time of the year
this is the beginning of the party season and every once in a while,you might get asked to bring something. sometimes "we" even ask if we could bring a "goodie". i recently found a recipe for what i believe is a very good goodie. it's a twist on the proverbial baked brie. i would even mix up the herbs more than the recipe....but i never do follow one of those recipe-things!
baked cheese with herbs
1 pound wheel of semisoft cheese, such as gubbeen, port salut or reblochen
1 tablespoon minced mixed herbs (thyme, rosemary, dill, chives, oregano - any of these combined)
2 cloves garlic, minced
fresh ground black pepper to tastcrusty bread for serving
1. preheat oven to 325 degrees. cut the wheel of cheese in half horizontally to make 2 rounds. sprinkle the herbs, garlic and pepper on the bottom half of the cheese. replace the top disk of cheese and place the wheel on a large piece of aluminum foil. wrap the foil around the cheese, forming a chimney hole on top with the excess foil, which will let out moisture as the cheese bakes.
2. place cheese on the baking sheet and bake until the cheese is soft and runny, about 20 minutes. serve with chunks of good bread while cheese is still warm.
