This was a great dip with soft Bavarian-style pretzels! I did use dried minced onion (1 1/2 Tbs for a half batch) and might scale back just a little next time for a little less oniony aftertaste. I also used an Oktoberfest and would use that beer again. Thanks for a keeper!
After trying Obatzda at Zeppelin Hall in Jersey City and loving it, I decided to make my own pretzels and this dip. I was very concerned that it wouldn't turn out close (ZH's version is absolutely addictive!) I was thrilled to taste that Nif's recipe was even better. Creamy, delicious, packed with flavor, this is a winner
I love camembert and I love beer, so what's not to like about this recipe? I made this rich, tasty cheese spread to take to a BBQ yesterday. We enjoyed it. I would say I ended up using 1 tsp of paprika and 1 tsp of caraway, which seemed about right to us. As prepared by me yesterday, I would give this about 4.5 stars. Comments included that the consistency was a little too soupy and that I used gluten-free beer because one of the guests has Celiac's. However, these issues are easily remedied. Next time, I won't whip it with my hand mixer, just a spoon, and because the beer taste is pretty pronounced, I will use a flavorful wheat beer. My friend with Celiac's actually said she would prefer to skip the appy and take comfort in the fact I used real beer than to eat something with the gluten-free beer. Who knew? Ha! Ha! Thanks for posting. Made for ZWT6.
Made for ZWT6 & our Tues appy nite, I gotta tell ya Nif that ~ Just about the time I am sure I have tasted the best ZWT6 has to offer, along comes an easy recipe like this to knock my socks off! This is cream-rich, full of the yummy Camembert flavor & all the parts of the whole make it spec. I did use red onion to add color, but otherwise made a half recipe as written since there is just 2 of us. I am happily looking forward to the leftovers for my lunch today. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-)
