Brie

Anyone got a good brie recipe...I have a block of it...I love it by itself, and not with anything sweet...but since my dad bought it for me as a gift, and I have a bit more than I'm used to I thought about using some of it in a recipe too...

Sorry TheLemonSong I'm not sure what the brie is...but I searched. I found that it is a kind of cheese. And I found this recipe, maybe it helps to you ...


Bit of Brie
(serves 12)

One 14 oz round of Brie
1 TBL. butter
1 cup finely chopped pecans, toasted
1/3 cup Kahlua
1/4 cup packed brown sugar


Remove top rind of the Brie. Place on a microwave safe platter.

Heat the butter in a saucepan until melted. Add the pecans and mix well. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in the Kahlua and brown sugar.

Spoon the pecan mixture over the Brie, spreading to the edge. Microwave on high 1 minute; turn the platter. Microwave on High for 45 seconds longer or until bubbly.

Serve with melba toast round or French bread slices.

Here's a recipe I posted a while back which uses roquefort - you could use cubed Brie and just add a sprinkling of provencal style herbs...?

Tomatoes with French cheese and pine nuts

Halve 6 large tomatoes (we have a wonderful variety called Jack Hawkins... truly taste like tomatoes USED to taste!) and place cut side up in a shallow, oiled baking dish. Add plenty of ground black pepper. Crumble about 100g Roquefort into small pieces and scatter over. Mix 3 tbsp fresh breadcrumbs and 25g pine kernels. Moisten with 1 tbsp olive oil and sprinkle over the tomatoes. Bake in a preheated oven at 190C, gas mark 5, for 20-25 minutes.


Great with garlic bread and/or a green salad.

Hi,

I also love brie. All I do is put it on the BBQ, grill it until hot and then serve it with a large mixed salad with dressing, sounds boring but it quick and easy and tasty.

This is where I have trouble...I don't want something sweet, because I'd rather eat the brie by itself, I don't have a grill, and honestly I don't know how a substitution for roquefort would be...I've heard of brie chicken,b ut its generally done on whole chickens, and I just don't have that kind of cash, that much brie, or enough people to eat it with me (i have no friends, just moved to a new area 8 hours from my home)...

I know lots of standards, (i.e. garlic bread w/ brie, brie w/ fruit, etc.) but I was hoping for something along the lines of a pasta or meat dish...perhaps I'll have to create my own.

I'm planning to either purchase some buffalo or some lamb this weekend (farmers market), maybe I could stuff one of those and do a pan-sear and bake...

With a sprinkling of Herbes de Provence, Brie would be an acceptable alternative for my recipe (in my opinion!).

Lamb and French cheese sounds odd to me, unless you do a Greek-style dish, using the Brie in place of Halloumi ?

Oh man, there is a recipe on here for Brie Stuffed Chicken breasts that is to die for. Mish posted it. I don't have much time, but I will search for the link later for you.

You will think I have lost my mind (actually...there is much evidence to support such a theory) But I have used Brie in my Macaroni and cheese recipe.

I take chicken breats that have been pounded flat
and roll some brie up in them. Wrap with bacon and then
brown on top of the stove in butter and olive oil. Continue
baking in oven until done. YUMMMMMY! Other cheeses can be
used as well. Sometimes I add onions and or mushrooms to the roll.
