This baked brie is simple, elegant, and oh-so-delicious! A quick homemade praline sauce and caramel smother a smooth melty wheel of brie.
Hi. I’m Ashton. And I’m a brie cheese addict.
Yeah. No surprises there, right?
It seems like forever ago, I randomly bought a wedge of brie on an impulse. My husband was out of town, and I was looking forward to a night of chick flicks and indulgent food. Brie looked like it would do the job nicely.
Later that night I stood in my kitchen, brie in hand, and realized that I had NO IDEA how to prepare brie. Rind? No rind? Do you eat it with a spoon? Cut it up and put it on crackers? Take a bite right out of the wedge?
So I put a query out on Instagram, and one of the suggestions was to simply chop it, sprinkle it with brown sugar and pecans, and pop it in the microwave for a quick melt. That night I ate it spread on top of fresh slices of french bread, and it was divine. (You can find a slight variation on that recipe here).
I absolutely fell in love with the flavors of brown sugar and brie cheese. So simple, yet so unbelievably good.
This Pecan Praline Baked Brie may actually be my favorite brie recipe to date. With brie, I believe less is more (and by less, I’m referring to ingredients, NOT the quantity!). The simplicity of this baked brie really allows each flavor to shine, and I just know you are going to love it.
Plus, it’s really very beautiful, isn’t it? Perfect for entertaining… or for a night on the couch with chick flicks :)
I recently discovered Nonni’s Thin Addictives in Cranberry and Pistachio, and they are my new favorite brie accessories! They taste just like super thin pieces of biscotti. But if you can’t get your hands on them, there are a lot of great options for brie dippers such as pie crust, ritz crackers, rolls, french bread, and a spoon… just to name a few!
Don’t miss a bite!
