At a glance
24 slices of Baguette
1/2-3/4 cup Duck Fat (can be purchased)
5 cloves of Garlic (or to taste)
Ile De France Camembert Cheese
Dried Thyme
Water to blanch garlic


In a small saucepan , blanch garlic cloves until tender( about 1 minute). In a small mixing bowl mash the garlic into the duck fat. You can use a immersion blender or food processor to make smooth.
Take a pastry brush and brush each slice of Baguette. Assemble small wedges of Camembert into two slices of bread. Arrange on a parchment lined baking sheet and drizzle with dried Thyme.
Bake at 350 F until golden, approx 15 minutes. Turn/flip sandwiches midway and press down with spatula to aid the cheese in melting. Turn up to 400 F the last few minutes to insure crispness and browning. Serve on passed platters or on small plates with dressed greens.
*Can be kept in warming oven until ready to serve.
