ISO ideas for Brie

I was given a 10" wheel of Brie cheese a few weeks ago. I need to come up with some ideas to use this stuff before it goes bad on me.

I'm thinking I may have to get some puff pastry and cut off a section and do a Brie en Croute. That, I'm familiar with.

Robo, on another thread, mentioned cutting the cheese open, spreading some pesto on the cheese, putting it back together, and baking it.

I've got a Brie Soup recipe that I've never tried. I may have to give that a spin.

Any other ideas?

Editted to add: I goofed. It's a one-kilo (2.2 lbs), 8" wheel. Imported from France.

I did the pesto thing in puff pastry for Christmas. Very yummy!
Not that there's anything wrong with that.....

roll a hunk of brie in toasted ground almonds, bake just until it starts to melt, then place atop a pool of warmed raspberry preserves. serve with extra thin kavli style crackers, or thin slices of semolina bread.
The next time someone asks what you did this past weekend, squint really hard and say, "Why, what did you hear?"

Love the Brie en Croute! I use it often in omelettes. I also like to make a sauce with it to serve with a vegetable souffle. Enjoy!
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

Roast a head of garlic, warm some brie and serve with crackers. Mmmmmm.

I used a bunch as the stuffing for stuffed chicken breasts. Had some brie and black forest ham that needed to get used up. It was yummy.

Croissant, cut in half. Lay on sliced apples, lettuce, sprouts, walnuts, brie on top and quickly heat under a broiler to melt the brie. Wow, what a great sandwich!!

cut into fingers, wrap in phylo, freeze, then deep fry. Best cheese sticks ever, pair with raspberry/strawberry.
