I can’t believe it took me so long to try this simple but sinful dish for myself. Ooey gooey cheese? What’s not to love?
It did seem a bit decadent for one person’s lunch, but I had just been watching a documentary on French cheesemaking and the host tucked into a little melty wheel of brie with some bread and a side salad and I just about broke all land speed records to get to the store and make one for my very own.
No, I did not share.
While I have no fancy French wooden boxes with which to house my oven-bound cheese, I did have a ramekin that worked just as well.
Next time though, I’m going to try a cranberry-macadamia concoction on the top and baked. Join me?Print
An appetiser favourite!
- 250g brie
- 1 clove garlic
- fig jam
- bread and sliced apples, to serve.
- Place the (unwrapped) brie into an oven-safe ramekin
- Poke small holes in the top of the cheese with the point of a sharp knife and add a sliver of garlic to each one.
- Cover with foil and bake at 200C for 20 minutes.
Feel free to change up the flavours – I also love honey and fresh thyme.
