Celebrating with Friends + Family

When entertaining, it’s all about being with those you love. And the food you love! Like this baked brie recipe.

Appetizers and nibbles are wonderful before a big celebration dinner. Or, as standalone delights.

Often, foodies think it’s easier to prepare appetizers and Hors-d’oeuvres, rather than a meal when entertaining. Only to find that indeed they can be a lot of work.

But they don’t have to be. And they shouldn’t be.

 

Almost Effortless, Easy Elegance

This baked brie recipe is inspired by a dish my dear friend Gina made one evening before we moved from San Diego to the Central Coast of California.

It has a special place in my heart… so does Gina.

Savory, sweet, warm, and buttery. This dish is pure love and comfort!

Serve this quick, easy, and oh-so-impressive appetizer at your next gathering. Your guests will circle around its deliciousness, until well… it’s gone.

 

10 Minutes to Baked Brie Recipe Perfection

While your brie quickly bakes in the oven, slice up a french baguette on the bias for a pretty presentation.

Or present your beautiful baked brie with crackers, mini croissants, sliced apples, pears or figs.

We love our combination: Creamy, oozy, earthy cheese… with local raw sage honey, sweetened dried cranberries, and crunchy candied pecans.

We also love it with our Pumpkin Spiced Walnuts for a different nut variation.

You can, of course, get creative with this baked brie recipe using any nuts you like…

Chopped pistachios, walnuts, cashews, or almonds are all wonderful.

But don’t skip the honey!

A Toast to Those We Love

This gorgeous dish is even better with the right wine.

Champagne or dry, traditional method sparkling wines are lovely with baked brie. And they add a special, celebratory touch.

Here are a few we really like:


Dry, fruity Rosés, unoaked Chardonnays, and light-bodied Sauvignon Blancs also pair beautifully with this dish.

These are some very nice choices:




Here’s a toast to this delicious recipe’s inspiration, Gina… to you, and those you love!

Recipe Notes

We used two spatulas to easily transfer - one on each end of the wedge to easily move the hot brie to a serving plate.
