Wow, this recipe was great!! I did not have any basil, so I used dried parsley. I did not have 6oz of brie, so I put 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese and about 2-3 oz of cream cheese in the pan. I mixed and melted. The butter did not mix well with the cheese. I put the mixture on the french bread and broiled it. It still turned out wonderful. Thanks!
We loved this recipe-It is easy and Oh so good. I cut the butter back to 1 tbsp, used a whole wheat Portuguese bun. I removed the rind from the Brie because I find that it doen't melt easily and depending on the type can add a bitter taste. This is a do again and again recipe
As in Julie & Julia- you can never have too much butter! Loved this recipe but discovered that I am not a fan of brie cheese (this was the first time ever trying it). I would make this recipe again with a different type of cheese, maybe feta or gouda ??
Love brie anything!!!
Yummy this was soon good. thanks for sharing
This bread is just luverly! I used a day-old ciabatta loaf instead of French bread. I think I could have cut down on the butter and still ended up with the same mouth-watering results. When I do this next time, I think I will cut the rind off the brie...I don't particularly care for the rind and, also, i noticed that it didn't melt as well as the rest of the ooey-gooey, oh so yummy brie did. Thanks for a blue ribbon recipe! Love it.
While this tasted great I don't think I really got bang for my buck. The brie taste didn't really come through.
Have to say I agree with the previous review of there being too much butter. I could have written that review as I also used onion flakes. The taste was there and I will definitely make this again but with half the amount of butter. Oh and I may try it on the Garlic Bread from Costco with the whole cloves of garlic baked in.
Waaaay too buttery. I'm kind of grossed out, actually. And I love butter. I think you could cut it in half and be fine. I was really pressed for time, so I used onion flakes. I think that was a decent shortcut.
After seeing the lovely photo JustJanS posted, I knew that I had to try this recipe. I made French Countryside Bread (Bread Machine - Abm) for the French bread and subbed green onion for the onion (personal preference). It turned out great! Every bit of it got eaten, what a delicious recipe! I will definitely make this again, thanks for posting.
