Pan-Fried Camembert Melt
One of the most luxurious sandwich recipes around, the pan-friend camembert melt may contain 595 calories but it is ideal as a quick fix winter warmer so go on and treat yourself with this yummy festive concoction!
You’re going to want to start by collecting all your ingredients. For the pan-friend camembert melt you’re going to need two thick slices of bread (white or brown, up to you), cranberry sauce, balsamic vinegar, butter and of course, a wedge of camembert cheese (approximately 85g/3oz).
Tip: If you can’t find any camembert, then substitute it for brie. It’ll work just as well!
With all these ingredients ready, let’s get started!
First, butter one side of two pieces of bread. Place the wedge of camembert or brie on the unbuttered side of just one piece. (The butter helps it not stick in the pan later on.)
Get your cranberry sauce and scoop a dollop (about a spoonful or however much you want) on top of the wedge. If you want, you can then drizzle balsamic vinegar over the top but it’s not vital to the recipe!
Sit the other slice of bread on top with the buttered side facing outwards – place in a hot non-stick pan on a medium to high heat.
Press down with a spatula or fish slice for about 1-3 minutes on each side (depending on how toasted you want it). Ideally the bread should be golden brown, the cheese melting and the smell….delicious!
Remove from the pan, slice in half and enjoy.
