Brûléed Brie ~ this is an easy appetizer for the holiday season ~ you only need a wheel of Brie and some sugar to make this quick and delicious baked Brie.
- an 8-ounce wheel of Brie
- 1 tbsp granulated white sugar
- Preheat oven to 350F
- Put the wheel of Brie in a shallow baking dish that is a little larger in diameter than the cheese. You will be using this as your serving dish, too. Bake the cheese for about 7 minutes or until the cheese is soft to the touch.
- Remove from the oven and sprinkle the top of the cheese evenly with the sugar. Use a kitchen torch to caramelize the sugar. (See tips for using a kitchen torch in the post above.)
- Let cool for a minute or two, to let the caramelized layer harden. Serve the Brie right away with crackers or a fresh baguette.
