Learn how to make the best baked brie appetizer in this easy cast iron skillet recipe. The heat and sweet of hot pepper jam tastes delicious over creamy brie cheese.
One of my go-to simple appetizers is crackers and cheese. Since taking French in high school, I fell in love with Brie. I’m pretty sure I’d be happy eating it every day. The creamy texture pairs perfectly with crackers.
The only thing that makes the brie and crackers combination better is hot pepper jam or jelly. Yep, you heard that right. Spicy fruit spread is the best.
While I normally slice up the brie to eat cold on the crackers with a dollop of hot pepper jam, I like to mix it up sometimes. On those days, I make baked brie in a cast iron skillet.
Baked brie might sound intimidating but it’s one of the easiest snacks or appetizers you can prepare! All you need is creamy brie, tasty spicy jam and crackers and you’re set to make this simple skillet appetizer.
How to Make Baked Brie with Jam
- 8 ounces brie cheese - (one large wheel)
- 16 ounces hot pepper jam
- 1 box gluten free crackers
- Small cast iron skillet
- Place your wheel of brie into a small cast iron pan. I like to use a pan rather than a serving platter because it’s easy to reheat if the brie gets too cold.
- Bake the brie at 375 degrees F for about 15 minutes or until the brie is all melty inside the coating.
- Pour the entire jar of sweet and spicy jam over the top of the baked brie.
- Cut the brie open so the cheese oozes out and melds with the jam.
- Serve with gluten free crackers.
