The intended use of the Honey Brie is for an appetizer, but I could eat this for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
The best way to prepare this dish is to buy a pre wrapped Brie in puff pastry at Trader Joe’s, and then make the sauce. But if you would like to make the Brie from scratch, here’s the recipe:
1 sheet of puff pastry (thawed)
Brie (small round)
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon of water
Roll out pastry dough until it is large enough to wrap the brie. Thin pastry is flakier, so 15×15 is a good size. Place piece of brie on dough & wrap dough around it. Seal edges & cut off excess. Using a fork, press on the seams making sure they are sealed well. Mix together egg & water in small bowl. Brush the dough with egg wash to make it crispy and brown. Place dough on cookie sheet, seam side up.
Bake @ 350 for 20-30 minutes, or remove when golden brown.
These are the essentials:
1 stick of butter
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
½ cup of honey
½ cup of chopped walnuts
¼ cup chopped parsley (optional)
Melt butter in small saucepan, add chopped cloves of garlic, ½ cup of honey, walnuts. Mix over low heat, keep warm while brie cooks, and then smother with sauce once brie is done. Serve warm.
P.S.—YOU NEED FRENCH BREAD WITH THIS MEAL FOR DIPPING! The honey sauce is really good on the bread, and the brie mixes very well with bread as well!
