Cheese makes the world go round. You can add it to any dish to instantly improve it and it works in breakfast, lunch, dinner and even dessert. But, with so many options, it’s hard to know where to start when selecting the right cheese for your recipe. You can go classic with cheddar, mozzarella, swiss or American, but why not get a bit fancier? Branch out and embrace something a bit more European – a bit more French, to be exact. That’s right, we’re talking about brie.
Brie is one of the creamier cheeses you’ll encounter. It’s made from cow’s milk and is named after the French region from which it supposedly originated. While it’s often just spread on crackers (or, more fittingly, baguettes), many times brie is served slightly melted and/or baked in a ceramic dish. People will often sprinkle nuts or fruit on brie and dig in for a delicious treat, but we encourage a little more creativity here at We Got Food Covered, so we’ve compiled 30 scrumptious baked brie recipes for your cheesy tasting pleasure.
Some are sweet, some are savory and some are even spicy, combining the likes of strawberry and jalapeño. Seeing as bacon makes everything better, we’ve tossed in some meatier recipes as well that pair bacon with things like caramelized onions, basil, peach, balsamic and blueberry. Of course, we also had to mix in some boozy choices like baked brie with wine soaked blackberries and one that comes cooked in a bourbon brown sugar glaze.
If you’ve never tried brie, now’s the time to introduce your tastebuds to this delicious French treat. Trust us, don’t hesitate a moment longer. Try one of these 30 recipes (or all of them) and let us know which ones you enjoyed best in the comments section down below.
