Love eating bakes Brie? Thinking it is too difficult to make? On a scale from easy to hard, this one is so easy anyone can make this. Plus it takes about 15 minutes to put all together.
Great for an appetizer, luncheon, football game or holiday table. Want to make an impression? Show up with baked brie and watch who argues over who get to make the first cut. Everyone wants to watch all that gooey goodness come out.
Dress up your Baked Brie with many variations. Top the brie with 2 or 3 Tablespoons of jam. Some of my favorites are raspberry, apricot and jalapeño. For Thanksgiving top with cranberry sauce. Try toasting pecans, mix with honey and place on top of the brie before wrapping. What about toping it with caramelized onions and mushrooms.
