Dip into the luscious melted cheese with trans fat–free 100 percent whole-grain or wheat crackers.
1 (8-ounce) round Brie cheese
2 tablespoons dried cranberries
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
1 teaspoon chopped walnuts, toasted
40 low-sodium 100 percent whole-wheat crackers (such as Triscuit)
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350°.
Using a serrated knife, remove topmost rind from cheese; discard rind. Place cheese, cut side up, in a small ovenproof baking dish; sprinkle with cranberries and thyme. Top evenly with nuts. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes or until cheese is soft and warm. Serve immediately with crackers.
This recipe was excellent! I followed the recipe, but I used dried thyme
instead of fresh and baked it for about 20 minutes. While I was
preparing the main dish, my three guests devoured the whole thing in
about 20 minutes. If you have more than four guests, I would make two
This was a nice, easy and tasty appetizer. Next time I'd bake it a little longer take the rind off the sides too. I substituted pecans for the walnuts. Delicious with both chardonnay and pinot noir, so great for parties.
This is the simplest and tastiest "go to dish". I bring it to all my holiday events and it is usually gone before dinner even starts! I do add a bit more cranberries and walnuts to the top- since that is what people usually go for! But overall the favors meld together beautifully and people can never get enough!
