Baked Brie with Pomegranates

This baked brie recipe is a fantastic holiday appetizer. It’s not only delicious but also easy to make. Picture this: gooey brie on a crispy baguette with honey, fruit, and nuts. It looks amazing too, with festive red, white, and green colors. Plus, it only takes 10 minutes to prepare, making it perfect for Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Year’s parties. Actually, it’s so tasty that you’ll want to enjoy it at gatherings throughout the entire winter!

My Simple Baked Brie Recipe

When I’ve had baked brie before, it was usually wrapped in puff pastry. But as I played around with this recipe, I realized I liked the cheese better without it. Skipping the pastry makes the recipe much easier – no need to mess with rolling dough and wrapping up the cheese. Just put the brie from the fridge into the oven! (Important: The brie should be cold; otherwise, it will melt instead of softening while baking.)

Without the puff pastry, you can have fun with festive toppings! I like using seasonal produce, and in this case, fresh pomegranate seeds are a perfect choice. They not only look great but also add a sweet and tart crunch to the creamy cheese. I top it all off with toasted pistachios, rosemary, honey, and sea salt to enhance the flavors. Tip: Try to get a bit of everything in each bite!

Ideas for Serving Baked Brie

Serve the baked brie warm for the best taste. Use parchment paper for easy transfer from the oven to a serving platter. Top the brie with a mix of pomegranate seeds, honey, pistachios, rosemary, and sea salt for a delicious and festive look with sweet, tart, crunchy, and aromatic flavors.

Feel free to customize the toppings. You can try different seasonal fruits or jams, like cherry or cranberry sauce, and swap pistachios for toasted walnuts or pecans. Experiment with herbs too, such as using thyme leaves instead of rosemary.
