Nutrition

DIRECTIONS

  • Dip the wedge of brie or camembert in milk and dredge in flour.
  • Then dip in egg and breadcrumbs.
  • Let cheese'sit' for 10-15 minutes to allow coating to set.
  • Melt butter in a large skillet.
  • When hot, add as many brie/camembert slices as will fit without crowding.
  • Fry until golden-brown, turn over carefully and fry on other side.
  • Put a handful of the lettuce chiffonade on each serving plate.
  • Centre a golden brie/camembert slice on the plate.
  • Top with a spoonful of fruit chutney or preserves (or serve the chutney on the side); Cranberry Sauce is WONDERFUL with this!
  • Serve immediately with plenty of crusty bread to spread the molten cheese on.
  • Enjoy!
