- Brie: Naturally has a mild, creamy, buttery taste, with a nutty, earthy flavor from the rind.

- Almonds: Sweet and rich in flavor, they pair wonderfully with cheese and fruit.
How to Make Baked Brie with Honey and Almonds
Start by placing your wedge of brie cheese in a square baking dish, you don’t want the dish to be too much bigger than the cheese itself.
Next, cover the brie and surrounding area with sliced almonds.
Then drizzle the whole thing with honey.
Bake at 350 until the cheese is bubbly and has oozed out a bit from the rind, about 8 minutes.
Transfer to a serving platter and enjoy!
Frequently Asked Questions:
What do you serve baked brie with?
I love baked brie on a toasted baguette slice, with fresh fruit, jam, or plain crackers.
Do you eat the white part of brie cheese?
Yes, the rind is totally safe to eat, and adds a delicious earthy flavor to the cheese.
How do I store leftover baked brie?
Wait for the cheese to cool completely, then wrap in plastic wrap and keep in the fridge for up to 5 days. To reheat, just wrap it in tin foil and pop it back in the oven until it’s warmed through.
