How to Serve Brie as an Appetizer

It's fancy, delicious, and the perfect asset to any appetizer table at the most casual or the fanciest gatherings. And it goes a long way, trust me. 

Baked Brie (Baked Brie en Croute)

You'll need - Brie, crescent rolls (can also use puff pastry in lieu of the crescent rolls); brown sugar, fruit preserves (your pick. I'm a big fan of apricot preserves but Whole Foods has a nice selection of preserves to pair with cheeses). 

Easy: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees; place some brown sugar across the top of the brie; wrap the brie with crescent rolls or puff pastry; place additional brown sugar over the top of the crescent roll or puff pastry covered brie; bake for approximately 15 minutes; once it's baked and cooled, top with fruit preserves and serve.

Less Easy: Before wrapping the brie with the crescent roll or puff pastry, top with fancy fillings (any combination of melted butter, cinnamon, walnuts, brown sugar, and/or fruit compotes). Wrap the brie with puff pastry or crescent rolls, bake, and serve. 

Topped Brie: Top the brie with fruit preserves. Brie served room temperature. (as seen in photo above). 

Basic Brie: Serve on nice plating and surround with pears, grapes, strawberries, sliced bread, or crackers.
