Brie in Bread: Pure Heaven

Happy New Year 2017!  Wishing you a year of health and happiness but first a little brie and French bread!  My friend, Carol, shared this recipe with me and Carol and I made it last night.  She told me folks inhale this gooey, cheesy appetizer the minute it comes out of the oven and we sure did!  What can be better than Brie, bread, butter, sugar and nuts!  I was in heaven and the diet starts tomorrow because there’s a little bit left to eat today!

Here’s the recipe with pictures to guide you.  Heck, make this today while watching football!

1 round of Brie (Costco size, don’t skimp on this)

1 Pillsbury French loaf (found in dairy case near crescent rolls)

1 stick of butter, melted (use the real kind, I used salted)

1 cup light brown sugar

1 handful of nuts (I used walnuts but pecans would be yummy too)

Surround the brie with the bread in a Pyrex pie plate.  Pinch ends of bread together.  No need to take the rind off the brie.  Combine the sugar and melted butter and pour over the brie.  Sprinkle nuts on top.  The picture above is ready to bake.

Place pie plate on a cookie sheet in case the goodness oozes over while baking.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  The picture above is the masterpiece out of the oven.


Ready for the first bite!  Yum!!!!
