We don’t know anyone who doesn’t appreciate a round of melty brie cheese smothered in fragrant mushrooms! Paula from Bell’alimento shows us how to pull together this crowd favorite.
If you’re looking for the perfect appetizer for your Thanksgiving feast (or any holiday party for that matter) look no further. This savory baked brie topped with crispy mushrooms served over toasted baguette slices is just what you’re looking for. It’s unexpected and amazing. Even better? It’s super simple to pull together.
You’ll want to be sure to take the brie out of the refrigerator and set it on the counter about 30 minutes BEFORE you’re ready to bake it. Then you’ll simply saute sliced portabella mushrooms with a mixture of butter, onions, garlic and herbs until they’re brown and crispy. Nothing bad about that combo right?
All that’s left is to pop the brie into the oven and bake it until it begins to soften enough so that once you top it with it’s brown tiara of crispy mushrooms it will ooze out onto the platter when you cut into it. You can even toast the baguette at the same time you’re baking the brie! Happy Entertaining!
