Camembert & Fig 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!
Serves two
Total Time
15 Minutes
4 slices of thick sourdough bread

Build the toastie by layering on the prosciutto, half the sliced Le Rustique Camembert, fig slices, basil leaves and top with watercress.
