Hi I have a wedge of Brie Cheese, left over from Christmas. On Christmas I baked in crescent rolls with jelly and brown sugar on top. What a disaster, a mess and really it didn't take that great.
Is there anything else I can do with this cheese?
Thanks for the help
Go to allrecipes.com and type in brie cheese....Several came up.
Brie should always be served at room temperature. Let the cheese stand covered (best left in its wrapper) for at least 30 minutes to one hour prior to serving. If serving a whole wheel, slice it in wedges like a cake. It pairs beautifully with the tart taste of dried cherries, cranberries, apricots, or raisins. Brie also complements toasted nuts, such as walnuts, pistachios, almonds, and cashews. Scatter a wheel of Brie with a colorful assortment of dried fruits and nuts for color and flavor. Try Brie slices for a tasty twist in cheeseburgers, or melted on croutons for use in soups and salads. Brie also works well in sandwiches, such as with sliced apples and smoked turkey on pumpernickel or with roast pork and shredded cabbage on a crusty roll. Brie pairs with a wide assortment of wines, from champagne to hearty reds, and beer and cider as well.
Here are a couple sites loaded with Brie recipes.
I split mine - spread apricot or raspbery filling on it - put it back together and wrap it in puff pastry and bake it at 400º until golden. We didn't a crumb left!
Here are my two faves. Both should be done with a wheel, but I'm sure you can do it with a wedge. Just watch the baking time so the cheese doesn't run all over. Generally when you bake a wheel, the eatable rind keeps the cheese from running.
#1 Cut brie in half horizontally, mix together 1/4 c apricot preserves and 1 chopped jalapeno. Spread half of filling on bottom half of brie, sprinkle with 1/4 c pecan halves. Top with other half of brie and rest of filling. Sprinkle with another 1/4 c pecan halves. Bake at 425 for about 5 mins.
#2 Exact same recipe, but substitute 2/3 cup sun-dried tomatoes in oil (chopped) for preserves, 1 tablespoon basil pesto for jalapeno and pine nuts for the pecans.
I usually slice up a baguette, brush with olive oil and surround the brie wheel so they bake at the same time and get nice and crispy.

you could make filo dough purses, use a little chunk, put some walnuts and well, something else........... I'm not a cheese person, but I"ve always wanted to make something with the filo dough.

Math is fun!
sorry a little late, when you don't get e mail notifications I forgot I put in a request
If you put the preserves - apricot - raspberry - fig, etc. - sprinkle some thinly slices almonds over the preserves - fantastic!
My friend uses it in her lasagna and boy was it tasty. made it very rich and creamy. Or I would even try it in mac and cheese.
I am actually having brie this weekend on a cracker topped with cranberry chutney.
