Everyone is busy getting their turkeys stuffed and their potatoes mashed, but do you have any delicious appetizers planned? Why not try Baked Brie over an open fire? When heated, brie becomes somewhat like fondue, the gooey inside is warm and delicious and tastes good on just about anything! These two variations of baked brie are perfect for the holidays.
Peach, Tarragon, & White Wine Provisions:
Small cast iron pan
1 Brie rounds, wrapping removed
2 Peaches, thinly sliced
5 Sprigs of tarragon
¼ cup Dry white wine
¼ cup Walnuts
1/8 cup Honey
Peach, Tarragon & White Wine Method:
With a fork, poke the brie several times and place it in the middle of your cast iron pan. Pour the white wine over the top and let soak in for a minute. Place the tarragon springs around the edges. Layer the top with peach slices and walnuts, and drizzle with honey. Place on the grill and cook for 20-30 min. The brie is done when the sides start bulging and the brie is somewhat soft to the touch.
Caramelized Onion & Bacon Provisions:
Small cast iron pan
1 Brie round, wrappings removed
1 Onion, finely sliced
1 Pack of bacon, diced
1 Tbs Butter
1 Tbs Olive oil
1 Tbs Honey
Caramelized Onion & Bacon Method:
Add butter and olive oil to the pan, and place on the grill. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add the sliced onion and cook until the onion starts to become translucent – approximately 5-7 min. Add the honey and let it cook until the onion is a beautiful golden brown color. Remove from grill and set aside in a bowl. Place pan back on the grill and add the diced bacon. Cook until crispy, then remove from heat and place in a small bowl. Add the brie round to the pan and place it back on the grill. Cook over your Smoke Less fire pit for 10-15 min on one side and then turn it over to cook the other side. It should be a beautiful golden brown color when turned over. When the sides start bulging, remove from the grill and top with onions and bacon bits before serving.
We served both of these with freshly baked bread and a variety of fruit, but you can do crackers, baguettes, or really whatever you like with it!
