Pan Fried Camembert Sandwich With Tomato Chutney

Tues, 8th Sep 2015

What is better than a toasted cheese sandwich? Well possibly this toasted cheese sandwich- melted Camembert mixed with my spicy tomato chutney, melted butter and a pinch of rosemary. This is a wonderful indulgence and one of my favourite comfort foods. Make sure the bread you use is good quality; a sourdough works well as it has structure but a good pullman loaf would also work. Be careful the bread is not sliced too thick or your cheese won’t melt. Eat immediately!

  • 2 slices sourdough
  • Few slices Camembert (or your favourite cheese)
  • 1 tbsp Considered tomato, chilli and balsamic vinegar chutney
  • Knob butter
  • Few sprigs rosemary

  1. 1. Butter the bread and place the rosemary sprigs on the butter. Place one slice in a pan, butter side down on a low heat.
  2. 2. Place the Camembert slices on top and cover the bread completely, and spoon over the chutney.
  3. 3. Place the second slice of bread on top (butter side up) and fry on both sides until golden brown. (Keep the heat low-medium so the cheese melts before the bread burns.)
  4. 4. Slice diagonally and serve. Enjoy!
