Total Time – under 20 minutes

Our Most Popular Alternative – Goats Cheese Salad

Equipment Needed

  • Air Fryer – we now use a Ninja Foodi Max Dual Zone Air Fryer – the 9.5 litre two drawer cooking space is BRILLIANT when you’re cooking for a family or like to cook larger portions. And it makes cooking meat, chicken or fish and potatoes or veggies at the same time super easy! Plus if you’re doing camembert in the Ninja air fryer you can cook two at once or warm the bread in one drawer as the cheese cooks in the other.
  • Tongs  just makes it easier to lift the cheese and onion toastie from the air fryer basket. I’d definitely recommend you get yourself a set of silicone tongs if you do lots of air frying. They just make it so much easier to remove or flip food. Plus they don’t scratch the air fryer non-stick coating.
  • Sharp knife

Ingredients For Air Fryer Baked Camembert

You’ll just need three ingredients to make the air fried camembert, plus your favourite cheese board bits and pieces to serve along side

  • Camembert Cheese Wheel – you can just pick up whole wheel of camembert at the supermarket
  • Hot Honey – we’re a bit obsessed with hot honey! Because it’s infused with chilies, it adds a lovely sweet kick of heat. It’s well worth keeping a bottle in at home. It’s delicious on cheese, pizzas, flatbreads, drizzled over roasted vegetables and more.
  • Garlic cloves – unpeeled

How To Make Baked Camembert In The Air Fryer

You’ll LOVE how simple it is to make air fryer camembert

Step One – prepare the camembert

  • Firstly, take the wheel of camembert out of the little wooden box, unwrap the plastic wrapper. Then put the cheese back into the bottom half of the box.
  • Take your sharp knife and score lines across the top of the cheese.

Step Two – add your toppings

  • Push the garlic cloves (unpeeled) into the cuts on top of the camembert rind. No need to be neat. This is rustic, easy food.

Cooks Note! If you’re adding any herbs like fresh rosemary or fresh thyme, push them into the cheese now. You can also sprinkle over some cracked black pepper and chili flakes, if you like.

  • Drizzle over the hot honey.

Step Three – bake the air fryer camembert

  • Place the camembert into a foil tray, or line the air fryer with aluminium foil. This just means cleaning up is much easier.

  • Place the camembert into the air fryer basket, then put into the air fryer. Cook at 180C for around 15 minutes.

Cooks Note! All air fryers cook at slightly different speeds and temperatures, so keep an eye on the baked camembert from around 12 minutes. Just so you can catch it when it’s perfectly delicious for your own taste.

What To Serve With Air Fryer Baked Camembert

We’ve popped our favourite things to eat with camembert below, but as always, feel free to add on anything you like!

Bread – just simply toasted slices of sourdough, rubbed with a clove of garlic, and drizzled with a splash of olive oil is a winner for us. But it’s always nice served with fresh crusty French baguette or some crackers.

Bowl of olives – olives are the perfect accompaniment to baked camembert.

Beetroot slices – what can I say? Beets and gooey, melted cheese are just a match made in heaven, dunk and dip your bread, spread with melted baked cheese and top with beetroot, you won’t regret it!

Vine tomatoes – there’s always room on a cheese board for baby vine tomatoes.

Nuts – camembert cheese goes great with walnuts and pecans.

Fruit – throw some fruit in the mix, bunches of juicy black grapes or sliced pears are delicious with camembert cheese.

Jams and syrups – sometimes I add some cranberry sauce, quince jam, or a pot of maple syrup for drizzling onto the oozy, gooey cheesy bread.
