Hello December, hello holiday gatherings and hello tables full of delicious food! With all the busyness this time of year brings, it’s nice to have a few easy, tasty recipes on hand for holiday gatherings you might be hosting or attending. This gooey, melty cheesy appetizer is quick to throw together, and adds a nice festive touch to a food table! And it’s sooo good, because it’s ooey, gooey melty cheese, in case you missed that! This would definitely work with brie cheese if you’d rather use that. And of course, you don’t have to bake it/serve it in the wooden box, I just thought it was a nice touch. But you definitely should be making, serving, and eating this! 😉Pomegranate & Thyme Baked Camembert
1 whole Camembert, in it’s box
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Remove paper from cheese, slice the top layer of rind off the cheese, and place back in box. Place cheese on a baking sheet (I recommend lining sheet with foil, the cheese will probably leak some). Sprinkle cheese with thyme leaves. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until cheese is gooey & melty. Remove from oven, transfer to serving platter and top with pomegranate seeds. Serve immediately with bread or crackers.
*You’ll need more thyme & pomegranate seeds on your camembert than what I have pictured (I added more when we ate it!). Either pile it on, or if you like the look of it with less, just have more pomegranate seeds & thyme on the side to add to individual servings.We love our appetizers around here – so if you’re looking for some ideas for your next gathering, you can find some inspiration here!
