Another simple appetizer that you have probably done before but so yummy that I thought I would give you my version of Baked Brie.

This is super simple. We were given a Brie baking dish and it sat on our shelf for several years before I decided to give it a whirl- ever since it has seen good use.  That said- you don’t need the dish to make this.

1 small wheel of brie
3-4 clove garlic, chopped
Red pepper jelly


Pre-heat oven to 350

Unwrap Brie wheel and place in baking dish.  Sauté the garlic in olive oil until golden brown. When done, remove garlic to the top of the wheel, distributing evenly.

Next slather the top of your masterpiece with red-pepper jelly.  (note- if you try to spread, you’ll re-distribute the garlic, so use a little care- depends on thickness of your jelly)

Cover dish and place in pre-heated over for 7-10 minutes.  (almost always 10 for me, but ovens vary)

Brie veterans will know that you can cook it so that it is either super oozy or not soft enough, so you will have to find your own sweet spot.  Can’t be oozy enough for me.

Serve with your favorite crackers and enjoy!
