How to make Baked Brie
Baking brie is super quick and simple to make!
All you need to do is place the brie wheel in a suitable ovenproof dish lined with baking paper, drizzle on some honey (totally optional) and bake for 10-15 minutes!
Any longer and the melted brie runs the risk of bursting through the rind… which isn’t too much of an issue if you’re making brie for your lunch.
If however, you’re making this baked brie for a party table or shared entree then you’ll want to watch the brie carefully to make sure it doesn’t cook too long and burst.
You’ll know if the brie is about to burst as the rind slowly becomes transparent.
Do You Take The Rind Off Brie Before Baking?
You do not need to remove any part of the rind before baking brie.
The rind is perfect for holding in all that melted cheese lava… and is delicious too!
Baked Brie Tips
What type of brie is best for baking?
You can use any brie for baking! This makes it a really great budget party pleaser! Just make sure the brie is a wheel rather than a slice as you need the rind to hold in the melted cheese.
How long does baked brie stay melted for?
The brie will be like lava for approximately 15 minutes after baking.
Can I use baked brie leftovers?
Yes! however, there probably won’t be any *wink *wink.
Use the leftovers on toast, reheated in the oven or microwave, serve on crackers, or even add to an impromptu charcuterie board
How to reheat baked brie?
You can either reheat in the oven until suitably melted or pop into a microwave for a few seconds!
How do you eat baked brie cheese?
There are so many ways to eat baked brie cheese. You can use crostini to scoop up the cheese, smear the molten cheese on bread or toast or use it as the perfect cheese dip for fruits such as apples, pears, and berries.
My favorite way to eat baked brie is with homemade crostini slices with some grapes and apples on the side!

- Unwrap the brie from all its packaging and place onto some baking parchment and place in a small ovenproof dish. Drizzle with approximately 1-2 tablespoons of honey.
- Bake in a 350°F (180°C) preheated oven for 10-15 minutes. watch the brie very carefully at 10 minutes to ensure the molten cheese doesn't burst through the rind. You can tell that rind is about to burst as it gradually becomes more transparent the more it cooks.
