Baked Brie

Baked Brie

Warm, rich and creamy brie baked with sumptuous toppings is one of the easiest appetizers to make. A quick 5-10 minute layering of your select toppings, then bake in the oven for about 15 minutes. Serve your baked brie with a variety of crackers, or warmed slices of baguette, sourdough or flatbread. Voila! A quick, easy and elegant appetizer.

The mild nuttiness of brie pairs well with lots of different flavors. Top it with some dried cranberries, nuts, and honey for a sweeter treat. Or for something more savory opt for garlic, herbs and chopped peppers or olives. Caramelized onions or bacon jam are also wonderful options. Fruit such as apricots, pears or roasted grapes goes well when baked on top or served alongside.

Wrapping the brie in a puff pastry is another delicious option. If you are using pre-made puff pastry, your prep time is about the same. It will take a little longer to bake but is still an elegant, quick dish that looks like you slaved away much longer.
