Baked Vacherin Mont d’Or

Today we had Vacherin Mont d’or for lunch and i would like to share our recipe.

In the last couple of weeks, I made this recipe 2 times 🙂 and I try to add Vacherin to our menu list at least once a month. I know it’s not super light & balanced meal but i love chesee! Especially when the weather is super cold, I like to treat myself with this amazing Swiss recipe.

Hope you enjoy it and let us know if you try it.


Cooking Level: Super easy

Cooking time: 20 mins

Ingredients:

  • Vacherin Mont d’Or
  • 3 tablespoon dry white wine
  • 2 garlic clove
  • dried oregano
  • ** you can eat vacherin with boiled potatoes & bread, dried meat and pickled cucumbers 🙂 It really depends on how you like it. For me bread, dried meat & cornichons are the best combo!

Steps:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C – fan option
  2. Wrap the cheese box with aluminum – see the photo
  3. On the top of the cheese, there is a thick layer of crust, we slightly take it off ( once the cheese melts, this crust gives a bitter taste and i dont like it).
  4. Poke 5-6 slits in the top of the cheese with a knife.
  5. Cut the garlic into 2 pieces and put them inside the cheese.
  6. Pour the wine over the cheese and bake it for 20 mins.
  7. Vacherin goes very well with flavorful white wine like Chasselas, Chardonnay or Sancerre ( my fav one)

Enjoy 🙂
