Baked Brie

Baked Brie is an entertaining classic. It's a beautiful crowd pleaser, especially for the holidays & prepared in just 5 minutes!
Tis the season!  It seems there is never a shortage of holiday parties to attend, often where you are asked to bring an appetizer or side dish.  This baked brie is one of my favorites because it’s unbelievably delicious and SO simple!  Guests are always raving about it & you can let it set 20 minutes before serving.

This crowd pleaser is one of the easiest hors d’oeuvres I make that serves 15. Note: I leave the rind on the brie. It helps it hold it’s shape & adds incredible flavor. If you don’t usually care for the rind, I encourage you to try it baked because it softens. It can still be avoided if you decide you don’t like it.

      Thank you, Connie for making my day! I love really great homemade meals without the stress. Be sure to visit my “my recipes” board on Pinterest for plenty of easy recipes! Unfortunately I don’t have a pad Thai recipe…I don’t care for Asian food, much to my husband’s dismay!

    I love baked Brie but do not like the coating around the outside. Do you trim it off before baking or is it not so noticible inside the puff pastry? I love your recipes!

      Thank you! I leave the rind. It softens & adds incredible flavor, while helping it maintain a pretty shape. If you don’t care for it, there’s plenty of brie that will seep out you can enjoy without the rind.
