Camembert Bread Course

In Iceland there is a tradition to serve bread courses when there is a party, birthday, confirmation, christening etc. This is often aimed at the grown ups or those who don’t like cakes and sweet stuff. These are also served hot which makes them delicious.

They may not look nice but I promise, the taste is awesome!

For those who do not like Camembert I also have a recipe here for a bread course with asparagus and ham.

This course is best served with some redcurrant jelly.

The Camembert bread course is the one at the bottom to the left and the asparagus and ham one is to the right. On the left side of the Camembert course is a bowl with the jelly I serve with it.

You will need the following ingredients: 

  • 6 Slices of bread, I use soft white bread
  • 1 Camembert
  • 2,5 dl. Cream
  • 6 Slices of ham, diced
  • 1 Small green paprika, diced
  • 1 small red paprika, diced


  1. Cut down the Camembert and put in a pot and a little cream. While the Camembert is melting you gradually add the cream to ti mixture.
  2. Tear down the bread, don’t make the pieces to small and don’t think to much about this step as the course is not suppose to look nice. Therefor literally tear it down into irregular pieces and put in the bottom of a baking pan/oven tray.
  3. Add the ham and paprika to the mixture in the pot and stir. Then pour over the bread in the baking pan/oven tray. Mix gently with a fork so the bread is all soaked.
  4. Pop into a 180 – 200 °C preheated oven for about 15 minutes.
