- 8 ounce round of Président brie
- about 4 fresh thyme sprigs, stems discarded and leaves roughly chopped
- 2 large shallots, quartered
- 1 clove garlic
- about 1/4 cup dried cranberries
- good balsamic vinegar or syrup (for drizzling)
- extra virgin olive oil (for drizzling)
- pinch of salt
- pinch of freshly-ground pepper
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Set an oven-safe grill pan over medium heat and grill the whole brie for three minutes on each side.
Remove from stovetop and sprinkle thyme over the brie. Add shallots and garlic to pan and drizzle with olive oil and balsamic, so that they're well-coated. Add salt and pepper. Now you're ready to bake this deliciousness.
|Grilled and ready to go in the oven!|
Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from the oven and lightly drizzle with some more good, thick balsamic vinegar. Sprinkle the dried cranberries on top. Serve with grilled bread, or thick slices of apple, or—as I did—brioche toasts.
Delicious and beautiful, isn't it? The creamy, charred brie pairs wonderfully with the earthy thyme, the roasted shallots, and the sweet-tart cranberries. This Grilled Baked Brie with Shallots, Cranberries and Balsamic would be a simple and stunning appetizer for a New Year's Eve party. But it's easy enough to make anytime you want to indulge in some cheesy deliciousness.
