Last Sunday night I came home from work and decided all that I wanted for dinner was brie and wine. So that's what I had! Gotta indulge every once in a while. I've only every consumed brie, I haven't actually ever made it myself. Guess I can check that one off now! Making brie is actually quite easy and the combinations are endless. However, I will be investing in a dish for baking brie for the future. I'm leaning more towards this one (not specifically for baking brie, but the size is perfect), but here are a few other cuties:
Alright, let me get to it already!
Brown Suga' Baked Brie
What Ya' Need
- 1 wheel of Brie
- Brown Sugar
- Water crackers or bland crackers for munching (I used the plain Carr's brand). You could always serve with apples, pears, or pita bites too.
How To Make It
- Remove wrapping from brie.
- May feel like there is still some stuff on your brie. Shave that off with a knife, making sure not to shave off any of your yummy cheese. You can leave that rind like stuff on to keep your cheese uniform/prevent it from spreading/oozing, you'll just have to eat around it.
- Place in baking dish.
- Pack brown sugar on top of your cheese.
a littlelots of honey over the brown sugar.
- Pack walnuts on top of the brown sugar/honey.
- Then pack craisins on top of that.
- Bake at 350F for about 15 minutes.
- Enjoy with wine! I enjoyed mine with a yummy Sauvignon Blanc.
Here are a few other tasty brie recipes. Like I said, the possibilities are endless!
Have some brie and wine this Monday. What's gonna be your excuse? It's Monday for crying out loud! You could make a sweet/savory one similar to mine, or go completely crazy with garlic and herbs.
