Baked brie – it has got to be one of the easiest, most simple dishes to serve as an appetizer and one of the biggest crowd pleasers. How can you contend with warm soft cheesy goodness? Oh yeah, by slathering it in honey and almonds, and serving it alongside some perfectly toasted, ever-so-crusty bread.
Brie and Fresh crusty bread (Italian loaf or French baguette)
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.Why is it that the dial on just about every oven in the places where I’ve lived have the numbers rubbed off?
Place the brie round, rind and all, on something oven and griller safe. A cookie sheet or pie tin will work well.
Once the oven has reached temperature, place the brie in the oven on the top rack for 10-12 minutes. Slice some nice fresh bread and throw t in there along with the brie to get crusty.
After 10 minutes it should be oozing a bit of cheese out of its bottom – don’t be afraid of it getting a bit molten
Making sure to support the bottom of the brie, carefully move it to a plate. Arrange the hot crusty bread from the oven around the brie.Top the brie with honey, almonds, jam
