Recipe: Baked Coeur de Neufchâtel & Best Baking Cheeses

At this time of year we certainly get the most use out of our ceramic Camembert Baker. It suits a variety of cheeses and dishes and is so satisfyingly simple to pop in the oven and take it straight to the table to serve.

For this recipe, we've selected the heart-shaped Coeur de Neufchâtel. A classic baked cheese, with a little extra love.

It takes less than 20 minutes from preparation, to eating - a quick and comforting dish that is perfect for lunchtime on a gloomy day, or for a quick evening supper.

Top 5 Cheeses for Oven Baking 

There are plenty of Winter weekends coming up to enjoy the use of your Camembert baker. Here are five more cheese recommendations for quick & satisfying baked cheese suppers.

1. Paxton & Whitfield Camembert de Normandie: The classic oven-baked cheese! Try topping with our Spiced Plum Chutney for a really festive flavour - a delicious dish to enjoy on Christmas Eve. 

2. Celtic Soft: A slightly smaller cheese if you're looking for a lighter dish for two people. Also delicious paired with one of our fruity flavoured confits. 

3. Mont d'Or: The ultimate, luxury cheese for baking. You can find our baked Mont d'Or recipe here

4. Tunworth: This artisan British cheese is frequently baked by many of the top chefs that we supply. Try it for yourself at home. 

5. Baronet: Try leaving the lid off the baker and turn up the heat to 200°C (180°C fan oven) for this award-winning British washed rind cheese. It has a more intense flavour than our other recommendations and the rind will crispen if baked with the lid off.
