Baked Brie With Bacon & Cranberry

November 22, 2013

After my adventure last week making bite sized appetizers with brie, bacon and cranberry sauce I spotted a recipe on Squidoo which featured a puff pastry parcel  along with brie and all sorts of other delicious things inside.

It got me thinking about how the possibilities for stuffing a brie are pretty much endless, but I wanted to eliminate the puff pastry because I like to spread my cheese goo on oat cakes. Then I remembered that I had received a brie baker for Christmas last year from a friend which up to that very moment I had no idea what to do with.

So using the same basic idea as before but without any pastry I made a big pot of brie-tastic snack goo and we decided that it was pretty freaking wonderful so we’re going to be making it again to have along with our calorific Christmas festivities.

If you are intrigued by the idea of a brie baker and want to know where you can get your  hands on one just search for it on amazon and you’ll find dozens of options. I was a bit worried about how the cheese would stick to the inside but as it turns out, it’s really not an issue at all.

Ingredients: 

Brie (that will fit your brie baker)

Streaky Bacon

Cranberry sauce

Oat cakes (or whatever you prefer to put the goo on)

Method: 

1. Cut the Brie evenly in half horizontally so that you have two even pieces to make a goo sandwich with.

2. Layer the pot by placing one half of the Brie rind side down.
