Deep Fried Camembert with Raspberry Sauce Recipe
- 4 ounces Camembert cheese
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup fine bread crumbs
- 3/4 cup sesame seeds
- 3 cups vegetable oil for frying
- 2/3 cup raspberry preserves
step 1: Cut chilled cheese in 6 equal wedges. In a shallow bowl, beat egg. On a sheet of wax paper, mix bread crumbs and sesame seeds.
step 2: Dip each cheese wedge in egg and turn to coat. Roll cheese in crumb mixture to coat. (If preparing ahead, cover and refrigerate now until ready to cook.)
step 3: In a heavy saucepan, heat about 2 inches of oil to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) or until a 1-inch bread cube turns golden brown on all sides. Fry cheese until golden. Drain on paper towels.
step 4: Melt raspberry preserves for dipping sauce.
