Cheese, nuts, and prosciutto find perfect harmony as Camembert Snacks

Camembert comes from the village of the same name in Normandy, France, and as the story goes, it was first created by a farmer in 1791. It's a soft cheese with a very unique flavor and strong smell, and can be eaten just as it is or baked in the oven. But we've decided to take things a step further and create something with this gooey delicacy that combines some other interesting flavors into a snack you won't soon forget...

You'll need:

  • one wheel of camembert
  • 1/2 cup hazelnuts, chopped
  • 8 strips of prosciutto
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • 3/4 cup bread crumbs

Here's how:

  1. Cut up the camembert into eight wedges.
  2. Press both sides of the cheese wedge into the chopped hazelnuts.
  3. Now wrap each wedge in a strip of prosciutto.
  4. Roll the wrapped wedges in flour, then in the egg, and finally in the bread crumbs. Fry them in a pan with oil until they're crispy and golden brown.

The farmer who created this amazing cheese probably never dreamed that someday we'd be doing this with it. Bon appétit!
