Ingredients

  • 1 x 400g artisan sourdough boule
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 150g onion chutney
  • 1 x 250g Camembert
  • 3 rosemary sprigs, plus extra to garnish
  • 1 tbsp bourbon or whisky
  • 100g bacon lardons
  • 1 tbsp dark brown sugar

Step by step

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas 6. Cut the top off the boule and remove a deep round of bread from the middle to hold the cheese. Cut this bread and the lid into chunky pieces, drizzle with 1 tablespoon of oil and bake on a tray in the oven for 15 minutes, or until golden and crisp.
  2. Spread the onion chutney inside the hollowed-out bread. Unwrap the Camembert and thinly slice the top rind off the cheese, then cut a few slashes into the cheese. Place in the middle of the boule and transfer to a baking tray. Add 2 sprigs of rosemary and pour over the bourbon. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the cheese is oozy.
  3. Meanwhile, chop the remaining rosemary. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a frying pan and cook the bacon for 4-5 minutes until golden and starting to crisp. Add the chopped rosemary and brown sugar and cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes, until sticky.
  4. When the cheese is ready, top with the bacon, garnish with extra rosemary and serve with the baked croutons on the side for dipping.
