunch? This frittata is sure to please.
Loaded with tomatoes, basil, mushrooms, and Camembert, this dish is like a frittata and Caprese salad rolled in one.
Also infused with thyme and garlic, it bursts with wonderfully earthy and pungent flavors.
This frittata is on the rich side, so consider pairing it with something light and refreshing, like a salad or fruit bowl.
4. Obatzda (Camembert Spread)
Don’t let its foreign name intimidate you.
Obatzda is an easy cheese spread from Bavaria, Germany you can make in your home in just 5 minutes.
It’s a combo of cream cheese, Camembert, chives, sweet paprika, caraway seeds, and beer.
It’s a creamy, cheesy, and chunky spread. It pairs well with any dipper you can imagine.
Traditional Obatzda uses full-fat cream cheese and Camembert, but this recipe uses non-fat for a lighter spread.
5. Smoked Chicken, Spinach and Camembert Pizza
Flour tortillas are smeared with a rich marinara sauce and loaded with smoked chicken, spinach, mozzarella, and Camembert.
The flavors from the sweet sauce, smoky chicken, and rich cheeses make this pizza a certified crowd-pleaser.
And because it has spinach leaves on it, it’s considered healthy. Right? Delicious and nutritious, this pizza is the best of both worlds.
6. Crispy Deep-Fried Camembert
These morsels of deep-fried Camembert are beyond glorious.
Basically, they’re chunks of Camembert battered with breadcrumbs and deep-fried in oil.
They’re crispy on the outside and ooey-gooey on the inside. They’re the ultimate snack or party appetizer!
A word of warning, though, this stuff is dangerously addictive.
Try topping it with some cranberry sauce, as they make an outstanding pair.
I imagine dipping them in marinara will also make a fantastic combo.
7. Baked Camembert with Honey and Apple
Here’s a sweet and salty treat your tastebuds will absolutely go crazy over.
First of all, props to that gorgeous presentation! Served this way, it makes for a fancy appetizer perfect for a romantic date or fancy party.
It couldn’t be easier to make. Just top the cheese with honey, garlic, thyme, and rosemary, and pop it into the oven.
Ten minutes later, you have a warm and ooey-gooey dip great with crusty bread, crackers, apples, and pears.
8. Camembert Apple Dutch Baby with Fig Jam
Take the simple Dutch baby to a whole new level of awesomeness. Some Camembert and fig jam are all you need.
Fill that baby with cheese, apples, and onions, and finish it off with fig jam and arugula.
The fillings and toppings create a sweet, creamy, and savory combo that’s impossible to resist.
9. Honey Baked Camembert
Here’s another sweet and salty baked Camembert perfect for parties and romantic dinners.
It’s a wheel of Camembert drizzled with honey and sprinkled with thyme and red pepper flakes on top.
You can either bake it for 15 minutes or just pop it in the microwave for 2. The Camembert will taste heavenly whichever method you choose.
It’s phenomenal as it is, but garnish it with crunchy pecans for some crunch.
10. Ultimate Christmas Venison & Camembert Burger
Want to spread some major holiday cheers? This venison and Camembert burger is the way to go.
Loaded with a juicy venison patty, melty Camembert, balsamic onions, and cranberry sauce, this burger is the ultimate holiday treat.
It’s so scrumptious, I’ll bet Santa would much prefer it over a plate of cookies.
11. Camembert and Gruyere Grilled Cheese
There’s nothing wrong with classic grilled cheese at all. But if you want to increase its crave-ability, I highly suggest you use this recipe.
Gruyere and Camembert make the perfect cheese combination.
The saltiness of the Gruyere plus the creaminess of the Camembert give the sandwich the most tremendous tastes and textures.
12. Creamy Skillet Mac and Cheese
Elevate the traditional skillet mac and cheese with Camembert!
Here, the pasta shells are tossed with an immaculate sauce made of cheddar, brie, and Camembert. Talk about a level-up, am I right?
The combination of cheeses and mustard makes the creamiest sauce with salty and slightly tart flavors.
13. Camembert-Stuffed Sausage Balls
Bite-sized spheres of ground Italian sausage meat burst with melty Camembert. Think classic meatballs, but given a significant upgrade.
The oozy cheese in the middle makes these sausage balls undeniably delectable.
But I’d like to give a shout-out to the meatballs themselves, too. They’re mixed with milk, eggs, and panko breadcrumbs.
So they’re super tender and juicy with a nice crunch on the outside.
14. Camembert Snowflake
Time to take your appetizer gaming to the next level with this surprisingly easy Camembert snowflake.
The name is pretty self-explanatory since the whole thing looks like a giant snowflake.
But what is it, exactly?
It’s a bunch of twirled puff pastries filled with bacon and cranberry sauce.
The center of the pastry dough is then cut out and filled with a wheel of Camembert.
The cheese is topped with rosemary for a nice, earthy flavor.
The whole thing gets baked in the oven, resulting in a sweet and savory pastry with a melty dip in the center.
15. Pasta With Baked Camembert
Last on our list is a hearty pasta dish with parmesan and melty Camembert for its sauce.
Its flavor is a lot similar to mac and cheese, but ten times tastier.
The sauce is rich, but its flavor is wonderfully balanced out by spinach leaves.
Garlic and recipe are also added to the sauce to complement its flavor.
