meatless monday — spicy apricot brie

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.

now that is what i'm talking about



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.
