Here is a quick winter warming recipe from a friend that I had to post, seeing as it is winter and we need good fast fuss free winter warming food. One of our nation favourites to share lately is dipping bread in a soft gooey cheese and accompanied by an onion sweet and savoury relish, a comforting treat for those frosty winter evenings.
Here is an ever so slight twist and a simple recipe to make your own oozing parcel.
2 sheets ready made filo pastry
2 slices of cooked chopped bacon
2tbsp onion relish
Pinch of basil leaves roughly chopped
Method: 1) Lay out two sheets of filo pastry and lay Camembert on pastry. 2) Place the Basil, Bacon and Onion chutney on top of Camembert. 3) Gently wrap pastry around the cambert gently tucking in as you wrap. 4) Brush the pastry all over with mixed up egg wash for a nice golden shine. 5) Bake in the oven on gas mark 5 for 20 minutes and serve with a crusty baguette to dip.
The pastry will remain crispy but soften slightly inside as the cheese melts making an irresistible Moreish snack.
