Description

Peaches, bacon, basil, and brie get married and the world is better for it. This one is fast and easy, and I promise you will not be able to stop eating it. It’s the perfect appetizer, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t eat it for dinner on more than one occasion. Let me know if you try it- leave me a comment or tag me on Instagram. I want to see what you make!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 3 slices of bacon, cooked
  • 2 peaches, diced (1/2 inch dice)
  • 3 Tablespoons red onion, diced
  • 2 Tablespoons peach jam
  • 12 Tablespoons basil
  • Balsamic reduction (to taste)
  • 13 oz double cream brie – don’t use triple cream- it turns into a festering mess

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350.
  2. Place the brie on a piece of parchment on a baking pan. (Don’t remove the rind)
  3. Using 1 Tablespoon of jam, spread a think layer on top of the brie
  4. Mix the peaches, bacon, and onion together.
  5. Add about a tablespoon of jam, just enough to hold the ingredients together and stir.
  6. Top the brie with the peach mixture.
  7. Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes.
  8. Sprinkle basil on top. Drizzle some balsamic reduction over the it all.
  9. Serve with crackers, crostini, or just eat it with a spoon.

Notes

  • Triple cream brie doesn’t do well with toppings and heat, so don’t spend a fortune on brie for this one. Just get a good double cream.
  • Ripe peaches are the best. If the peaches are still firm, the peach flavor gets lost.
