Ingredients Nutrition

  • generous wedge brie cheese (sometimes, I buy those very small rounds of brie or camembert and serve one or half per person) or camembert cheese, for each person you're planning to serve (sometimes, I buy those very small rounds of brie or camembert and serve one or half per person)
  • milk
  • flour
  • 1 egg (or 2 or 3 - again depending on how many people you're serving this to)
  • plain breadcrumbs
  • butter
  • lettuce leaf, chiffonade (lettuce cut in thin, strips to make an attractive plating)
  • fruit chutney or preserves
  • crusty bread

Directions

  1. Dip the wedge of brie or camembert in milk and dredge in flour.
  2. Then dip in egg and breadcrumbs.
  3. Let cheese'sit' for 10-15 minutes to allow coating to set.
  4. Melt butter in a large skillet.
  5. When hot, add as many brie/camembert slices as will fit without crowding.
  6. Fry until golden-brown, turn over carefully and fry on other side.
  7. Put a handful of the lettuce chiffonade on each serving plate.
  8. Centre a golden brie/camembert slice on the plate.
  9. Top with a spoonful of fruit chutney or preserves (or serve the chutney on the side); Cranberry Sauce is WONDERFUL with this!
  10. Serve immediately with plenty of crusty bread to spread the molten cheese on.
  11. Enjoy!
