“Obatzda” Prepared Brie Cheese Dip
- 5 oz aged Brie or Camembert
- 4 oz Cream Cheese
- 4 oz Butter, softened
- 2 oz Onions, finely diced
- 1 pinch Paprika
- 1 pinch Caraway, ground
- Salt and Pepper to taste
Remove the rind from the brie and in a bowl break down the soft center with a fork.
Mix in cream cheese, butter, onions and seasoning.
You can add heavy cream to make it softer and the use of a little bit of wheat beer is also allowed.
Serve with bread or pretzels.
Instead of cream cheese the original recipe calls for “Romadur”, which is a stronger tasting and smelling soft cheese, in the same category as “Limburger” only milder.
Obatzda is at home in the beer gardens of Bavaria and goes back to the beer garden of the oldest brewery in the world “Weihenstephan”.
It is “the” way to still serve and enjoy over-
