Maria’s Recipes: Baked Brie

*Small wheel of Brie cheese, size of your choice eg. 125g or 250gm

*Fresh garlic clove x 1, thinly cut into slices

*Dried Thyme x 1 small pinch, depending on size of brie

*White wine x 1 or 2 tablespoon’s

*Chili Jam x 1 or 2 teaspoon’s (alternatively drizzle over honey or sweet chili sauce)

*Boiling water from a freshly boiled kettle x 1 cup


-Preheat oven to 190 degrees Celsius

-Line an oven proof bowl (the size of a cereal bowl) with baking paper and put wheel of brie cheese in the center.

-Put garlic slices in a heat-proof bowl and pour over some boiling water.  Let garlic soak for about a minute, then drain water.  This removes some of the sharp, acridity.

-With a sharp knife, cut some cris-crosses into the brie.

-Insert 4 or 5 slices of garlic into the cuts, spreading them out evenly.

-Sprinkle over thyme and try and get some into the incisions.

-Sprinkle white wine over brie and then with a spoon spread over chili jam or sweet chili sauce or honey.

-Loosely cover brie bowl with tin foil and bake for approximately 15 minutes, until it’s melted.

-Eat while still hot/warm, with a charcuterie board or plank with various meats/cheeses, fruit and crackers or alternatively treat the baked brie like dip and serve with torn pieces of sourdough bread, crackers and/or veggie crudités.
