Baked Brie

I've been wanting to try this forever! I keep hearing how fabulous baked brie is and how it's always such a hit at parties, but I never got a chance to try it. Well, I still didn't get to try it this year since brie is on the "do not eat" list for pregnant ladies, but everyone else seemed to enjoy it!

Next I had to decide on what kind of baked brie I wanted to make. Wrapped in puff pastry? Topped with a fruit compote? What kind of fruit compote?

In the end, I decided to save myself a bit of trouble and just go with the easiest version out there...topped with honey and nuts.

I can't give a personal report on whether it was good or not, but it seemed to go over well with the guests. Hopefully I'll get a chance to try it myself one of these days...

- Brie

- Honey

- Nuts (I used sliced almonds)
- Crackers


- Place the brie on a piece of foil and pop it in the oven at 350 until the middle is soft and gooey. It shouldn't take very long at all.

- Transfer the brie onto the serving plate and drizzle honey on top.

- Garnish with nuts.

- Serve with crackers.
(I also placed a few apple slices around for a bit more color)

Brie is one of my favorite cheeses ever! Especially with crackers.. I've never tried making something with it but this baked brie sounds fabulous! I'm saving the recipe.

You can't eat brie when you're pregnant!!! Crap. I am going to have a hard nine months should such a day ever come.

This sounds fantastic and yes you really need to try it sometime!

Happy holidays!

I always think this dish looks so festive and fancy. I have never eaten Brie and have no idea what it even taste like.

This is the best appetizer! Just the best. Try and keep it around for an hour - ha! It looks delectable! Happy New year! Wanted you to know I did make it your way - never made it with honey before. Had a hard time getting it out of the kitchen - so many busy hands scooping as I walked.
