How to make Baked Brie

I wasn ’ thyroxine exaggerating when I said you barely plonk a brie in the oven. But here ’ s a virtual ocular for how to make it .

  • What to bake it in –  use a round, shallow oven proof dish that ’ s a bit larger than the brie for bake and serving if you have one. It needs to be shallow, otherwise it ’ s hard to dip/scoop without touching the blistering dish ; OR
  • Place the brie on crumpled paper – this is what I do.This serves 2 purposes :
    • safest way to transfer – Baked Brie is wobbly and delicate, and it would be a calamity if that Baked Brie burst candid mid transfer……
    • the bent newspaper helps stop the brie from oozing out all over the table. Melted brie just needs a little sting of coaxing to stop it from running everywhere !

Recipe video above. The populace ‘s fastest finger food, this is like the best cheese dip in the global with wow factor ! Just pop a brie in the oven for 15 minutes or microwave on high for 2 minutes ( badly, no one will EVER know ). Use a budget brie or camember for this, lead end brie would be wasted on this recipe . excellent shared entree or party food that ‘s actually flying and easy to prepare. Be certain to use hardy apparent or season crackers, or crostini for scooping. Wafer thin crackers and chips tend to break .

Ingredients

  • 250 – 500g / 8 – 16 oz turn brie or camembert ( dear value is fine ! bill 1 )

  • 2 tbsp beloved or maple syrup ( optional )

  • 1 thyme sprig ( optional )

For Serving:

  • Crostini or early uncompromising crackers

  • 1 crowd purple grapes ( or green, optional )

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F (all oven types).

  • Unwrap brie and place in a small, shallow ovenproof dish slightly larger than the brie (to be used for serving) OR a piece of crumbled baking / parchment paper (for transference). (Note 2)

  • Oven: Bake for 15 to 20 minutes (for 250g/80z), or until melted through. For 500g/1lb brie, increase to 25 minutes. To check, gently touch the centre of the brie – it should feel very soft, like it is about to collapse if you press any harder.

  • Microwave option: 2 minutes on high (no one will know!) in 30 second increments.

  • Carefully transfer to serving plate / board – it’s delicate (transfer on paper if you used paper).

  • Drizzle with honey, top with sprig of thyme (if using).

  • Serve immediately with crostini on the side for scooping. Provide a knife to cut through the rind and a cheese or pate knife ( or exchangeable ) to scoop cheese up onto crostini or crackers ( knit or fruit/nut flavoured ) .

Recipe Notes:

1. Brie – I recommend using an economical brie for this. This recipe works good vitamin a well with budget brie as it does acme end. If I splurge on expensive brie, I serve it as is because I think it ’ s a waste to alter it ! Camember besides works .
2. Baked Brie Baking dish –  the most virtual way to bake / serve brie is if you have a shallow round ovenproof dish that is slenderly larger than the brie. This will stop the tall mallow from oozing out everywhere when people start eating it but it needs to be shallow otherwise you ’ ll burn your fingers trying to scoop it !
If you don ’ t have one, do one of the follow :

  • very shallow bowl or curved plate – the shape of which will hold the cheese in (ovenproof if baking, microwave proof if microwaving ie most normal dinner plates fine); OR
  • bake on crumbled paper per recipe directions – the paper makes it easy to transfer the Brie to a serving platter (Baked Brie is delicate and wobbly like jelly, and if it bursts you will cry). Plus by crumpling it, it actually (mostly) stops the cheese from oozing out onto the table (but really, you won’t be short of willing participants to dash forward and scoop up brie that’s oozing dangerously close to the edge of the serving platter!)

3. Over baking – check the brie at 15 minutes. If you can ’ thymine tell if it is ready by touching the surface of the kernel of the brie, insert a skewer and if it comes out with melt tall mallow stuck to it, then you know it is ready. ( If you overtake a brie, it goes hard in the middle )
4. Serving size – a 250g/8 oz brie will well serve 6 people, if not 8 to 10. Brie is full-bodied, and it ’ s made to seem even richer when melted. And besides once melted, less goes further – the sum you can scoop onto a firecracker is less than what you can cut & smear if it was not melted !
5. Honey / maple – I use both, it depends what I have on hand. I used to love maple more, but when I have a actually commodity ( local ) honey, I prefer honey .
6. How long it stays gooey – in a ceramic cup of tea, it will stay scoopable for a good 15 minutes or sol. On paper, around 10 minutes, then for another 10 minutes or thus you can smear it on with a knife .
7. Leftovers – perplex ! The honey / maple syrup will be mixed through when the cheese hardens and it just makes it all the more delectable. Who cares if you have to scrape up the dregs and pop into a little ramekin ? OR pile it onto toast and grillroom ! * She swoons at the opinion *
How to reheat – seconds in the microwave ! A hale brie takes 2 minutes in the microwave, so practice that as a service line for leftover brie .
8. Nutrition per serving ( bear 6 servings, 250g/8oz brie, excludes crostini )
