Serves: 2-4

This baked camembert with balsamic onion and garlic dipping bread is a sharing side that you’ll want to keep all to yourself. 


  • 1 red onion
  • 1 French Camembert
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 4 flatbreads
  • 6 tbsp of balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp water


1Preheat your oven to 200°C. Halve, peel and thinly slice the red onion.

2Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press) and remove the Camembert from it’s packaging.

3Pop the Camembert into a large square of kitchen foil. Bring the foil together at the top to make a little parcel.

4Place the Camembert parcel on a baking tray.

5Bake the camembert on the top shelf of your oven until the cheese has melted, 20 mins.

6Meanwhile, pop the garlic in a large bowl and add the olive oil (see ingredients for amount). Season with salt and pepper and mix together.

7Chop each flatbread into 6 triangles and add to the bowl with the garlicky oil. Toss together to coat.

8Pop the flatbreads on a large baking tray in a single layer. TIP: You may need 2 trays.

9Once the cheese has been cooking for 10 mins, pop the bread on the middle shelf of your oven to bake until golden, 6-8 mins.

10While everything cooks, heat a drizzle of oil in a frying pan on medium heat.

11Once the oil is hot, add the red onion and season with salt and pepper.

12Fry until really nicely softened, 7-8 mins. Add the balsamic vinegar, sugar and water, cook until the liquid has evaporated and the onions are sticky, 1-2 mins.

13Once the cheese is cooked, carefully place on a serving dish and open up the tin foil parcel.

14Pop the caramelised onion on top of the cheese and serve with the garlic bread alongside for scooping up the cheese. Enjoy!
