BBQ Baked Brie
This BBQ Baked Brie is the simplest of recipes with only TWO ingredients. It’s perfect for when you need a quick and simple, but insanely delicious, appetizer. And for when you want to eat something that feels like summer even when it’s cold outside. Who doesn’t want that??? This post is sponsored by Stubb’s BBQ sauce.
I often do this thing where I take a small wheel of Brie and put some fresh raspberries on it, and then bake it. That’s all it is. Raspberries, Brie, heat. It’s sooooo good. One day I thought I had raspberries at home (because I did have raspberries at home) and I bought a bit of Brie to go with them. Then I got home and someone had eaten the raspberries. Ugh!
I decided to try something else. I had a bottle of BBQ sauce in the fridge. And, I’d been thinking of grilling the Brie. It all made sense. And omg, was it ever good!!!
Since then I have done the same thing a ton of times. I’ve found that it is easier to do the Brie in the oven though, so the instructions below are for baking the Brie. If you’d like to grill it instead, here are instructions for grilling Brie.
Put the wheel of Brie on a pan and then poke it with a fork all over the top. This is going to let the BBQ sauce really get down into the cheese.
Add the BBQ sauce to the wheel of Brie.
Spread it around. Let it drip over the sides in spots.
Now, that goes into a 350F oven for just 10-12 minutes. You want it soft and bulging at the edges, but not so bulging that it splits open and the cheese oozes out.
But don’t worry if it does split. You’re fine. If it just split a little bit, go ahead and use two egg lifters to transfer it to your serving plate. As soon as people started digging into the brie it was going to be split open and spill cheese everywhere anyhow. The alternative is to use a pie plate right from the beginning. In fact, I sometimes bake my brie in a pie plate in case it does split. Then I serve it right in there knowing that no cheese is going to go leaking out too far.
I hope you love this baked Brie recipe. It’s one of my favorite simple recipes!
