Cooking Tips

  • Deep fried camembert goes amazing with some cranberry sauce. Also, it goes well in a salad as well if you’re looking to have something a bit healthier with these gooey cheese bits.
  • It’s essential not to use olive oils in a deep fryer as these not only impart a lot of their flavor to the food they also have a low burning point.
  • Don’t drop the camembert into the deep fryer as this will cause a splash possibly burning yourself and also making your kitchen dirty. Simply place into the oil, and it should start cooking.
  • It is important to have the oil at the right temperature when using a deep fryer or even if you’re shallow frying. If you put it in when the oil is not hot enough, your food will absorb the oil and become a soggy and a not very enjoyable mess.
  • To change this fried camembert recipe up a bit, you can chopped herbs such as parsley or chives to the breadcrumb mix to help add a bit more flavor.
