How do you eat your Brie?

Following on from my Camembert thread, I've come back to ask you about Brie grin

Never had it before, I'm slowly trying to expand my cheesiness.
So what do I do with it? Cook with it? Eat it with crackers?
I've bought a wedge of president Brie.

I've also got a small wedge of Camembert to try. But as it's a small wedge, I'm guessing I can't put that in the oven like you would a big round one?

On another cheese related note, I just tried some emmental... 🤢

Leave out of the fridge for at least half an hour before eating, big chunk with crusty bread and an apple and grapes. Yum!

Brie on crackers or toast

You could microwave the small amount of Camembert you have

Yes let it come up to room temperature. It's lovely with crusty bread and chutney. I like the English Provender Company's caramelised red onion chutney.

With tomatoes and salt and pepper on toast or crackers is my favourite.

Or crusty white bread. Yum!

Let it come to room temperature. The warmer and softer the better.

I like it with french bread and white wine .

In the sunshine.

Get a part baked baguette. Put it in for about 5 mins, mean while grill some bacon.
After the 5 mins cut it open and put slices of brie on it and oven for another 3 mins.
Then add the bacon (cranberry sauce if you wish) and enjoy. Absolutely love brie.

Alternatively, cut into wedge chunks, dip in beaten egg, roll in breadcrumbs and deep fry.

Thick slices on a lightly toasted bagel, under the grill until it goes soft, with crispy streaky bacon and a drizzle of sweet chilli sauce!

It's heavenly in a panini with a generous dollop of cranberry sauce, same with a baked potato. Or just naked on gluten free oat crackers.

I love love love the stuff, I buy the Somerset Brie from Waitrose or the Simon Weaver organic cotswold one (local).

Bacon and brie baguette /roll, on a salad, on top of pasta/stirred into pasta basically anything i think it will go with!

With cranberry sauce or raspberry jam on dark toasted bread with rocket

BlackPrism Fri 14-Jun-19 13:43:26

Oh yes or with grapes

theemmadilemma Fri 14-Jun-19 13:48:18

Open fridge, bite, put back. wink

HarryHenderson Fri 14-Jun-19 13:49:51

Ooh, some great ideas here! Let just hope I like the taste..
I've got some crackers and grapes. Might go nuts and get some white wine to go with it

Inhaled 🙈😋

UsernameTaken76 Fri 14-Jun-19 14:20:21

Usually just have it with buttered crackers and grapes. But tonight using it in Jack Monroe’s car-brie-nara. Intrigued to see how it’ll be instead of the usual Parmesan.

ThePhoenixRises Fri 14-Jun-19 14:22:18

Brie and bacon panini's are amazing

WhiteLightTrainWreck Fri 14-Jun-19 14:25:57

Room temp on crusty bread with grapes
Or my favourite
In a toasty with cranberry sauce and. bacon 😍
As for the camembert, microwave works well.
Sorry you don't like emmental, it's lush!

On its own straight from the fridge.

LoafofSellotape Fri 14-Jun-19 16:15:36

Brie and cranberry sauce is amazing!

Stargirl90 Fri 14-Jun-19 19:52:47

In a sandwich (thick white buttered bread) with mango chutney 🤤 SO good

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Fri 14-Jun-19 19:58:14

I like it cold from the fridge, in a baguette with rocket and salted Lurpak. Tiny Santorini tomatoes (under-ripe) on the side and a bag of Kettle Chips salt and vinegar!

I've just been inspired to buy some brie. Mmm.
