Thyme Baked Camembert with Quince Onion Jam

Hot and oozy camembert paired with a fruity onion jam.

Serves: 4-6
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 onions, finely sliced
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 100g quince paste
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • fresh thyme
  • 200g wheel camembert
  • crusty bread, for serving

Heat oil and sauté onions and salt over low heat for 15 minutes until soft and caramelized. Stir in quince paste until melted. Add vinegar and 1 teaspoon chopped thyme. Spoon into a small round ovenproof serving dish. Place the Camembert in the centre of the jam, top with sprigs of thyme and bake at 180°C for 10 minutes until camembert has softened and warmed through. Serve immediately with crusty bread.


To make a Fig and Pear Jam – substitute grated pears for the onion and fig paste for the quince paste.

Brie can also be used in place of Camembert.
