Question Brie

I'm trying to think of all the different things you can do with brie, what are your ideas? I have had three so far and all of them are for baked brie.

1. Baked brie with puff pastry and sauteed mushrooms
2. Baked brie with puff pastry and baked apples with walnuts
3. baked brie with puff pastry and cranberries (a friend told me they had brie and cranberries before)

All really good ideas! I love brie. Srsly. But I haven't thought outside the box with it really. When we make baguette sandwich we spread it on the bread and add salami, tomato and maybe lettuce or basil.

Again a baked brie, Cut off top after preheating broiler Put brie in baking dish. Sprinkle top with1 cup chopped toasted pecans, then cover top and sides patting gently with 2 cups of brown sugar. Broil on lowest level til sugar bubbles and melts about 3-4 min. Serve immediately with your favorite cracker.

In this case shortbread would be my favorite cracker! YUM!

Definitely start thinking of it as a "sandwich cheese", even when not quite ripe. Back in NY, there was a local food shop that made a terrific sandwich using sliced still-firm Brie combined with oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, arugula, & sliced smoked turkey on a crusty roll. Delicious!

Yum, That sounds really good! So does the baked brie with pecans and brown sugar!

I love brie, I have always had it baked without any topping except puff pastry and a couple weeks ago I had it for the first time just plain and unbaked. I still liked it a lot, so now I have been trying to think of what else to do with it.

Now you see - & this is just personal opinion - although I ADORE salami (all types), for me salami would just overpower the Brie. I've only liked Brie for poultry-based sandwiches. The somewhat "mushroomy" taste of Brie just seems to complement poultry perfectly.

But again - just personal preference.
