The only thing. better than Brie cheese is baked brie. Perfectly creamy and melty and served with fresh sliced baguette or fruit. It's the easiest way to get a killer appetizer that people flock toward with bare-minimal effort!
I created a Pomegranate and Thyme Baked Brie appetizer for a great holiday starter. I've always loved how Brie pairs with sparkling wines and the way they both bring out the best and most delicious flavors in each other.
Pomegranates have been popping up all over the grocery store lately and I'm not even sad about it. They have the most fantastic tangy burst when you bite into them. which plays really nicely next to the creamy texture of the brie. Add in some fresh thyme for a bit of herby-spiciness and a sweet drizzle of honey and you have a seriously easy appetizer that feels extra special with very little effort on your part.
Now, in these parts pomegranates are only available in the winter. But this awesome appetizer would also be great with fresh summer berries! I like to spread it on toasted baguette with a light drizzle of olive oil!
