Baked Brie is often wrapped in pastry before baking (Brie en croute) – but it works perfectly well without the pastry too! Just place it in a baking dish and bake it in the oven until it is super soft in the center. An 8oz (250g) wheel of Brie takes 12-15 minutes in a 375F oven. I often cook it on a piece of parchment paper for easy transferring.
You can test when it’s done by gently pushing your finger down on the center of the Brie – if it feels super squidgy then it’s probably ready! Just transfer it to a serving dish, cut it open, and watch all that delicious ooey gooey cheese tumble out!Baked Brie #lowcarb Click To Tweet
Brie pairs well with fruits such as berries, pears, apples and apricots, herbs such as thyme and rosemary and many other ingredients including tomatoes, olives, mushrooms and pistachios! I happen to really enjoy just eating it plain with some flaxseed crackers. Although high in fat, the Brie doesn’t contain any carbs, so this is an indulgent lunch that my husband and I will share – and it is completely carb-free!
