When sitting down to plan a dinner menu, you may be asking yourself what to serve with baked Brie. I have collected 15 luxurious baked Brie recipes for your consideration.
Brie cheese, named after the French region where it originated, is off-white, mild-flavored, and perhaps the best meltable cheese in the world.
I mean, you know it has to be good when it is cut into and it flows like lava out onto the plate!
Being neutral, it pairs easily with many different flavors and textures!
It is wonderful in appetizers, sandwiches, entrees, or desserts!
When baking, the four to five-inch size, less expensive Baby Brie wheels are great.
I only splurge on the triangular cuts of Brie from the larger wheels when I am using it on a cheese board where it is the center of attention.
When baking Brie I highly recommend placing it on parchment paper for ease in moving it around and in the cleanup process.
Can you warm it in the microwave? Sure.
Will it heat evenly that way?
Probably not, but it can be done.
My first choice is always to bake Brie in the oven.
A rule many hold is to give the wheel an hour to come to room temperature and then bake for 10 to 20 minutes at 350 degrees in the oven.
So the last question to answer is how do you know when Brie is done baking?
Press on the top of it and it should feel soft.
The white rind can be cut off the top or left on as it is edible and helps hold the shape.
What do you serve with baked Brie?
When considering toppings as an appetizer, they can be sweet with jams and nuts or savory with veggies and butter.
It can also be used in breakfast dishes or on sandwiches or desserts as well.
The last note is that baked Brie should be served as soon as it comes out of the oven so it does not have time to harden up.
Some simply have toppings added while others are wrapped in puff pastry like the Baked Brie In Puff Pastry With Cranberries, crescent rolls like the Cinnamon Apple Brie Crescent Rolls, or phyllo dough like the Baked Brie In Phyllo Dough.
Any one of these recipes should light up your table and impress your family or guests!
Sometimes it is tempting to go crazy with lots of toppings when deciding what to serve with baked brie, but sometimes simple and savory is just as delightful.
This recipe has a different presentation by cutting the Brie round in half, making two full circles of Brie, and removing the rind.
This purposefully allows the cheese to melt into the French bread slices.
Then the bread and Brie are coated in olive oil, salt, pepper, thyme, sage, rosemary, and basil.
Bake until cheese bubbles and bread browns a bit.
What do you serve with baked Brie?
How about a touch of elegance with cranberries and pecans!
The Brie is baked with only brown sugar on top.
Once it is warm and softened a lovely maple honey drizzle is added and poured over the baked Brie.
The drizzle has brown sugar, honey, maple syrup, butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, orange zest, pecans, and dried cranberries.
3. Baked Brie
Another fantastic way to create a lovely appetizer is to combine a puff pastry with baked Brie.
The puff pastry needs thawing, then wrapping around the Brie wheel that is topped with pure maple syrup, toasted pecans, cinnamon, and brown sugar.
A good explanation is given on how to wrap the dough over the Brie using an egg wash and brush.
It bakes a bit longer than the wheel by itself.
Serve with crackers, crostini, apple and pear slices, grapes, nuts, or seeds.
This recipe for baked Brie combines a sweet jam with crunchy nuts and fresh herbs for delightful appetizer bites.
The Brie wheel is placed on a parchment-lined baking sheet with a crosshatch pattern made across the top if you like.
Fig jam is spread across the top of the wheel with pistachios and thyme sprinkled on as well.
Bake and serve with French baguette slices or crackers.
If savory is the flavor for what to serve with baked brie, this recipe will delight you!
Score the top of the wheel with half-inch cuts.
Pour onto the combination of melted butter, garlic, thyme, and pepper.
That’s it but it is very different from other recipes that lean towards the sweeter side of things.
This is decidedly savory and can be served with bread, nuts, or fruit.
Simple and crowd-pleasing!
Here is a lovely baked Brie recipe for breakfast!
It starts in a skillet with butter, onions, and mushrooms sauteed until all liquid is gone.
Add garlic, thyme, and broth till it all simmers nicely.
Next, the cream is added to thicken as Brie, parmesan, fresh spinach, salt, and pepper are added.
Last, make little holes in the sauce where four eggs are added.
Transfer to the oven and bake!
Serve with seasoned bread.
A puff pastry with baked Brie is the base of this recipe for an easy and delightful appetizer.
The pastry puff is rolled into an eleven-inch square with the Brie placed in the center topped with honey and almonds.
Then the corners are folded in one at a time, brushed with egg wash as you work your way around.
Bake for a bit, then add more honey and almonds on top and bake some more.
For a change of pace, this baked Brie is beautifully wrapped in phyllo dough for a different texture that is lighter and flakier than a puff pastry.
A bit of time is invested to wrap the Brie wheel with six sheets of dough, brushing each one with melted butter before wrapping.
The jam or preserves of your choice, like peach, strawberry, or apricot, is spooned on the top of the Brie before the last layer of phyllo dough is added to hold it all together.
Serve with crackers.
This recipe takes baked Brie on a little tangent.
Sliced and then melted tangent, to be exact.
These finger-friendly sliders made with dinner rolls have avocado aioli, salmon, Brie, bacon, lettuce, and tomato!
And boy do they have taste extraordinaire!
The Aioli is blended with egg yolks, lemon juice, olive oil, avocado, salt, and pepper!
The salmon is cut to the right size for the rolls and then baked.
After that, the assembly can begin.
The Brie melts beautifully after being placed on top of the warm salmon.
These will be remembered!
The presentation in this baked Brie is eye-catching!
Finding a round loaf of bread that is big enough to fit the Brie wheel is where this recipe begins!
Using the wheel as a pattern, cut out the center of the bread to remove it so the cheese can fit inside.
Cut the outside of the bread, not all the way through, into one-inch chunks.
Score the cheese with criss-cross cuts and bake until the cheese is soft and bread toasted.
Garnish with fresh thyme.
11. Baked Brie Bites
This puff pastry with baked brie makes lovely finger-friendly bites!
Ingredients needed are Brie cheese, puff pastry, salami, apricot jam, and fresh thyme.
A mini muffin tin is also needed and put to good use!
So, thaw the puff pastry and freeze the cheese.
Cut the puff pastry into squares and place one in each muffin tin, pressing down to form a little bowl.
Add salami to each followed by a piece of Brie cheese, a dollop of jam, and fresh thyme.
Bake and enjoy these delicious bites.
If you were wondering if a Brie baker was a real thing, the answer is yes.
Do you need one? Probably not.
Are they cute? Sure.
In this recipe, baked Brie is cooked in a Brie baker with the top rind cut off and pepper jelly added.
Here it is instructed to only add the cover after the baking is complete to keep the cheese warm while allowing steam to be released.
Serve with thin pretzel thins or pita chips!
On Italian night, this recipe is absolutely the perfect answer to “what do you serve with baked Brie?”
The answer is bruschetta-baked Brie.
Roma tomatoes, fresh basil, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, and salt make a tantalizing and savory topping for Brie!
The Brie wheel is baked by itself, then the bruschetta topping is added just before serving with toasted baguettes, crackers, or veggies.
For a slight sweetness, cranberries are an excellent choice for what to serve with baked brie!
The puff pastry is rolled out, and the Brie wheel is placed in the center.
It is topped with a delightfully simmered combination of dried cranberries, dried cherries, water, orange zest, and vanilla.
Then the corners are folded in as it is wrapped up.
Bake and serve with grapes, pear, apples, crackers, or bread!
My last entry on this list of what to serve with baked Brie is a lovely sandwich creation with crescent rolls.
The Brie is still being baked, it’s just being baked inside the individual crescent rolls.
Inside each triangle crescent, place a slice of cheese, a slice of apple, and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
Roll up and place on a baking pan lined with parchment paper.
Repeat till all are made and then bake.
The bottom line
