Brie makes a great appetizer for any occasion. This is probably one of the simplest brie recipes that I’ve made and it only has four ingredients. It made a nice starter before Thanksgiving dinner.

Directions:

  1. Cut the top of the rind off the brie cheese and place in a round flat oven-safe dish
  2. Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees
  3. Pre-heat a frying pan at low heat
  4. Add two teaspoons of brown sugar to the frying pan and allow the brown sugar to melt/caramelize
  5. Add the pecans to the frying pan and stir frequently with a wooden spoon to roast them for about 2-3 minutes
  6. Remove pecans from pan after they have been candied with the brown sugar and spread them on a flat plate or platter to cool
  7. Add the red pepper jelly (aka hot pepper jelly)  on top of the brie cheese until it is covered with a layer of jelly (approximately 1/3 of the jar)
  8. Add the pecan pieces to the top of the jam
  9. Bake for approximately 15-20 minutes or until the centre of the brie is warm
  10. Let the brie cool for approximately 5 minutes before serving.
  11. Serve with crackers (sweet potato artisan crackers and organic artisan crisps made with cranberry, cashew and black quinoa made a good complement with the brie) or baguette bread

This brie appetizer is a crowd pleaser and for a cheese lover, it will make your stomach smile.
