Megan’s Parcel From Heaven

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.

Ingredients:

2 sheets ready made filo pastry

250g Camembert

2 slices of cooked chopped bacon

1 egg

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.

Camembert Parcel

Bon Apetit!

My name is James welcome to my blog. I am a 23 year old self taught kitchen loiterer where i am most happiest. I was diagnosed with terminal HCC Liver Cancer October 2012 since then i have found much more time to experiment in the kitchen and develop my knowledge. Making cookery my number one release and hobby. On a lighter note, I have been in love with food since when I couldn't possibly remember, the story of me in my youth asking Father Christmas for cucumber sandwiches doesn't surprise anyone in the slightest. I enjoy cooking, eating out, entertaining, putting smiles on peoples faces when they take their first mouthful of my dish/force feeding them and talking about food, generally basing life around the next meal. I tend to get on tremendously well immediately with anyone who has a passion for food and life in general. In my blog i will add new tried and tested restaurants, recipes and much more. Aimed at anyone even if they have hardly ever picked up a skillet. I believe great things can be achieved using minimal ingredients, hence why my favourite food to cook and eat is Italian. Hoping to meet other food enthusiast bloggers and share my recipes with fellow foodies. Every little helps when it comes to cooking and choosing between a vast amount of eateries. Let's avoid the mediocre ones and promote the unpretentious hidden gems where the true greatness lies. I hope you find this page useful and any feedback would be fantastic. Enjoy! And of course, Bon Apetit!

  1. This is amazing James! I had to try this due to the name, obviously, & it certainly didn’t disappoint, thank you x

    1. This looks lovely: I like a bit of gooey cheese. Do you think it will work OK without the bacon though? Will have to give it a try and see.

      1. Absolutely or replace with something more to your particular fancy with a salty kick for example prosciutto ham or a cured smoked meat. Go for it and tweak on another occasion if needed, that’s the great thing about quick simple recipes.
