Baked Brie Appetizer with Pecans Candied Topping -Best Baked Brie Recipe

baked brie pecans makes best baked Brie appetizer

Baked Brie Pecans Candied Topping is a KITCHEN 101 recipe!

Baked Brie pecans and brown sugar topping make the best baked Brie appetizer.  My Candied Pecan Brie is one of those quick baked Brie recipes.  Whenever I have company coming over and there’s no time to cook, this one of my go to recipes. With few ingredients and minimal preparation, I can whip up this show-stopper recipe up at last minute. My cookbook KITCHEN 101 (my easiest cookbook) has MENUS and this is from the Fancy Food Menu, but the recipes are still simple, just maybe a tad fancier.  If you can get to a Costco or Sam’s Wholesale Club, you can find a Brie for the best price.  However, I pick up the small rounds all the time at the grocery and sometimes have just used a big wedge. Any size makes a delicious baked Brie Pecans recipe.

Serving Suggestions with Baked Brie Appetizer

I usually serve the Brie cheese with gingersnaps or plain water cracker as you don’t want too much of a savory cracker. Use a cracker that complements it.  I also love to garnish my baked Brie pecans with red and green grapes as the colored grapes complete the platter making this a showpiece recipe.  One time I made a miniature loaf of cranberry bread and cut into pieces and toasted in the oven – divine with the Brie!
