Roasted garlic is an extremely versatile ingredient, and it can be used in a TON of recipes. It is super healthy and just makes whatever you put it on a little bit better.
(hint- roasted garlic on pizza… TO DIE FOR.)
You need to know how to make roasted garlic, like right now. So I put together this super handy “how to” guide for you. It is SO easy, like probably the easiest “recipe” you’ll ever follow.
The roasted garlic that I teach you how to make in that guide, is not your typical roasted garlic.
The traditional way of roasting garlic is using the whole head of garlic, unpeeled, and roasting it in the oven.
I use a method that uses full, peeled cloves of garlic and just topping them with a couple essentials and wrapping them up. Much cleaner, easier, and still the same wonderful taste!
Making the Brie
First things first, preheat the oven to 350°F.
Unwrap the wheel of brie cheese and stand it on its side. Using a serrated knife cut off the rind on one side of the brie.
Place the brie in an oven safe dish that is just slightly larger than the brie wheel, a small cast iron pan works well for this.
Place brie cut side up in the dish and set aside.
Now, spread the roasted garlic over the top of the brie (and try to resist just eating it by the spoonful).
On top of the roasted garlic place the diced sun-dried tomatoes, and then sprinkle the dried thyme on top of it all.
Bake the brie for 25-30 minutes until it is completely melted and bubbling. Serve immediately.
Serve with crackers, sliced baguette, or tortilla chips, for dipping.
This appetizer can be made in advance!
Making this super awesome for those holiday meals that take the whole day to make. You can just prepare the brie ahead of time and have it hidden away in your fridge.
So, to prepare this ahead of time, follow the recipe up to step 4.
Then instead of baking the brie, wrap it tightly with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for up to two days.
When you’re ready to serve it, follow the baking instructions as directed.
Optional alternative baking methold (No oven required)
I get it, I know the oven is a sacred place for holiday meals and oven space is often limited.
If that sounds like the situation you find yourself in, then do I have news for you…
IT CAN BE MICROWAVED!!!
After all, all you’re really trying to do is get the brie cheese to fully melt.
Make sure the brie is in an oven safe dish, then microwave on high for increments of 4-5 minutes. Keep an eye on it and when it is almost ready, decrease the increments to one minute.
As soon as it is hot and bubbly, it is ready to serve!
Re-heating the brie.
The brie can be easily reheated in the oven (or microwave). Check it every 5-10 minutes (in the oven) and every 3-4 minutes (in the microwave) until it is heated through.
