Oven-Roasted Queso Fresco Cheese and Apples


We’ve all heard of baked camembert cheese – that rich, buttery French dish, right? Well this Oven-Roasted Queso Fresco Cheese and Apples is a lighter take on the baked cheese idea. Queso fresco is fresh and mild Mexican cheese which is simple to make from scratch and tastes absolutely delicious when served with nuts and apples.

It’s so easy to make this baked queso too. Start by mixing apples, butter, honey, rosemary leaves and your choice of nuts in a baking dish. I’ve used pistachios, walnuts, almonds and pecans for this before and they all taste great when once the cheese is placed on top and baked until golden brown! I like to serve this dish in the center of the table with freshly baked bread.

To make Oven-Roasted Queso Fresco Cheese and Apples, you will need the following ingredients:

I dont think cheese goes very well with apples but my husband liked it.

I was judging this dish hardcore when I first saw it and now its my favourite lunch to make.

Danica Dicicco

Skipped the rosemary, not a fan of the flavor but everything else was delightful :)

The apple slices were definitely too large the first time I made this. I had to re-do the dish with smaller ones.

Alisa Palzer

Very filling, going to be making this again next week for me and my friends.

I used almond nuts because I wasnt sure what you guys meant by nuts and it was great. Love it.

Coraline Allrich

My family gave me the crazy eye when they saw me putting cheese and apples in one bowl. Now they're all begging for me to cook this once a week.

Wren Soscia

When I first saw this I thought it would be some sort of aprils fools joke because who puts apples and cheese together, well starting now its going to be me doing that. This was fantastic.
