  • Yield: 6 servings 1x


  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (8 ounce) wheel camembert cheese
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • Grilled crostini or crackers, to serve


  1. Preheat the grill to low heat.
  2. As the grill warms, prepare the strawberries. Remove the tops and then cut the strawberries in half, lengthwise. Quarter any especially large berries. Transfer to a large bowl.
  3. Add the blueberries, sugar, balsamic vinegar, thyme, salt, and pepper, and toss well to combine. Let sit to macerate for 30 minutes.
  4. Coat the outside of the camembert with cooking spray. Place cheese directly on the grill and cook, covered, 5 minutes or until grill-marked. Flip and continue to cook for 5 more minutes.
  5. Gently transfer the camembert to a plate and spoon the berry mixture on top. Serve warm with grilled crostini or crackers.
