Melty Baked Brie with Walnuts, Honey and Figs

Appetizers, Fall, Quick and Easy, Thanksgiving

I feel like baked brie is kinda basic bitch-ish. It’s not all that revelatory. It’s nothing new. But I feel like this version–while not groundbreaking–is SO good.

This thing also gets more points because it’s really easy to throw together. It takes like five minutes to assemble and like ten minutes to bake. It also doesn’t require a lot of ingredients.

And the payoff is HUGE! The soft walnuts and crunchy pistachios with the warm figs are delicious. The thyme adds a nice aroma and the honey adds some nice sweetness.

This appetizer isn’t super sweet, so if you’re in the mood for more sweetness, toss the figs in a teaspoon of brown sugar.

I served this whole thang with Bubs + Grandma bread, which is a local Los Angeles bread maker. If you live in LA, you can get it often times at farmer’s markets or at Cookbook (in Echo Park). But if not, then this would be delicious with any good bread or crackers.

Are you feeling fall vibes?! It’s been so hot lately but I’m super excited for fall to arrive.

I’m headed to Seattle today and it’s supposed to be in the 60s and I’m super pumped for cooler temperatures! YAY! Happy Weekend! xo

    A friend dropped off a bag of figs from her tree, so I am totally trying this! My oldest daughter does a similar appetizer that we all love, but she cuts off the top covering of the brie… I guess that isn’t necessary? (Two of my kids live in Echo Park, too…you probably pass each other the aisles at Lassen’s Market…or walk past each other at the park!)

      You don’t really need to cut off the brie but a lot of people don’t love the casing so it’s up to you!

      That’s so funny! We probably do, I go to Lassen’s all the time! Haha.

    Gorgeous. I’m so ready for fall! I don’t like plain honey on brie – I prefer savory, or a mixture of the two. When the topping doesn’t require any browning, I’ve had good luck with warming the brie in the microwave, but you have to know and trust your microwave. You have to have those power setting or else you will just have cooked cheese!

    Haha, baked brie might be a little “basic,” but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t crazy-delicious. I love the idea of topping it with figs, walnuts, and pistachios — I bet it tastes as good as it looks! I’m curious, if you don’t mind me asking: where did you find those plates? They’re gorgeous!

    As a cheese lover, I’m definitely trying this next time I buy a brie! Great recipe and blog!

    My kids are not interested in eating vegetables they just want fast food, now I decide to put something spicy at home. I follow your recipes.

    Do we really need that many photos of the completed dish? It’s bad enough we have to wait for all the ads and videos to load, those huge photos of the exect same thing is ridiculous. One photo of the completed dish, and a few of preparation should suffice.
