Brie… either you love it or you hate it. I’ve happened to grow a love for it recently and can’t seem to get enough. This weekend I decided to give baked brie a try. My super easy baked Brie with Cranberry Onion Jam was soooo delicious and would be perfect for your next holiday get together.
This dish is pretty impressive on it’s own, or you could really impress your guests by creating a beautiful cheese board, making this the center stage like this one here at The Endless Meal. I’ve also taken a stab at creating a brunch inspired charcuterie board and would love to give a cheese board a try.
Brie is a soft-ripened cheese made from cow’s milk with an edible rind. It has a nutty flavor with subtle tones of mushroom. It’s texture is creamy in the center and slightly runny, depending on the brand.
Baked Brie is extremely easy to make. You can bake it on it’s own or throw it in a bread bowl like I did which creates an edible vessel that your guests can break into and eat. It only takes about 15 minutes to bake your brie, creating a warm gooey center.
Baked Brie can be very versatile. You can go sweet and top it with honey or jams and serve it with crackers and/or sliced apples. Or, you can go savory and top it with caramelized onions, cured meats, crackers, toasted bread, etc. I met somewhere in the middle with mine and created a sweet savory topping and served it alongside toasted bread made from the inside of the bread bowl and crackers.
So what do you think? Can you see yourself serving this easy appetizer at your next holiday party? Would you top it with something sweet or savory? Let me know down in the comments if you think you’ll give this recipe a try!
Until next time,
