OMG Baked Brie

11 Oct

Mmm mmm mmm! That’s the sound your friends will make when you feed them this baked brie. It’s surprisingly easy to make and tastes mind-blowingly good!

baked brie cheese - a delicious treat to serve as part of a finger food platter

Ingredients:

one full round of brie

few sprigs thyme and rosemary

one clove garlic, finely sliced

salt and pepper to taste

Method:

Buy a full round of brie, preferably one in a wooden box as you can use this wooden box to bake it in. (See Note)

Preheat the oven to 180°C fan-forced, or 200°C non fan-forced).

Unwrap the brie, and discard the wrapper. Place the brie on a square of baking paper, enough to come up the sides of the box, and put it back into the box.

Cut a few holes into the top of the brie with a sharp knife and insert sprigs of thyme and rosemary, slivers of finely sliced garlic, and season with salt and pepper.

Cover the entire box loosely with a piece of aluminium foil and place in the oven for about 20 minutes.

This can be served in the box, or removed from the box (carefully!) and is best eaten with a knife and a fresh baguette.

Enjoy!

Notes:

You can get away with buying a cheaper brie and baking it in a small, preferably round, baking dish, by following the same baking paper and aluminum foil method.

Play around with flavours – try finely sliced sun-dried tomatoes and olives, with sprigs of oregano for a different taste.
