I always have grand plans for the holiday. I’m going to bake a dozen gluten-free pies, and mail 100 holiday cards, and craft all my gifts! (Holy crap, I am a nut job!) In reality, where I actually live, all I’ve got time to do is throw some brie into the oven while I’m drying my hair and brushing my teeth at the same time.
This baked brie has been my holiday go-to dish this season. Who doesn’t like a large wheel of hot, melty cheese? No one. It’s a crowd pleaser and it looks like you spent hours and lots of money on it. The best part is that it takes about 15 minutes and $5 to throw together.
- A wheel of brie
- Jelly (the flavor is up to you, but I used raspberry)
- Nuts (again, you’re choice, but walnuts are my fav)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. When oven is heated, put your wheel of brie on an oven-safe dish and bake for about 15 minutes. The brie will be done when it’s lightly toasted. Usually the brie will look a bit deflated and the gooey cheese will be slightly oozing out.
Take out of the oven, liberally spread on jelly or jam and sprinkle with nuts! You look like a gourmet chef, you. Pat yourself on the back!
