Pickled Bloody Maria Cheese? Czech Yeah!

Pickled Bloody Maria Cheese? Czech Yeah!

Nakládaný Hermelín, more commonly known as Czech marinated or pickled cheese, is a big deal. Czech Republic locals base their restaurant choice on how good the cheese is. For those of you who are lucky enough to have experienced this cheese first-hand, you know why it's sought-after. Hermelín is a soft cheese, soaked in oil and spices and marinated for about a week. You can easily substitute Camembert or Brie here in the States.

We love this so much, we tried it with Bloody Maria mix to better complement the Bloody Marias we were enjoying with our brunch. The result? Love at first bite. Try it for yourself....here's how.


  • Camembert cheese
  • Onion (1 large)
  • 8 Garlic cloves
  • 3 Bay leaves
  • Oil
  • 1 t. Black peppercorns
  • 2 T. Thyme
  • 1/4 c. Bloody Maria Mix


Cut the cheese into bite-size cubes, and put it into a lidded jar with all the spices and oil. It may take a few experiments to see how much garlic, onion and spices taste best. Start with the amounts listed above and then shift the quantity. Let it soak for about five to seven days, until it becomes very soft. Enjoy with Bloody Marias and toast or crackers, and you've got yourself a brunch! Na zdraví!
