This is a really easy appetizer recipe! Quick, and can be served with crackers or sliced Granny Smith apples. Leaves you "free and easy" to take care of the rest of the meal!
- 2 lbs brie round, fully ripened and chilled
- 1⁄2 cup green onion, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup walnuts or 1⁄2 cup pecans, chopped
- 1⁄4 cup raisins
- Remove rind from top of cheese.
- Place cheese on a foil lined baking sheet; top with onions, nuts, and raisins.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes or until cheese softens.
- Serve warm with crackers or sliced Granny Smith apples.
What a nice way to serve Brie! I usually bake Camembert, but this worked very well! I assembled it all and then took it to a friend's house for a happy hour appy! We all enjoyed it with local French bread cut into sqaures to dip in it. I feel that to add any more ingredients to this, would be to over complicate the flavours, which should be BRIE first and everything else a slight second - so the flavours were very enjoyable for all of us! OH yes, I was VERY French, I left it in the box to serve! Made as a gift for Santa's Grotto - al little late, I have been so busy! Thanks! FT:-) (No photos - sorry - next time!)
I'm rating this 3 stars, not because there was anything particularly wrong with it at all, but just becuase it lacked sparkle and that little something extra that could have sent this recipe into orbit. DH and lunch guests agreed that it was nice.. and certainly with 5 of us it dissapeared without problem, but it just looked so much more wonderful than it tasted so we were all just a hint dissapointed in the end. I WOULD make this again.. but I would pep it up with crushed garlic or fresh herbs or "something" to make it not only look beautiful, but taste that extra bit special too. Please see my Rating System: I rate harder than most, so this one ges 3 stars and I will tweek it further to add some stronger flavours that for us at least, it really needs. Thanks!
This made a nice light supper for me. My wedge was about 6 oz, and 10 minutes in the oven worked well. I would use a younger cheese next time, mine was very ripe and runny, and overpowered the toppings. Used chopped dred apricot instead of raisins.
