Crispy Prosciutto and Caramelized Onion Baked Camembert

Total Time:

1hrs 20mins

Prep:

15mins

Cook:

1hrs 5mins

Ingredients

  • 1 Camembert wheel
  • 6 prosciutto slices
  • 1 lbs. onions, sliced
  • ½ cup Lindeman Bin 50 Shiraz
  • 1 sprig thyme
  • 4 - 5 sheets phyllo pastry approximate 8”x12”, defrosted
  • 2 Tbsp. + 2 Tbsp. butter, melted
  • salt & pepper

How to Make It

1.

Preheat oven to 375°F.

2.

Place prosciutto on a parchment lined sheet pan and bake in oven until crispy (approx 8-10 minutes).

3.

Remove from oven and let cool.

4.

While prosciutto is baking, place 2 tbsp of butter, thyme and onions into a large pot over medium-high heat.

5.

Season with salt and pepper.

6.

Cook to caramelize the onions.

7.

Once you have developed a good color, deglaze with ¼ cup of shiraz and continue to keep cooking to develop a deeper caramelization.

8.

Deglaze with the remaining ¼ cup of shiraz and cook until almost gone.

9.

Remove from the heat and let cool. About 20 minutes.

10.

Cut the camembert horizontally in half.

11.

Remove the top and place the caramelized onions on to the bottom half of the camembert.

12.

Add the crispy prosciutto and then place the top back on.

13.

Place one sheet of phyllo pastry onto a parchment lined sheet pan.

14.

Brush the phyllo with butter, then add the next sheet.

15.

Repeat this until you have 4 complete layers. You can “patch” the phyllo with the extra sheet if needed.

16.

Put the camembert onto the phyllo and wrap the edges up to the top of the cheese like a present.

17.

Carefully flip the camembert so the seams are now on the bottom of the cheese package.

18.

Place in the oven and bake for 25-35 minutes until golden brown.
