Jalapeno Baked Brie

"A totally different baked brie! This is so easy to make and tastes so good, I could eat it all by myself. (But since everyone else seems to like it, I do share.) I usually keep the ingredients for this on hand (there's only 4!) so I can make this on a moment's notice. I serve it on a round platter with crackers surrounding it. Although the recipe calls for green pepper sauce, you can use whatever kind you like. I usually use one of the A**-Kicking Brand ones, for some real heat! I like to save just a little bit of the dough, which I cut with an appropriate cookie cutter (i.e. angels for Christmas, stars for 4th of July, etc.). I use this to cover the seam of the dough, which serves to both seal the dough and make it look pretty! The recipe comes from the Tabasco hot sauce company."

Ready In:




  • Preheat oven to 375°F Cut away rind from Brie.
  • Remove crescent roll dough from tubes and place on a floured surface; knead all the dough together and roll or press into a thin circle large enough to encase the cheese.
  • Move the dough to an ungreased baking sheet.
  • Place the Brie in the center of the dough.
  • Use a fork to poke the top of the cheese several times.
  • Pour half of the hot sauce on the cheese, spreading it around with a spoon; let it sit a minute or two so the sauce can sink inches Spread the rest of the sauce on the cheese- it's ok if some dribbles down the sides.
  • Fold the dough up over the top of the cheese and pull it shut with your fingers.
  • Brush the edges of the dough with the egg to help seal.
  • Bake for about 10 minutes or as the dough package directs; or until browned.
  • Don't overbake or the cheese will run out.
  • Remove from pan to a serving dish and serve hot.

My husband and I married straight out of college in July of 1992. I work as the Assistant Manager at a wine shop which allows me to drink on the job! (OK, not that much, but it's still a fun job...) Besides helping customers choose wine they will like (and also help with food and wine pairings for their menus), I also get to help with the catering end of the business, so I get to spend a fair amount of time in the kitchen making fun appetizers and beautiful food displays. I also work part-time at the fromagerie next door. So yeah - that means I eat on the job, too. :^D We live on several peaceful wooded acres on a cute little river in rural NE Wisconsin, with a cranky old-lady Burmese and whatever stray outdoor cats that have decided to adopt us on any given day. The cute puppy in the picture is Jake, our Elhew-bred English Pointer that we brought home on Easter weekend 2007. I've also got 2 painted turtles named Dennis and Fuzz, and a bunch of fish (koi and goldfish, along with the guppies & swordtails in the turtle tank). I USUALLY eat and cook healthy, but I rarely pass up dessert, either. I do not eat red meat, and try to limit other animal products, too. I love to bake, although I seem to collect a lot of scone and biscotti recipes which I NEVER get around to making. I bake and eat A LOT of cookies and muffins... I almost always reduce the sugar by 1/4 and use whole wheat pastry flour for at least part of the flour. Those two changes do so much to make recipes healthier without compromising taste. I try to reduce fat whenever I can, too, but while I want to eat healthy, I still want to ENJOY what I eat!!! I seem to give a lot of 4 and 5 star reviews here - I seem to have a pretty good sense of what I like by looking at a recipe before I try it. Thank you to anyone that tries my recipes in return, or photographs them.
