Great for entertaining and a fabulous holiday appetizer! If you’ve never tried Brie, you have to give it a try. It’s one of the creamiest cheeses out there with a slight nutty flavor. Sure, you can make a baked brie torte, but this recipe puts a nice twist on traditional baked brie, scales much better (it’s easy to put out some more when you’re running low), and can be served as finger food, no silverware required!


Cranberry-Orange Sauce, recipe found below
1 French baguette
1 wedge of French Brie, any kind


1. Take out the Brie about half an hour before you assemble this appetizer. It’s easiest to cut when it’s at room temperature.

2. Once you’ve made the cranberry-orange sauce, put it on low heat so it stays warm.

3. Cut French baguette into small, round wedges and top with a slice of Brie. Put in the toaster oven until Brie starts to melt and bubbles up a little.

4. Take out the bread and top with a small spoon of cranberry-orange sauce.

For a nice variation, you can also try thinly sliced pieces of red onion on top of the Brie. Serve with chilled wine.
