Feaston’s Baked Brie

Having a party? You need this recipe. Too tired to make anything for dinner? This is for you too. Just want to hang in front of the TV and not worry about dribbling sauce or what have you down the front of your shirt? Come, then. Let’s get busy.

It's the cheesiest meal you probably have ever eaten.

All you need:

  • Brie (about 4 ounces per person)
  • a loaf of bread

Set your oven to 350 degrees and while you’re standing in front of it, move the racks to the top two positions.

While the oven is heating up, slice the bread into thick cuts. Set the brie (with the rind still on) on a cookie sheet.

We actually just used the bottom part of a small broiler.

Bake the brie on the top rack and the bread on the rack underneath. While the brie melts, the bread will toast (flip the slices after five minutes or so).

Just let the brie go for 10 minutes total, and it should look something like the first photo.

Serve the two together on a plate with a knife. Iz so divine! Add wine. Feel Frrrrrench.

A few notes:

Try and get a nice, buttery brie. It doesn’t have to be the most expensive one at the store, but it’s the star of the show, so make it worth your while. I also want to add that I hate the smell of brie, but find the taste awesome, so don’t turn your nose up at it.

Secondly, this is a basic recipe. You can pretty much top the brie with whatever your little heart desires. Like what?

Well …

  • warmed apricot jam
  • pepper jelly
  • honey and toasted almonds
  • cranberries or cranberry sauce
  • brown sugar
  • peaches and pecans

… the list goes on and on. Try it “plain” once and see what you think. And tell us how you’d top it in the comments.

    Ok, that picture is food porn…I’m drooling! I have never made brie for myself at home, why did I think it would be complicated? This will be my date for Monday Night Football tonight!!!

    I’ve cooked down raspberries with a little sugar…until it basically gets thick and a bit sweet and poured it over the top. No real recipe, just wing it. Yum! Yum!
