This appetizer of warm, melty baked brie served with roasted vegetables and candied garlic will make a great addition to your next holiday party!
I’m starting to think the Fall is a huge lie. We’re all enamored with the idea that the air is crisp and just cool enough to need a light jacket, and that the changing leaves are beautiful. Well, the leaves may be beautiful, but they’re already on the ground. Plus now that we turned the clocks back and its pitch black by 5pm, I can’t see them anyway. And light jackets aren’t nearly warm enough – I’ve already broken out my warm coats. And gloves. I’m not exaggerating when I say I saw snow flurries last weekend.
We may still have a month of “Fall” left but, if you ask me, it’s winter. Time for soup and stew. Roasts. Hot cocoa. And cheese.
Especially when said cheese is a warm, melty baked brie served with piles of roasted vegetables and candied garlic cloves. This one never even made it to the table – I sat right down in front of my little photography desk and dug right in. Yum!
Since I ditched the traditional puff pastry (who needs it?), I served this with Walker’s Oatcakes, which are soft crackers made form oatmeal. I love the way their earthy flavors pairs with the slightly sweet items like the candied garlic and red peppers. If you can’t find the oatcakes (I received them as a free sample), any mild whole grain cracker would be delicious.
