Sweet and Savory Baked Brie

Sweet and Savory Baked Brie is a very simple holiday appetizer that is a big crowd pleaser and it looks absolutely gorgeous on any holiday table. I guarantee you this appetizer will disappear in front of your eyes.

I love baked brie. I love puff pastry, I love pomegranates and I love brie. So this dish is utter perfection.

I make this holiday favorite every year, but I made this for a holiday party this past week and it was a huge hit! Everyone was asking for the recipe so I had to post this one.

I made this with my Pomegranate and Rosemary Cranberry Sauce which gives it a nice sweet and savory twist. Feel free to use any leftover cranberry sauce you have lying around after Thanksgiving. This is a good excuse to use up what you got. As if you needed an excuse.

  • For the brie wheel, you don’t trim the outside of it? That thick white part that circles the cheese? Doesn’t that have a bitter taste? I ask because we’ve been trimming that part every time we ate brie because we felt it was inedible lol

    • It’s all about preference, the rind on brie is just mold and you can eat it. Just with any aged cheese, you’re going to get mold. The brie cheese itself melts completely during the cooking process so the rind just stays whole and you can eat around it easily. Don’t be scared of the rind though, it may be bitter but it is edible.
