This is the ultimate Bavarian bread spread. It is served with rustic bread or soft pretzels and beer. The classic version is made with ripe Camembert cheese and butter but there are also variations that add other cheeses (see note).
With blue cheese: Mash with a fork 100g soft blue cheese, 100g ripe Camembert (rind removed), 100g cream cheese, 50g unsalted butter, softened, and 4-5 scallions, finely sliced. Season with salt, pepper and sweet paprika powder to taste. With egg yolks and garlic: Mash with a fork 250 g ripe Camembert with 150 g unsalted butter, softened, 1 egg yolk, 1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped and 1 garlic clove. Season with freshly ground pepper, a pinch of salt and sweet paprika.
