I wasn't sure which type of brie to use for this recipe so I went with one of "medium" softness. This was okay but I should have used the "soft" brie because it solidified quickly and we kept having to pop it in the microwave to soften again. The flavor was good so we will have it again but with the softer cheese. Read More

Great flavor! A huge hit with my guests. I used green onion instead of white and cut down on the olive oil a bit. Very good! Read More

Excellent - I've made bruschetta many times but the bruschetta mixture combined with the warm brie was delicious. I had 14 people over last night with this and other appetizers and this was the favorite. Will be making again! Read More

Excellent attractive appetizer! I loved that all the work could be done ahead of time and then it could just be "zapped" before serving. I added extra basil and will cut back on the onion next time I make it (probably just personal preference or a very strong onion but the onion flavor was overpowering). Also I added a dose of Celtic Sea Salt to bring out the flavors. Read More
