Camembert and Cranberry Toasts

Do you want a tasty canapé that you can make in 15 minutes using items which at Christmas you probably have tucked away in your fridge? If so this is a great little canapé to use especially if you are having people over for New Year and have some good quality cheese left over from Christmas.

For bread I used the part baked rolls that you can buy which are easy to slice, about the right size and toast well. They can also be stored for a little while so are a useful store cupboard ingredient.

Serves: 16+ canapé or 4 as an appetiser

Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe camembert cheese
  • 1 jar cranberry sauce
  • 200g baguette, ciabatta or sourdough bread.
  • Olive oil

Method

Preheat the oven to 160C

Slice the bread in to canapé size portions.

Lightly brush the bread on one side with oil.

Cook in the oven for roughly 5 minutes until golden. Meanwhile portion your camembert in to the number of slices of bread you have.

Remove toast from oven and top with a slice of camembert. Return to oven for a further 1-2 minutes to warm the camembert through but not melt it.

Remove from oven, top with half a tsp cranberry sauce. Serve immediately.

    This is fabulous. Sometimes I like a more chutney-type pairing with Camembert or Brie, but it depends how sweet the cranberry sauce is, of course. Fabulously festive!

      Cranberry sauce doesn’t tend to be very sweet over here. I used a wild cranberry sauce from one of our very famous old traditional jam makers which is lovely.
