More Baked Brie Recipes
Baked brie is one of the best and easiest ways to serve a warm and cheesy appetizer (and one of my favorites). Here are a few more recipes for you to try:
This is a simple, yet impressive, assemble and bake appetizer that can be assembled up to 1 day ahead, then bake when you need it. Additionally, the best part of using puff pastry is that is it always better to purchase than make yourself.
Warm, creamy brie and nutty pistachios are a delightful and complementary flavor combination. Then you add the sweet pop of fresh pomegranate seeds and herby rosemary, this is a superfecta of flavors.
Baked Brie in Puff Pastry Options
Add a drizzle of really good honey or a light grating of orange zest to take the flavors to another level. Chopped fresh figs are also a tasty option.
Pistachios, pomegranate seeds and rosemary are not a combination that I ever thought of putting together, but the flavors all work so well with the warm, creamy brie (Camembert can also be used). And it looks festive too, perfect for holiday entertaining.
A Classic French Brie Recipe
This baked brie, also known as brie ‘en croûte (pronounced ‘on-kroot’, a French term for being wrapped in pastry) looks so elegant that your hungry eaters will think you bought it from a specialty cheese shop.
Wrapping Brie in Puff Pastry
When it came to wrapping the brie I did not completely wrap the entire wheel of cheese in the pastry. I left it open at the top so I could pile on the nuts and seeds. The fluted edge makes for a pretty presentation too.
