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 in Puff Pastry is one of my favorites because it’s unbelievably delicious and SO simple!
How to Make Baked Brie in Puff Pastry
It’s always a crowd pleaser. Baked Brie in Puff Pastry is made with just 3 ingredients – brie, puff pastry and an egg! It takes just 5 minutes hands on time, then bake and allow it to set 15 minutes before serving. It’s effortless, yet elegant!
Baked Brie with Jam
Even plain, it’s a beautiful (and delicious) hors ‘oeuvres, but you can take it up a notch by making Baked Brie with Jam! Use your favorite to make it out of this world.
A few of my favorite jams to use with Baked Brie in Puff Pastry are onion jam, bacon jam, apricot, strawberry and orange! You can make it sweet or savory! Topping it with preserves adds a little added color, too!
The first slice is always the best as you watch buttery brie pour out of the puff pastry shell.
What to Serve with Baked Brie in Puff Pastry
It’s the perfect compliment to water crackers, apples (granny smith are my favorite), pears, toasted baguette, jam, honey, and nuts!
Yes, it’s as good as it looks!
