After I’d posted this image the other day, Senior Associate Editor Jean Teller of Grit Magazine commented that I need to post the recipe for it.
Jean, it doesn’t get any simpler than this.
All this is, is a classic appetizer called Baked Brie. It’s a round (or wheel) of Brie cheese, wrapped decoratively in a puff pastry dough and baked at 325 degrees F for 20 – 25 minutes until the pastry is a nice and flaky with a golden brown hue. In a video we did last year of Filet Wellingtons, Chef Tad of the Frog Leg Inn took us through the wrapping technique, including the creation of the leafy decorations on the top:
Serve the Baked Brie after letting it sit for a few minutes so the cheese has a bit of a chance to set up before diners cut into it.
Really, that’s all there is to it!
