If you love baked camembert....wait for this twist. If you've ever seen hasselback potatoes....this is the bread and cheese version of it. Get the kids to bed early and have this with a glass of wine.
Now, when this was originally put up, I had a few comments about why is it an adults only recipe? Well, some things need to be sacred. My Camembert is sacred. I don't share it with my kiddies. Actually, I do, but they don't really need it. And they certainly wouldn't appreciate it cooked as much as I do.
The best thing about this? You don't need any utensils to eat it. It's the until on the couch food. It's complete with it's own dipping bread!
This recipe came about from: 2 left over bread rolls and a about to expire Camembert. But you can make it to suit as many people as you need. Trust me...once your friends have eaten this they will think you are the most amazing chef on earth!
