Baked Brie Pecans Candied Topping -My Simple Craving  For My Baked Brie

Baked Brie pecans and brown sugar topping make the best baked Brie appetizer.  My Candied Pecan Brie is one of those quick baked Brie recipes.  Whenever I have company coming over and there’s no time to cook, this one of my go to recipes. With few ingredients and minimal preparation, I can whip up this show-stopper recipe up at last minute. I admit I get a craving for this Baked Brie recipe and this is what I do for my hubby and me. I pick up a Brie wedge at the grocery and prepare it in the microwave.  Quick and satisfying! It makes a fun appetizer for us with a glass of wine.

KITCHEN 101 Makes The Perfect Cookbook for the Busy Person-You’ll Love The Menus

My cookbook KITCHEN 101 (my easiest cookbook) has MENUS and this baked Brie recipe is from the Fancy Food Menu, but the recipes are still simple, just maybe a tad fancier. My other go-to appetizer in this cookbook is my Mediterranean Layered Dip which is in the Sports Spread Menu

If you can get to a Costco or Sam’s Wholesale Club, you can find a Brie for the best price. However, I pick up the small rounds all the time at the grocery and sometimes have just used a big wedge. Any size makes a delicious baked Brie Pecans recipe and you can adapt the ingredients.

How To Serve My Baked Brie Appetizer

I usually serve the baked Brie cheese with gingersnaps or plain water cracker as you don’t want too much of a savory cracker. Use a cracker that complements it.  I also love to garnish my baked Brie pecans with red and green grapes as the colored grapes complete the platter making this a showpiece recipe.  One time I made a miniature loaf of cranberry bread and cut into pieces and toasted in the oven – divine with the Brie!
