Getting Baked: An Easy Baked Brie Recipe for the Holidays

Cooking for the holidays couldn’t get any easier than this withthe Brie Baker Gift Set. I’m all about spending hours in the kitchen, cooking with friends and eating lots of cheese but the cheese biz is hectic this time of year — not much time to spend in the kitchen! After long days in cheese land, finding the right dish to bring to holiday festivities  can be a bit challenging.

It needs to be:

1. Mostly Cheese…. Do I need to explain?

2. Cheap and Easy… I love my friends but gotta watch the wallet!

3. Impressive…. Because I got a cheese rep to keep up, ya know?

Sometimes you’ve gotta go with Betty Crocker, but it’s gotta look Martha Stewart. There are a couple of ways to bake a wheel of cheese, but this year we got our hands on a new piece of cookware that is perfect for the job. In fact, I love this guy so much, I sent my mom the “Brie Baker Gift Set” which comes with the cheese and Fig Jam.

This stuff is versatile — a great savory early party snack, or sweet after dinner indulgence.

Here is what you need:

                 1. Grab A Brie Baker                       2. Choose A Wheel of Cheese

        In Bright Murray’s Red!                                          We went with Camembert.

3. Get Jammin’
           Fruity Anarchy in a Jar         Savory With Tomato Jam        Luscious Fig Jam

 

4.Toppings!

Go nuts, keep it savory or sweeten it up.

 

 

 

 

 

5.Bake That Brie!

  Pop that wheel in — nice and snug.                              Spread that jam on thick!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Top with some cherries.                                              And some Marcona Almonds.

Pop it in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes.

Grab a crispy baguette, rip off a chunk and get dippin’. Couldn’t be easier, and you now look like a culinary mastermind. This dish is great for the lazy college students heading home for the holidays looking to impress everyone at family dinner. Or a soccer mom looking for an effortless dish to bring to that holiday party. Even better, it’s a great project for the little ones… let the kids choose the toppings and go nuts! And don’t forget, it’s a great gift.

And that’s that. You are now officially a Brie Baker!
