a cheesy memory

I have a secret: I am not a big cheese person.

Gasp, I know.  According to many, cheese is one of the most beloved food groups.  These people will also profusely argue that cheese is indeed a food group.

While my preferred form of cheese consumption is definitely pizza, I also quite enjoy brie.  However, I had never tried baked brie until a friend introduced me to her family’s celebrated recipe.

Boy, was it good.

Baked brie

Baked Brie with Kahlua and Almonds

  • 1 wheel of brie
  • Dark brown sugar, to taste
  • Sliced almonds, to taste
  • Kahlua

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place wheel of brie in oven-proof dish.

Sprinkle brown sugar and sliced almonds liberally on brie.  You will not regret too much of either ingredient.

Pour Kahlua over brie until the wheel is thoroughly coated.

Bake until the topping is bubbly, about 8 to 10 minutes.
