Honey and almond baked brie
This honey and almond baked brie is a cheese lover’s dream! Using locally sourced 1839 Manuka honey to sweeten the deal, wow your friends and family with these delicious yet easy starter.
- 1x round sourdough loaf
- 200g round brie
- 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
- ½ sliced almonds
- ¼ cup 1839 manuka honey
- Preheat your oven to 190 degrees celsius fan bake. Slice the top off the sourdough, then hollow out a circle large enough for the brie to sit within. Carve the bread into a cubed pattern, ensuring not to cut entirely through the loaf.
- Sit the brie inside the bread loaf, then break small sprigs of rosemary off the stalk and press into the brie. Place into the oven with the remaining bread chunks and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the bread is golden and the brie is soft to the touch.
- While the brie is baking, bring a saucepan to a medium heat. Add the sliced almonds, and toast for 1-2 minutes or until golden. Pour the honey into the pot, and stir while cooking for a further minute or until the honey has caramelised.
- Spoon the honey almonds over the baked brie, and serve immediately with the toasted bread chunks for dipping.
