Candied Pecan Brie is Another Favorite Baked Brie Appetizer without Pastry
Actually, it is a toss up which of these two baked brie recipes without pasty I like the best. They are both quick to whip up, impressive and a bite of decadence. However, I seem to think more of my Pina Coloda Tropical Baked Brie in the warmer times and the Candied Pecan Brie from KITCHEN 101 cookbook more during the holiday time of year. However, I make both recipes all the time and all year long!
Brie Recipes Appetizers For Different Size Groups
What’s great about making Brie appetizer recipes is you can purchase Brie cheese in different sizes. Honestly, I think I have literally made this simple recipe from a cheese wedge to a huge gigantic wheel for a party. Best of all, just adapt the recipe ingredients to the size of the cheese.
Make Ahead Baked Brie Recipes Appetizers
Sometimes I want to cross an appetizer off my menu to-do list so I make it ahead of time. Try to remember to take the cheese out of the refrigerator to get it to room temperature. You can definitely cut off the rind, split the cheese in half, and drain the pineapple. Also, be sure to toast your pecans and coconut. I usually make extra of the topping because I find myself snacking on it. Then, you can quickly assemble the recipe and pop it in the oven, however, I have even warmed it in the microwave. So, either way to heat it up is fine for your Pina Coloda Tropical Baked Brie. It makes one of the best Brie recipes appetizers and you will see how quickly everyone eats it.
