Whenever I am hosting a party, especially during the holidays, I look for easy recipes that take little time, yet have the wow factor.  This baked brie recipe is one of those aces up my sleeve.  It takes me 5 minutes to put it together, the oven does the rest of the work, and when I take it out, it draws everyone to it.  It’s a great conversation starter too!

Great Prep-Ahead Appetizer Recipe

Hosting a party should never be stressful, and to achieve that I plan my menu with recipes where the prep or part of the cooking can be done ahead of time.  This recipe fits the bill perfectly.

I prep the brie in puff pastry and refrigerate it 3-4 hours ahead of the party, or a day ahead.  Meanwhile, I prepare the serving platter with fruit and crackers.  Then, about 40 minutes before my guests are expected to arrive, I bake it in a pre-heated oven for about 30 mins.  I take it out, and set it up with my prepared platter with crackers and fruit. That simple!

Baked Brie Cheese Variations

In this recipe, I make baked brie with cranberry sauce.  I always make a few extra jars of cranberry sauce when they are in season.  I fill up a few mason jars, and either can them, or store them in the freezer.  They come in real handy for cheese platters, and of course, baked brie!

This recipe for Baked Brie is pretty versatile, so you can use your favorite kind of fruit spread instead of cranberry sauce.  Some other popular flavors in my home include fig jam, strawberry preserves, mixed berry jam, caramelized onions, and believe it or not, my homemade apple-pie filling 🙂  You get the idea!

Vegetarian Substitute for Egg Wash

This recipe uses 3 essential ingredients that are vegetarian, Puff Pastry, Cranberry Sauce and Brie Cheese.

Once I assemble the brie wheel in puff pastry sheet, I brush the puff pastry with egg wash to get a golden brown crispy shell.

If you want to skip the egg and want to make this 100% vegetarian, you can melt 1 tbsp butter + 2 tsp milk and brush the pastry with that.

  • Rest the brie wheel for 5-10 minutes before slicing.  If you want a more lava-like cheese texture, then 5 minutes should be enough.  But for a firmer texture, wait 10 minutes.
