We had a neighborhood cookout the other night. Since I started weight watchers, I have been limiting myself on my cheese intake. But cheese is my very favorite. So when I found a similar recipe for grilled camembert in my Cooking Light magazine, I decided that this was my opportunity. I would get to try the cheese out, but share as well!
This was fantastic. I will definitely make it again. If you don’t have brandied cherries available (we made ours), you can just use pitted cherries instead with the rosemary, salt & pepper and heat the mixture so it becomes softer. Enjoy!
Grilled Camembert with Brandy Cherry topping
1/2 cup brandied cherries
2 tbsp cherry jam
2 tsp rosemary
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 wheel camembert (8oz)
Combine cherries through pepper and let sit to meld together for about 1 hour.
Spray camembert with cooking spray and cook, covered, for about 5 minutes or until rind is soft. Flip onto a serving dish and cover with cherry mixture. Serve with crackers.
