How to Bake Brie
Baking brie might sound intimidating, but it is so so easy! Only two ingredients and an easy way to bake it. Just follow the simple steps below to get started.
- Cut brie and add honey. Slice the brie in half. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the brie rind on it. Then drizzle the honey on top.
- Bake and serve! Bake in oven at 350°F for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the cheese starts to melt out. Enjoy with French baguettes or crackers.
Modifications + Toppings
What I love about baked brie is that there are so many different pairings that taste delicious! Try it with fruit-filled jam, add nuts on the side or on top, and even make it into a dessert by using a puff pastry. Enjoy these fun and delicious ways to change your baked brie every time you make it!
- Jam or jelly. If you don’t have honey on hand or would prefer a different topping, try using fig jam, apricot jam, strawberry jam, or raspberry preserves. You can even use spicy pepper jelly.
- Nuts. For an extra crunch, try topping it with pecans or walnuts. You can either top the brie with fresh pecans once it’s out of the oven or you can even bake the pecans so that they get crispy as well. If baking, I would mix the pecans with a little brown sugar and butter…it makes them taste super yummy.
- Dessert. If you’re looking to turn this recipe into more of a dessert, try topping it with Nutella or chocolate and strawberries. Both make a delicious sweet and savory combination.
- Puff pastry. If you really want to wow the crowd, try wrapping the brie in a puff pastry. I like this recipe, but you can also buy a premade baked brie puff pastry at the store. Cranberry brie bites in puff pastry are another great option!
- Larger crowd. If you’re serving a larger crowd, you can easily use a whole brie rind to make this recipe. Just double the amount of honey used.
Serving Baked Brie
Have fun with this easy-baked brie recipe! Create a charcuterie board with it or serve it in a baking dish with all your favorite sliced bread and crackers. Present this baked brie fancy or low-key but still make it look delicious and beautiful all at the same time.
- Fruit: Add grapes, sliced peaches, apple slices, and fresh strawberries. Even dried fruit like raisins or craisins look pretty and are edible.
- Veggies: Try it with cut-up celery or long-sliced carrots are the perfect presentation and color to this delicious baked brie recipe.
- Grains: Sliced artisan bread and delicious wheat and whole-grain crackers are perfect for spreading creamy baked brie over top.
- Serving platter: Use a small baking dish to serve and drizzle the honey and nuts over top. Place the baked brie on a cutting board filled with fruit, veggies, and sliced bread.
- Garnish: Top with fresh rosemary or thyme laid right on top of the baked brie and honey.
You don’t have to! I usually don’t because it’s just one extra step. If you leave the rind on, the brie will ooze out of the sides and you can use a knife to spread it on the French baguette slices or crackers.
If you’d like to remove the rind, simply scrape it off of the top before adding the cheese to the baking sheet. Just know that without the rind, it will likely spread more because there’s nothing holding it together.
This can be two things. If you left the rind of the cheese on, the baked brie may seem like it is rubbery once heated, or the brie was overcooked by leaving it in the oven too long. To avoid the rubbery texture, remove the rind of the cheese and make sure to not overbake the brie in the oven.
Once the baked brie begins to ooze out but not melt, your baked brie is ready to take out of the oven. Depending on the size of the brie wheel, it usually takes about 5 to 7 minutes.
