Home Cheese how to
For a totally new kind of cheese sandwich, trying making stuffed Brie. It's a simple delight that looks and tastes great and can easily be made to suit any craving or occasion.
Ile de France Brie makes it easy to put together wonderfully sweet, tart and tangy flavors that are beautifully offset by the cheese's rich creaminess. Whether you're looking for an easy-to-make appetizer everyone will love or a fresh snack to savor while relaxing on the couch, stuffed Brie is the perfect choice.
Making stuffed Brie is as easy as 1, 2, 3! Just take a small wheel of chilled Brie and cut it the long way through the center. Then spread your filling of choice on the bottom layer and combine with the other section – just like a sandwich. When finished, serve it at room temperature along with bread, crackers, sliced fruits and vegetables.
With a dish this simple, the ingredients must shine. Ile de France Brie is deliciously creamy and smooth, making anything sweet an excellent choice for filling. Favorites include cranberries, a deliciously tangy companion for the downy cheese. Cranberry sauce or fresh, sweetened cranberries both work well. Add some chopped pecans, almonds or walnuts for a delightful dash of crunch. If cranberries aren't available, any fruit preserves work splendidly.
Sweet fillings are delightful with Ile de France Brie but savory fillings create delicious combinations, too. Try thinly sliced smoked salmon mixed with fresh minced herbs like basil, dill, thyme or oregano to create a wildly flavorful mix of tastes and textures.
