Baked Brie

When staples, basics or first recipes are mentioned, it’s not unusual for Baked Brie to enter the conversation.  In fact, Baked Brie recipes are so simple they can be passed along at a cocktail party on a half-used napkin.

Brie is a soft cheese made up of about 20-26 percent of fat. It has a smooth and soft mold around the exterior of the creamy interior. Both the interior and exterior of the cheese are edible but, if the taste is too strong, you can always remove it.

Brie can be purchased in wedges or as a round and, if you are interested in baking Brie, always buy the round. The firm cheese becomes gooey and loses its form as it warms up.

Bries and other soft cheeses lose their delicate flavor in hot temperatures. So, when you’re choosing a perfect recipe, choose one that doesn’t require a lot of cooking time for the best results.

Bries can be served with a variety of breads, crackers and fruits. A few favorites are apple slices, crostinis, brioche, french bread, fruit and nut crackers and black pepper crackers.

So, if you’re in the group that has never made baked Brie or you’re one who makes them all the time and need some new ideas, look no further.

Baked Brie with caramelized onions

Ingredients:

  • ½ yellow onion
  • 1 round of Brie

Remove the stem and peel from the onion, then slice the onion in half. Cut the onion into ¼” strips. In a sauté pan heat the olive oil and add the cut onion. Next, turn the fire to a medium low, season with salt and pepper and cook the onions until they’re golden brown. This could take up to half an hour (this can be done a day ahead of time). While the onions are cooking, preheat the oven to 325. Place the Brie on a greased baking sheet and top it with the  onions. Bake the Brie and onions for 10-12 minutes.

Baked brie

Updated: December 31st, 2016

Baked brie is the first appetizer to be cut, the first appetizer to be eaten completely and the first recipe everyone asks for. The simplicity of baked brie recipes make it perfect for any level of home chef.

This recipe uses whites (brie), golds (golden orange and fig jam) and silver (a beautiful serving tray), a perfect combination to kick off the new year.

Brie is a soft, creamy and mild cheese. It should be bought in a round rather than a wedge for baked brie so the cheese stays in tact when it is cooked.

Directions

Baked BriePreheat your oven to 325 degrees.

In a large bowl add walnuts, olive oil and salt.

Toss the walnuts until they are lightly covered with olive oil.

Place them on a light cookie sheet and bake them for 5 to 10 minutes moving them around every few minutes to keep them from burning.

Remove them and let them cool. Next preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Then take your wheel of brie and score the top (cut three vertical lines and three horizontal lines but only make them deep enough to cut through the rind).

Add the orange fig jam and spread it over the top and make sure to not go all the way to the edge.

Then place the brie onto a nonstick cookie sheet. Bake the brie for 12 minutes and cook it a bit before your guests show up so it has time to cool slightly. Serve with desired crackers
