I’m a huge Brie fan and always interested in finding new great Brie recipes. When I was judging a recipe contest for a cheese company and came across this recipe, I was really excited. It’s such a breeze and only 3 ingredients. All you need to do is roast the garlic and warm up the Brie, and you have an easy, delicious appetizer. This is perfect for Christmas, New Years or any time of the year.
Roasted Garlic-Topped Brie
6 to 8 appetizer servings
1 whole garlic bulb
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 (8-ounce) round Brie round
1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Remove the loose outer skin of the garlic bulb. Cut off the top of garlic bulb. Place garlic, cut side up, in center aluminum foil. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Wrap garlic and seal in foil. Bake 45 minutes or until golden and soft. Let cool.
2. Squeeze the roasted garlic cloves out from the skins. Chop finely. Remove top rind of cheese and then spread roasted garlic on top. Place on baking sheet lined with parchment.
3. Bake 5 to 10 minutes or until the sides of the cheese appear soft.
4. Cut and serve with your favorite crackers and fruit.
