Deep fried Camembert in less than 10 minutes

Sharing is caring!

I recently lost my wallet with my electronic residence permit, driver’s license and co. on my way from the supermarket. The next day I went to report my loss to the police. When I returned home, I wanted to cook something quick, but tasty. I found myself standing in front of the fridge wondering what to make for lunch. I then discovered 2 Camembert cheese in the fridge, that were expiring the next day. So it was about time that I got rid of them. It then occurred to me that I was going to make deep fried Camembert, because it only takes less than 10 min.You’ll love this dish, because it’s simple and uses just a few ingredients: Camembert cheese, breadcrumbs, eggs milk and sunflower oil. This dish can be eaten as a snack if you’re not too hungry or as a starter.

Throughout the pictured recipe steps below, I’d like to show you how to prepare deep fried Camembert, which is normally served with cranberry sauce and buttered toast bread/ homemade bread/ baguette/ ciabatta or green salad. In my opinion, cranberry sauce is a must, otherwise the flavor will be more intense.


Here’s how to make deep fried Camembert in less than 10 minutes.

Yield: 2 Servings 

Prep Time: 4 min

Cook Time: 5 min

You’ll need:

2 rounds Camembert cheese, approx. 150 g/ 5 oz each,

2 eggs

breadcrumbs

sunflower oil for frying

a dash of milk

cranberry sauce and 4 slices of toasted bread to serve

You’ll also need two bowls: Pour breadcrumbs into one bowl. Crack the eggs into another bowl, add a dash of milk and beat until blended.

Dip Camembert into the egg – milk mixture, coating all sides.

Then coat the cheese with the breadcrumbs.

Place the coated Camembert on an extra plate to shake off the excess breadcrumbs

NOTE: You don’t a need large amount of oil, but enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan.

Heat the oil in the pan at medium – high. Once the oil is hot enough, but not too hot, lower the heat to medium-low and fry Camembert (slowly) on both sides until nicely golden brown. If the oil is too hot, the crust will burn, before the cheese is done. Fry the remaining egg-milk mixture (if you like).

Remove from the pan and place the cheese on a plate lined with paper towels.

Then transfer to serving plates. I served it with toasted bread and Cranberry sauce.

Enjoy!
