Just shortly after my husband and I got married and then he got shipped overseas, I started having once a month dinner with my sisters that live in Salt Lake area. My family’s kind of spaced out at the end – I being one of the youngest sibs. So, I felt like I never got to know my sisters very well growing up since I was the annoying and spoiled little sister (I admit it now! It’s true).
So, what does this have to do with Baked Brie, you may ask? Well, at our very first dinner, my sister Janell did this simple recipe for our appetizer and I absolutely loved it! Years later, we are still having our monthly get-togethers and expanded them beyond the sisters only. It’s fun how we’ve been able to get to know each other better over the years and become better friends as adults. I wouldn’t change my family for anything in the world! Love you ladies! (Am I getting too cheesy and gushy yet with all this talk of family love and Brie?)
Top with brown sugar and red grapes cut in half and place is 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes until cheesy is nice and melty. I love serving this with some good quality crackers, such as Breton.
Baked Brie with Brown Sugar and Grapes
- 1 ounces round French Brie approx 13 ; may do less
- 3-4 tablespoons light brown sugar
- 20-25 in small seedless red grapes washed and cut half height-wise
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cut rind off of Brie (all, or at least top and sides). Place in porcelain or glass baking dish.
Sprinkle brown sugar on top.
Arrange grapes over top of brown sugar layer. Sprinkle a little more brown sugar on top to fill in the gaps, if desired.
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until cheese is soft and melty and brown sugar has melted and begun to caramelize.
Serve with crackers.
For leftovers: cover with dish lid or plastic wrap and store in refrigerator. Simply heat back up in oven again to re-soften.
