Cut 150 g Époisses into rectangular pieces about 1/2 cm (1/4 inch) thick and 4 cm (2 inches) long (1 piece of cheese per parcel).

Pepper them, then sprinkle with linseeds on both sides, pressing lightly so that the seeds stick to the cheese.

Stage 3 - 5 min.
Roll up each piece of cheese in a sheet of brik to form a neat little parcel.

See this short video to see how to do it.

Stage 4 - 2 min.

Fry the parcels in a hot frying pan until golden brown on both sides. Serve immediately with the salad.


If you cannot get Epoisses, you can use another cheese, preferably one with a soft paste, such as morbier, brie, camembert, etc., or any other you particularly like.
