Sweet Pecan Dijon Baked Brie
The Christmas season is upon us! Tomorrow is December 1st, and I am sure you already have a calendar full of get-togethers and holiday parties planned. If you need to bring an appetizer to said get-togethers or parties, look no further. This baked brie is sure to please everyone in attendance!
Brie is pretty close to the top on my list of favourite foods. Seriously. This is how much I love it: before my son was born, I made Clarey promise that she would bring me a baguette and a wheel of brie at the hospital on the day of his birth! I avoided eating it raw throughout the pregnancy just to be safe (although I did partake in this delicious recipe more than once). I sat in the hospital bed and ate a good chunk of that wheel of brie and a good chunk of that baguette, and I was pretty convinced it was the best thing I had ever eaten.
I have made this recipe numerous times, and I ALWAYS get compliments on it. The dijon mustard takes it past your typical brown sugar baked brie adding a slight spiciness, and the pecans add a nice texture change. It is best served with sliced baguette in my opinion, but crackers work too. Enough blabbing…just trust me and make it for your next get together.
