Grilled Brie-4Grilled Brie is the easiest appetizer recipe to make! It is just what you are thinking, it’s brie that is heated on a grill pan and then served with jam on top. Warm melty brie is just so much better than cold brie, and it takes less than 10 minutes to prepare. It’s a great way to elevate your next cheese plate, and impress your dinner guests.

You can serve your grilled brie with any jam you like. I chose a fig jam and loved the flavor pairing of brie and figs, it’s rich and elegant. If you want something a bit fruitier, you could use raspberry jam, or if you want something with a kick of spice you could use red pepper jelly.

I served the grilled brie with fresh slices of French Bread. The bread is sturdy enough to hold up to having the cheese spread on it – crackers would be likely to break apart.

It is really important that you use a fresh wheel of brie. You need brie that is 100% covered in rind. Otherwise, the cheese will ooze out into a mess when you grill it. Since this appetizer only takes a few minutes to prepare, and I recommend doing it as soon as guests arrive so that the brie is hot.

  • A Wheel of Brie

  1. Heat a grill pan (or a skillet) over medium heat. Add a drizzle of olive oil, and add the brie. Grill the brie for 2-3 minutes, until grill marks appear. Then rotate the brie 90 degrees to create criss crossing grill marks.
  2. Flip the brie and repeat the process to grill the other side of the brie.
  3. Serve the brie with jam on top and sliced French bread on the side.
