How to roast garlic, the easy way!
Roasted garlic is an extremely versatile ingredient, and it can be used in a TON of recipes. It is super healthy and it always makes whatever you put it in, or on, just a little bit better.
PSST, try putting roasted garlic cloves on pizza, it will probably change your life. I did on this camenbert, fig and roasted garlic pizza and it changed my life.
Anyways, back to the roasted garlic. You need to know how to make roasted garlic, it is one of the most important skills that any chef learn. Luckily for you, I put together this super handy “how to” roast garlic guide for you!
First things first, you need to preheat your 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 perfectly for this.
Place brie cut side up in the baking dish or pan.
Spread the roasted garlic paste over the top of the brie. Then on top of the roasted garlic place the diced sun-dried tomatoes, and sprinkle the dried thyme on top of it all.
Bake the brie for 25-30 minutes until it is completely melted and bubbling. Serve with crackers, sliced baguette, tortilla chips, or even fruit!
Hint: Using a cast iron pan to heat the brie in is ideal because they can hold heat for so long, reducing the possibility of having to reheat the brie.
This baked brie appetizer can be prepared up to two days in advance!
It is fantastic for those holiday meals that take the whole day to make. You can prepare the brie ahead of time and have it hidden away in the back of your fridge, and then when guests arrive, throw it into the oven and in no time you will have a delicious appetizer!
To prepare this ahead of time, follow the recipe up to step #3. 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.
Alternative baking method (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 accomplish is getting the brie cheese to melt.
Make sure the brie is in a microwave safe dish (cast iron is NOT microwave safe), then microwave on high for increments of 2-3 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 baked brie.
The brie can be easily reheated in the oven (or microwave, if it is in a microwave safe dish). Check it every 5-10 minutes (in the oven) and every 1-2 minutes (in the microwave) until it is heated through.
