Who Doesn’t Love Brie? Especially When Baked, Warm, And Oozing

Brie is the perfect cheese for parties and get-togethers. Since it’s relatively mild (unlike Camembert), even the cheese-averse can enjoy its soft and creamy texture, and its fruity, nutty flavor. And it’s great as an appetizer or as a dessert cheese. While baked Brie is usually made as a sweet dish with honey and nuts, Chef Nancy decided on a more savory style with sun-dried tomatoes and basil. The best part about baking the Brie is slicing it open and letting its soft, creamy inside ooze out.
