The gourmet world has been blessed by TikTok’s passion for baked cheese time and time again with scrumptious new hacks and recipes that invariably go viral, and this most recent one is no exception. This new camembert recipe, which puts a spin on the baked feta we’re all familiar with, is sure to throw cheese aficionados into a frenzy.
It’s safe to say that @goodfoodvibes, a TikTok user, has won over her followers with the new Pesto Baked Camembert.
The video, which you can see above, has received over seven million views and demonstrates exactly how to cook this dish, which has gone viral. If you’re looking for a dish to dazzle guests, this is it.
A piece of camembert is first placed atop some rolled-out circular dough.
If you’re pressed for time, utilizing pre-made puff pastry that you can purchase in advance will expedite the process.
Once the dough is set up, you spread some green pesto over it, being careful not to get any on the camembert in the center.
Then you cover the layer of pesto with some grated mozzarella.
Once your base is all covered, top the camembert and pesto with another sheet of puff pastry, and use a fork to bind the edges.
After creating pastry pieces by cutting around the camembert and twisting them, you brush the camembert with egg whites, top it with sesame seeds, and bake it.
When the pastry is baked, you slice it off at the top to reveal the melted camembert, which makes the ideal dipping sauce for the freshly made pesto pastry pieces.
The dish has only six ingredients and is rated as having “easy difficulty.” The complete recipe is provided below.
1 camembert (round)
3 tbsp green pesto
1 handful mozzarella (grated)
1 sheet puff pastry
1 tsp sesame seeds
