    Having tried something similar in a restaurant I was inspired to create this tasty recipe for deep fried Camembert.

    Launa Northern Territory, Australia

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 1 cups plain flour
    • 2 eggs, whisked
    • 2 cups breadcrumbs
    • 1 camembert wheel
    • oil for frying

    Directions
    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Extra time:30min chilling  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. Create a crumbing station with three shallow bowls with the flour, eggs and breadcrumbs each in their own separate bowl.
    2. Cut the Camembert into 8 wedges. Take each wedge and dust with flour, dip in the egg then roll in crumbs. Place on a plate not touching any of the other wedges. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.
    3. Put all the wedges through the egg and crumbing bowls a second time then return to the fridge for 10 minutes.
    4. Put all the wedges through the egg and crumbing bowls a third time then return to the fridge for 10 minutes. Three layers of crumbs is required to stop the cheese escaping the crumb crust when it melts in the deep fryer.
    5. Heat a deep fryer to 180 degrees C. Add half the wedges cook until golden brown, then cook the other half. If the oil is too hot the crumb will brown without melting the cheese, adjust the temperature if required.

    Great! I sprinkled sesame seeds on after the third layer of egg but before the third layer of crumb. Perfect! - 05 May 2016
