French people are certainly very good at making baked goods.
Many are people are very fond of fig and camembert cheese bread and even mine. I personally love the classic mix of creamy, pungent cheese mixed with sweet and fruity fig preserve. But also love in addition caramelized onions and a few nuts for extra volume and crunchiness.
The colors alone are tempting and the flavors will take anyone who’s been to France and it cafes abound.
This cheese bread makes a beautiful snack to serve when cut into sticks. It can also be served as part of a meal with a simple salad, next to a pot-au-feu or paired with a classic French frisee salad.
Cheese Bread with Fig and Onion Jam
Prep time: 7 mins
Cook time: 13 mins
Total time: 20 mins
- 1 medium onion, very finely sliced
- 8 slices sour dough bread, cut about 1½ inch thick
- 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tsps nuts, chopped
- fig jam
- good quality camembert cheese
- salt and pepper
- Place a large pan over medium heat then add oil and onion.
- Cook for about 15 minutes, until onions turn golden brown, soft and juicy.
- Lightly toast your bread in a toaster with the lowest setting or in a oven. The bread should be little crispy.
- Lay a sheet of tin foil in a tray and add bread slices.
- Layer the onions to cover the bread surface with a spoon.
- Add about two to three pieces of camembert cheese on top, centered. When the cheese melts, it will expand.

- Broil in the oven for 4 minutes.
- Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
So I think while the write up itself gives a feel how yummy this recipe would appear. So try at home this weekend. Why weekend? Well in a relaxing mood you can do experiments with new recipes or old ones in a new style. If during a try something goes wrong, you can always have time and mood to renew the process or try something different. I often perform experiments on Fridays and Saturdays.
