Updated May 18, 2005

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon olive or vegetable oil
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 teaspoon packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 round (8 ounces) Camembert cheese
  • 2 medium green onions, chopped (2 tablespoons)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped pistachio nuts
  • 4 dozen assorted crackers or small cocktail bread slices

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Heat oil in 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook bell pepper in oil 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender. Stir in brown sugar and vinegar. Cook 1 to 2 minutes or until pepper is glazed.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, place cheese in ungreased decorative ovenproof plate or shallow ovenproof serving bowl. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until soft.
  • 3
    Spoon bell pepper mixture over cheese. Sprinkle with onions and nuts. Serve with crackers.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    The bell pepper mixture can be made up to 24 hours in advance; cover and refrigerate. Just before serving, reheat in the microwave on High for 1 to 2 minutes.
  • tip 2
    Serve on a gold or silver holiday platter, and tuck a few sprigs of fresh rosemary around the cheese.
  • tip 3
    Camembert is a wonderful rich, creamy cheese from France that typically comes in a round and has a soft edible rind. When ripe, this fragrant cheese oozes slightly.
