Emile Henry Baked Cheese Recipes
Emile Henry Cheese Baker is ideal for preparing cheese to be served hot – melted brie-based appetizers, mini-fondue or French ‘raclette’ style dinner.
Whether it is brie, mozzarella or goat cheese; simply place the cheese in the baker, add sweet or savory garnish, close the lid and put in the oven. Once baked, serve directly in the baker.
With a guaranteed ’Wow’ effect, the cheese—warm throughout and decadently creamy—is ready to spread on toasts or crackers, or pour over steamed veggies and cured meat. Or simply serve as a dip with our homemade crostini, toasted baguette, pita chips and more.
Below find four of Emile Henry’s favorite baked cheese recipes.
