Yield: Feeds 6 people

Ingredients:

  • 1 ea Boule Bread (round bread)
  • 1 ea 8oz wheel of Brie Cheese

  • 4 oz Mixed Nuts (Chopped)

Method: 

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cut a whole in the top of the Bread as to make a bowl out of the bread.
  3. Cut mold off of cheese. (It is good mold! You can eat it! But, most people don’t know this, so I usually remove it)
  4. Place Cheese in the middle of the bread and cover with fruit preserve and chopped nuts.

  6. Remove when cheese is runny and bread crispy.
