Le Rustique Camembert, Fig and Basil Sourdough Toastie

Le Rustique Camembert, Fig and Basil Sourdough Toastie

This scrumptious toasted Le Rustique Camembert sandwich makes a great comforting supper for two. The dish uses mature Camembert which is very creamy and soft and has a pronounced flavour. A smoked tomato chutney also works well with this toastie if you are looking for a bit of extra flavour!

Recipe: 
Preheat oven to 160°C/ 140°C Fan/Gas Mark 3.
Butter one side of the bread, season and lay butter side up.
Slice the Le Rustique Camembert.
Build the toastie by layering on the prosciutto, half the sliced Le Rustique Camembert, fig slices, basil leaves and top with watercress.
Season and layer on the rest of the Le Rustique Camembert (you may not want to use all the cheese – it depends how cheesy you want it!). Top with the other slice of bread, butter side down.
In a shallow pan gently fry the toastie in a tbsp of oil and butter for 3-4 mins on each side until brown.
Finish cooking in the oven at 160 for a further 5–10 mins or until the cheese has melted.
