This Brown Sugar Walnut Baked Brie is the perfect blend of savory and sweet and makes a delicious holiday appetizer! Serve it with fresh bread, apple slices, or crackers for a quick and easy snack that’s sure to please all your holiday guests!
Do you ever have the feeling that you could just live it up with the appetizers and skip the meal, altogether? It’s a feeling I have often….and I’m totally not sad about it. Appetizers are my favorite! To the point where I’ve started suggesting appetizers only nearly every time we go out!
I’m not sure where my love of them comes from, but I’m pretty sure it has something to do with the fact that sharing food always makes it taste better. That….and the fact that appetizers are always all kinds of delicious.
This Brown Sugar Walnut Baked Brie is no exception. It’s sweet and savory and SO easy to make….and you seriously can never go wrong with melted cheese, am I right??
But what I love most about this baked brie is the fact that it’s the perfect starter for so many meals….including Thanksgiving dinner! It’s simple enough that it won’t fill you up, but delicious enough that it’s completely satisfying. Best of all, it’s lightened up with Truvia®, so you get all the satisfaction without all the sugar!
There’s something about the combination of warm, bubbly brie with toasted walnuts and Truvia® Brown Sugar Blend. The walnuts add just the right amount of crunch, and the brown sugar melts right into the brie in the most delicious way. Add in some ginger and fresh rosemary and it’s the perfect blend of savory and sweet. Perfect for Turkey Day or any day! And perfect for sharing with friends.
Do you do a “Friendsgiving” this time of year? We’ve had a long-standing tradition for the past several years of getting together with close friends after Thanksgiving. And even though you might think we’d be full of turkey by that point, the truth is, we make the entire feast! If you’ve never done one, maybe this is the year to start. Or, if nothing else, I hope you’ll join me in a virtual Friendsgiving! I’ve joined together with some blogging friends for a little Turkey Day hop. Stop by and visit The Taylor House for the main course and Cooking with Ruthie for dessert!
