Baked Brie with Apricot Jam.
Guys. My all time favorite appetizer is this right here.
Or with any other “jam” I have on hand. I have used mango preserves, apple butter, orange jelly… anything that has that sort of consistency, is fruity and sweet. The perfect combo to go with my brie. This is seriously so delicious. It’s an appetizer that my mom used to make only on Thanksgiving or Christmas Eve, but as the years went by, we started making it for other parties, switching up the jam and brie combinations (hello, guava preserves!). I cannot wait for parties, though. This is just too good.
Brie is typically pretty expensive, but since starting to do my groceries at Aldi (why did it take me so long to start doing that?!) I have found a package of brie for only $3. Dangerously inexpensive for someone who loves brie as much as I do.
For parties, I usually wrap the whole brie in a puff pastry stuffed with the jelly (as detailed in the recipe below). But, I have found that there is an even simpler way to make it at home for an any day snack. By the way, this is not the recipe I am sharing below, but I know you’re going to want to make this often. I guess you could say there are two recipes in this post. You can thank me later.
For a simple version: Toss a few pieces of brie into a small baking dish or ramekin. Top with a couple of tablespoons of your favorite jam. Bake for a few minutes until cheese has melted. Serve with water crackers.
Yep, that’s it. That’s the perfect afternoon snack you’ve been looking for all this time.
Simple, easy, 3 ingredient brie and jelly (or jam or butter or preserves) goodness in a little cute ramekin.
Bonus points if it’s a red ramekin. ♥
Anyway, below I’m going to give you the “party version” of this appetizer aka the big, shareable version (I mean, you don’t haaaave to share it…). With just 3 ingredients, it is just a small easy as the simple version! It just takes a little longer to bake. Easy peasy.
If you make this recipe, be sure to tag me on Instagram or hashtag #toeatdrinkandbemarried. I want to see it!
