Our Baked Brie is the perfect appetizer for Thanksgiving, Christmas, game day or just a neighborhood get together.

I am always looking for a delicious new appetizer to serve. Our friends, Steve and Julie, had us over for dinner and they prepared the most amazing meal for us.

While their cooking skills far surpass mine, they made an appetizer with my very favorite thing, brie cheese! OMG let me tell you more about this easy to make Baked Brie Appetizer using fresh herbs.

How to make Baked Brie Appetizer

The key to this appetizer is using a good quality olive oil and fresh herbs. You may be tempted to use dried herbs, but don’t do it! It is worth the effort.

  1. To make this easy brie cheese appetizer, you are going to slice the brie in half (you will then have 2 thinner round pieces of cheese).
    Pro-Tip: I like to make small slices out of the rind so that when the cheese melts, it oozes out into the bread.
  2. Place them on top of a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Slice the bread and spread them around the cheese, covering the entire pan.

  3. Then, using a pastry brush, lightly brush the cheese and bread with the olive oil, covering it all with a light layer of olive oil.

  4. Finely chop all of the fresh herbs and sprinkle over the cheese and bread.

  5. Bake for about 20 minutes on 275 degrees. Serve immediately.

  1. Huge hit! I loved the recommendation of cutting into a few sections of the rind so the melted cheese oozed onto the bread. Will definitely make this again and again.
