Baked Brie With Thyme and Garlic

image

This isn’t really a recipe, it’s too simple for that but boy, it’s tasty!

Served with a few crunchy vegetables, fresh bread and gluten free crackers this is a treat and makes a lovely light lunch to share!

I don’t always use garlic as it can overpower a really good cheese but it’s up to your personal choice, the boys love it either way and it’s a great way to get them eating raw vegetables.

Ingredients

a small wheel of Brie, 200-250g

a few sprigs of thyme

1 clove of garlic, very finely sliced

Method

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Centigrade.

Make small incisions into the top of the Brie.

Gently push a few thyme leaves through and a slice of garlic.

Wrap in baking parchment with the pierced top uppermost.

Wrap in foil, again with the top uppermost.

Place directly on the oven shelf.

Bake for 15mins.

Very carefully, remove the foil. Open the baking parchment, trim any excess paper and place on your serving dish.

Serve with carrot sticks, capsicum strips, apple slices, cucumber sticks, figs, really anything you like eating with cheese.
