Quick, simple party appetizer for two or twenty!
Ingredients
  • 1 wedge or wheel of Brie
  • 1 round loaf of bread (Italian, French or sourdough recommended – whole wheat is no good)
  • 1 jar fruit preserves (your choice, try one of your favorites - we recommend fig or raspberry)
  • 1 "Himalayan Saltware™ Salt Block"
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 325 F.
  2. 'Cap' loaf of bread by slicing the top off. (see photo below)
  3. Core loaf so that Brie wedge or wheel will fit inside loaf but top of Brie is not above top of loaf.
  4. Spread fruit preserves over top of Brie.
  5. Cut cap and core into bite size pieces and allow them to toast in the oven with the Brie loaf.
  6. Place Brie loaf on Saltware™ and place in oven for 20-25 minutes or until Brie has fully warmed and become melted and gooey.
  7. Remove Saltware™ from oven and make vertical slices down the side of the loaf approximately 1” apart all the way around the loaf. This allows bread to be easily torn off once the initial pieces are gone. (see photo top of page)
  8. Serve bite sized bread pieces that were toasted on the side.
  9. Bread pieces can either be dipped into the Brie and preserves or you can serve with a butter knife.
