Recipe Tips

  • Make sure your oven is at full temperature before putting the cheese in. If you put the cheese in as the oven is just warming up, you may end up with consistency problems.
  • Since this recipe thrives around the cheese, you will certainly benefit if you get a better quality brie cheese. That said it is still great with the cheaper varieties.
  • If you want to add a bit of sweetness to this baked brie recipe, then I recommend drizzling some honey over the top. Do this before you put it in the oven, so you get a delicious warm honey and brie combo.

This recipe is best to serve with some crackers and fresh fruit. I find sliced apple is the best match for the brie. Also if you have some around then olive tapenade goes well when you combine it with a cracker and the soft, warm brie. Other additions such as compotes and nut mixes go amazing with this recipe.

If you like this recipe, then be sure to check out the delicious fried camembert recipe. It again is super easy, and you get some fantastic crunchy gooey pieces of cheese. These go well in a salad, or you can just eat them by themselves.

If you’re a fan of soft cheeses, then you should also take a look at the baked brie wrapped in puff pastry. Much like this recipe, it turns out to be lovely and gooey but on the outside has a flaky, crunchy shell.
