Today’s Simple Holiday Survival Recipe is for Mini Baked Brie Bites. I love baked brie, and this is such a simple recipe, I think I could make it every day! Enjoy!
Mini Baked Brie Bites
- 7 oz. Imported French Brie Cheese Round
- Two Packages Frozen Mini Fillo Shells (30 total shells)
- One Jar Cranberry Relish
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Take fillo shells out of packaging and place frozen shells onto baking sheet (I cover baking sheet with tin foil to make for easy clean up!). Cut the brie round into bite sized pieces(see “Notes On Brie” below). You can get 30 pieces from one 7 oz. brie round. Place a piece of brie into each fillo shell. Bake filled shells for 5-8 minutes, until cheese is melted but not browned.
Remove from oven; place a dollop of cranberry relish on top of each filled, baked shell. Place on serving platter and serve warm.
Notes On Brie:
- The brie round will come out of the packaging with a white rind on it. This rind is edible; you can choose to keep the rind on, or you can remove it. Just make sure before you cut it that the cheese is cold — it makes for easier cutting.
- You can actually FREEZE brie! This comes in handy for this recipe – Freeze the piece of brie for about 30 mins., and then you can cut it into small pieces easily. Package those small pieces in a baggie for future use! Great to prep your appetizer the day or week before you serve, or just to have handy when company drops by! I recommend you freeze brie only when you plan to cook it — it alters the texture slightly, so I would not serve it on a cheese platter!
