Grilled brie is an easy and elegant appetizer that is perfect for summer and fall. Topped with a drizzle of honey and chopped walnuts (or pecans), it’s deliciously decadent. It’s easy to customize, too – and I love serving it with my favorite homemade crostini or crackers.

Grilled brie is a delightful variation of my grilled mozzarella appetizer – it’s so easy to make, and so creamy and melty! It’s so flexible to serve, too. I like to serve it with an incredible variety of fruits, herbs, preserves, nuts and drizzled toppings of all kinds. It’s a fabulous restaurant-worthy appetizer, and one that my whole family enjoys!

My catering career taught me that simplicity is key for entertaining – because simple foods are the ones people often love the most. This 3 ingredient grilled brie is the ultimate example!

Tip from my Test Kitchen

A cedar plank is a must have for grilled brie! This method is important for several reasons. First, because it prevents the cheese from melting through the grill grates. It also imparts a smoky flavor and aroma, and it helps evenly conduct heat too! Don’t forget to soak the plank before grilling.

Serving Suggestions

I like to serve grilled brie with crostini, sliced baguette or crackers, and there are so many fun topping variations. Top with preserves or fresh raspberries, blueberries, strawberries or peaches. It’s so easy to customize for summer or fall!

  • 7 ounces brie wedge
  • 3 tablespoons walnuts or pecans, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons honey


  • Soak a cedar plank in water for at least 30 minutes, up to 4 hours. This will keep it from burning.
  • Preheat your grill to medium high.
  • Place your cheese on the plank. Place plank on top of the grate.
  • Grill with lid closed for 7-8 minutes. Add honey and nuts over the top, and grill for another 2 minutes to warm through.
  • Remove from grill and serve warm directly from cedar plank, or remove to a platter.

Julie’s Tips

Brie rind is edible. For this grilled brie, it’s best to leave it on to help it keep its shape as it warms. 
Use a cedar plank to grill your brie wedge. If you don’t have one, that’s okay – try heavy duty aluminum foil! You can use a full brie round (with rind on) directly on the grill grate, but watch it carefully to ensure it doesn’t melt too quickly and burst out of the rind.

Storage Notes

Use Within 3-4 Days: Baked brie is best enjoyed fresh but can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. The longer it’s stored, the more the texture and flavor may change.
Freezing: If you need to store it for a longer period, you can freeze baked brie. Wrap it tightly in plastic wrap, then in aluminum foil, and place it in a freezer-safe bag. It can be frozen for up to a month. Thaw it in the refrigerator before reheating.


When you’re ready to enjoy the baked brie again, preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Remove the wrappings and place the brie on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Heat for about 10-15 minutes or until it’s warmed through and melty again. Avoid reheating in the microwave, which can result in uneven melting.
