I've fixed this for two holiday parties this week and it was a huge hit. Unfortunately I could not find ginger preserves in my area so bought low sugar orange marmalade and added 1/2 tsp ground ginger to the mix. I really do not like altering someone's popular recipe, I feel I miss out! But until I find ginger preserves, the alteration was certainly acceptable to our foodie crowd. The 2nd time I made it I used the microwave to soften the brie and it worked great, about 1 minute at 70% and that was with 1000 watt micro. Just keep and eye on it.
Warm Brie With Ginger-Citrus Glaze
If you are serving bread with this warm cheese, place slices on the same baking sheet with the Brie. They will toast while the cheese cooks.

Bake: 9 Minutes
- 1 (8-oz.) Brie round
- 1/4 cup ginger preserves*
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons orange zest
- 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
- Assorted crackers, fresh fruit
- 1. Preheat oven to 400°. Trim and discard rind from top of Brie. Place Brie on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until cheese is just melted.
- 2. Meanwhile, microwave ginger preserves and next 6 ingredients in a small microwave-safe glass bowl at HIGH 30 seconds; stir until blended and smooth. Microwave at HIGH 1 minute. Let stand while cheese bakes.
- 3. Transfer Brie to a serving dish; drizzle warm glaze immediately over Brie. Serve with assorted crackers and fresh fruit.
- *1/4 cup fig preserves maybe substituted.
- Note: For testing purposes only, we used Dundee Ginger Preserve.
- Party Tip: Place the Brie directly on an oven-safe serving plate, and bake as directed. The hot plate will keep the cheese warm and gooey longer.
