about every 6 months i go through a phase where all i crave is brie and i can’t get enough of it, which usually leads me to go to costco or sam’s club to buy brie in bulk. i love brie when it gets all warm and gooey and bubbly. mixing it with something sweet and i am in heaven. for meatless monday i made a spicy apricot glaze out of apricot jam and tons of cayenne pepper, that was topped on a wedge of brie. along with it was toasted slices of homemade multi-grain baguette and a green leaf salad. i must say it will be hard to top this.
1 small wheel of brie or a large size wedge
1 jar of apricot preserves
2 Tbsp cayenne pepper
1 clove garlic — minced
1. preheat the oven at 35o, coat a baking dish with non-stick spray. place brie into baking dish.
2. in a bowl combine the apricot preserves, cayenne pepper and minced garlic, poor apricot mixture over the brie.
3. cover dish, bake brie for 30-35 minutes or until the brie begins to melt. serve with toasted bread slices.
