i discovered a new appetizer

Husband and I had a similar dish using fried goat cheese at a tapas restaurant a few months ago. Over New Year's, I saw a recipe in a book using brie and combined the two to make a really good dish.
To Make:
Take a beautiful round of Brie or Camembert cheese,
Cut slits in the top and drizzle with olive oil,

and top with minced fresh garlic
(Use minced, not chopped like I did here. It doesn't roast fast enough.)

sprinkle with fresh rosemary,

place in a baking dish and heat at 400 for 10-15 minutes,

remove, place on a pretty plate, scrape majority of chopped ingredients from the top,
and drizzle with honey

and garnish with toasted almond slivers.

Serve with garlic-flavored table crackers and red grapes.


  1. That looks absolutely amazing....even at the crack of dawn! :)

  2. When I saw this, my first thought was how good it would be this weekend. But I think it would be even better mid-week! Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Looks so beautiful....will have to try it soon...
    and I love the old books on your it !

    More later,

  4. It's good to hear everyone likes these ole' books. I thought they were good forJanuary although I have considered going back to the plain-jane look I had before Christmas :)

  5. This is a very very good recipe...I have been eating a lot of this recently actually... :) The honey is a splendid touch - it goes so well with cheese!!!!

  6. Yummy!!!!! Keep these great ideas comin', SL! : ) (and I love the old books too! : ) )

  7. Trying this recipe out with my Monday night neighborhood potluck group! Thanks!
