This isn’t your typical baked Brie recipe!! While I love a baked Brie wrapped in crescent rolls or puff pastry with jam or honey, this recipe is even easier to make and only requires two ingredients. It comes together in under 10 minutes making it the perfect appetizer for last minute guests. The Brie is topped with turbinado sugar and then is either torched or broiled until the sugar has caramelized – using the same method one might use on creme brûlée.
I love a sweet and savory combination so the smooth creamy soft-ripened cheese with it’s buttery flavor makes the perfect contrast to the caramelized sugar. Make sure you pick a Brie that comes in a wood box – this helps the Brie keep its shape when cooked. If you can’t find one that comes with a box then broil it in a shallow baking dish.
Preheat the oven to broil on high. Trim the top bit off the brie to open it up and expose the cheese.
Broil on high until the cheese is slightly gooey.
Sprinkle the cheese over the top.
Either torch the top of the Brie with a kitchen torch or return it to the oven on broil until the sugar caramelizes.
Serve and enjoy!
I am a big fan of the kitchen torch – for one, I love making creme brûlée and torched desserts like brûlée peaches, baked Alaska or meringue pie. It also comes in handy when I am styling food to get a slight char on something or melt an ingredient just right. I’d recommend this Kitchen torch from Amazon. I’ve tried a few and this one has some good power behind it. Just make sure you’re working on a non-flammable surface when using it.
