MAKING BAKED BRIE FOR A PARTY

This is always a popular appetizer! Here are a few helpful tips and ideas to make your party appetizer a huge hit!

Have a variety of crackers for dipping. Everyone has a different cracker preference, provide a variety of crackers for your guests. A few examples include: classic butter crackers, whole wheat crackers, seedy crackers, and gluten-free crackers.

Have a second wheel of brie and more toppings on reserve, because this will disappear fast! I’m not kidding, baked brie tends to get gobbled up quickly. Having the option to make another round of this party appetizer can make you the hero of the party.

Super-size it for a large gathering. For bigger parties, opt for a larger wheel of brie. This recipe is written for a standard sized wheel of brie (8-10oz), but you can purchase a larger sized wheel of brie (20oz) from stores like Costco. Increasing the size of the brie, you’ll need to double the jam and pistachios as well, and then bake it a little longer (about 20 minutes).

EXPERT TIPS

No need to remove the rind of the brie cheese. This is edible, and helps keep your baked brie together through cooking. No need to try and remove it!

Bake and serve your brie in an oven safe bowl to contain the cheese. While it may seem fun to place your baked brie on a lovely cheese board, the moment you dip into it your melty cheese runs everywhere. Just trust me, serving it in a bowl is the way to go.

Place your oven safe dish on a baking sheet while in the oven for easy handling. This makes your life easier getting your brie in and out of the oven.
