How To Make Baked Camembert In Air Fryer

Making Baked Camembert in an air fryer is a simple and elegant appetizer or snack. Here’s how to do it:

How To Cook Camembert In Air Fryer

Step One: Prepare The Camembert Cheese

  • Preheat the Air Fryer: Preheat your air fryer to 350 degrees F (175°C).
  • Prepare the Camembert: Remove any plastic packaging or wooden box from the cheese wheel and place it in a small oven-safe dish or a Camembert baker if you have one.
  • Score the Cheese: Using a sharp knife, gently score the top of the cheese in a crisscross pattern. This helps the cheese melt evenly.
  • Drizzle with Olive Oil: Drizzle a small amount of olive oil over the top of the camembert cheese.  This will add flavor and help create a golden crust.
  • Add Herbs (Optional): Sprinkle fresh herbs like rosemary or fresh thyme over the cheese for added aroma and flavor.

Cooking Time: Air fry the Camembert at 350°F (175°C) for approximately 10-12 minutes, or until the cheese is gooey and the top is golden brown. Cooking times may vary depending on your air fryer model, so keep an eye on it.

Pro Tips

Professional tips can elevate your dish from good to extraordinary when preparing Camembert in an air fryer. Here are some pro tips to ensure your Air Fryer Camembert turns out perfectly every time:

  • Score the Cheese: Before cooking, lightly score the top of the Camembert in a crosshatch pattern. This helps the cheese absorb any added flavors from toppings like garlic or herbs and makes it easier for the cheese to expand and become gooey without bursting.
  • Use Parchment Paper: Place a piece of parchment paper under the Camembert in the air fryer basket. This prevents the cheese from sticking to the basket and makes cleanup easier. Ensure the parchment paper is cut to size to avoid blocking airflow.
  • Preheat Your Air Fryer: For the best results, preheat your air fryer for a few minutes before adding the cheese. A preheated air fryer ensures even cooking and helps achieve that desirable gooey center with a slightly crisp top.
  • Keep the Rind On The rind of Camembert is edible and helps contain the cheese as it melts, creating a natural ‘bowl’ for the gooey cheese. Just make sure to score the top to allow heat to penetrate.
  • Don’t Overcook: Keep a close eye on the cooking time. Overcooking Camembert can lead to the cheese becoming too runny or even separating. Aim for that sweet spot where the cheese is melted and gooey inside.
  • Add Toppings at the Right Time: If you’re adding ingredients that could overcook or burn (like nuts or delicate herbs), consider adding them halfway through cooking or after removing the cheese from the air fryer.
  • Let It Rest: Allow the Camembert to rest for a minute or two after cooking. This helps stabilize the cheese, making it easier to transfer to a serving plate without spilling the melted interior.
  • Experiment with Flavors: Don’t be afraid to try different toppings and flavor combinations. Honey, nuts, spices, and fresh herbs can all add exciting dimensions to your dish.
  • Pairings Matter: Think about what you’ll serve with your Camembert. Crusty bread, apple slices, and pear are classic pairings, but also consider less traditional options like sweet potato chips or vegetable crudités for dipping.
  • Monitor Air Fryer Performance: All air fryers are a bit different. If this is your first time making Camembert in your air fryer, start with the lower end of the recommended cooking time and adjust based on how your appliance cooks.

By following these professional tips, you’ll be well on your way to serving a perfectly cooked Air Fryer Camembert that will impress your guests or make your snack time a bit more luxurious.

Can I cook Camembert in its wooden box in the air fryer?
It’s generally not recommended to put the wooden box in the air fryer due to the fire risk. Instead, place the cheese directly in the air fryer on parchment paper or in a small, air-fryer-safe dish.

How do I know when the Camembert is done?
The Camembert is done when it’s visibly softened, and the top is slightly golden. The cooking time can vary depending on the size of the cheese and your air fryer model, usually around 10-15 minutes.

Can I air fry Camembert without toppings?
Absolutely! Air frying Camembert without toppings allows you to enjoy the pure, creamy flavor of the cheese. You can always add toppings after cooking if desired.

What if my Camembert bursts during cooking?
Bursting can happen if the cheese is overcooked. To prevent this, keep a close eye on the cooking time and consider lowering the temperature if the cheese starts to crack open.

How do I store leftover Air Fryer Camembert?
 Leftover Camembert should be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container and is best enjoyed within 2-3 days. Reheat gently in the microwave or oven to restore some gooey texture.

Can I use any type of Camembert cheese?
Yes, any quality Camembert cheese will work for this recipe. However, the size of the cheese may affect the cooking time, so adjust accordingly.
