Recipe for Baked Brie

I’ve always wrapped baked brie in puff pastry when I’ve had it before. However, as I experimented with this dish, I discovered that I preferred it without the cheese. For starters, the preparation becomes a lot easier because there’s no need to stretch out the dough and wrap the cheese in it before baking.

Simply remove the brie from the fridge and place it in the oven! (Note: Make sure the brine is cold before putting it in the oven.) Otherwise, it will melt rather than soften while baking.)

Second, omitting the puff pastry allows for more creative and festive garnishes! When I cook, I like to use seasonal ingredients, and fresh pomegranate seeds are a great compliment here. They not only look beautiful, but they also provide a sweet/tart, sharp contrast to the gooey, buttery cheese.

To make the flavors pop, I add toasted pistachios, rosemary, honey, and sea salt. Tip: In each bite, try to get a little bit of everything!

Serving Ideas for Baked Brie

This baked brie tastes best when it’s still warm from the oven. Make sure to bake it on a parchment-lined baking sheet so you can quickly transfer it from the hot baking sheet to a serving tray. Then, on top of the brie, scatter your garnishes. I utilized pomegranate seeds, honey, pistachios, rosemary, and sea salt in a recipe that I highly suggest. It has a delicious blend of sweet, acidic, crunchy, and aromatic ingredients, and it looks so gorgeous and festive.

Of course, various toppings would be excellent with this baked brie recipe. If you want to spice things up, try including something from each of the following categories:

  • Replace the pomegranates with another seasonal fruit or jam. A dollop of cherry jam or cranberry sauce on the side, as well as apple slices for dipping, would be fantastic!
  • Pistachios can be replaced with chopped toasted walnuts or pecans.
  • Try thyme leaves instead of rosemary leaves.
