Savory Baked Brie with Crispy Mushrooms.
Not all baked bries are sweet y’all. If you’ve never had a savory baked brie you’re in for a treat. This one is SENSATIONAL, if I do say so myself. I’ve made it no less than 4 times already this week. That should give you some idea of how obsessed I am with this recipe. I think it’s the perfect holiday appetizer for anything from Thanksgiving to New Years Eve or who am I kidding, just because you want some melty cheese goodness topped with a smattering of crispy mushrooms for lunch, brunch, dinner or snack time. Research people, the things I do for y’all.
Did I mention it’s ridiculously easy? It is. The most important thing you’ll want to remember it to take your brie wheel out about 30 minutes prior to bake time. This let’s it come to room temperature. While that’s sitting out doing it’s thing, you can make the mushroom topping. Guess what? You could even make the mushroom topping the day before and just heat it through again. I KNOW. It doesn’t get much easier for entertaining or eating.
I’ve also made this using both fresh and dried thyme instead of rosemary and loved it as well, so if you fancy something different than rosemary by all means go herb crazy and change things up.
Now besides eating this with just a spoon (research people and yes I’ve done just that) I like to serve this with toasted baguette slices, because bread. Who doesn’t love cheese and carbs. If you’re abstaining from carbs (it happens and I’m sorry) it’s also great with sliced salami. Obsessed. Or back to the spoon, totally acceptable, at least in my house.
Ready to make one, two or three and invite me over? It would be rude not to you know.
