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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Finely chop all of the fresh herbs and sprinkle over the cheese and bread.
- Bake for about 20 minutes on 275 degrees. Serve immediately.
