If you are looking for a show-stopping appetizer that only takes minutes to make, this Baked Brie Recipe with Sun-Dried Tomatoes is your answer! Melty cheese is topped with a mixture of sun-dried tomatoes, garlic and parsley in this addictive starter.
Well, I warned you all that I was going to cram in as many recipes as possible this month! For me, one of the big parts of the holiday season is the food, and I just can’t seem to get enough this year!
And not only do I have a great last-minute appetizer recipe for you, but another cookbook that would make a great last minute gift for the foodie in your life!
I love holiday cookbooks, and this cookbook – Best of Bridge Holiday Classics – is no exception. And even though it’s labeled as a holiday cookbook, I think that there are so many recipes that can carry over throughout the year.
This is the first Best of Bridge cookbook that I have cooked from, or even looked through, for that matter. But I love how it feels like I’m reading through a church or community cookbook. Like the recipes that are throughout the book are ones that someone has been making for years, or a recipe that they got from their mom, or their mom’s mom. These are my favorite kinds of recipes!!
This book covers it all when it comes to holiday entertaining. Everything from brunches to desserts to sit-down dinners. There is even a chapter dedicated to food gifts, and another that gives you recipes to use up the holiday leftovers!
Here are the details:
Number of Photos: Some. With the format of this book, you get a chunk of recipes, then a few pages of photos, then another chunk of recipes, followed by a few more photos, etc. the whole way through the book. So the photos are not on the same pages as the recipes, but in small groups instead. With a quick flip through the book, I quickly counted 24 photos, so definitely not a lot of photos, but the photos that are included to give a good representation of what the recipes will look like.
Difficulty Level of Recipes: Easy. These recipes all come across like they were created by the home cook for the home cook. Nothing too complicated here!
Availability of Ingredients: Easy. These are all ingredients that you should easily be able to find at the grocery store.
Other Recipes I Want To Try:
Cajun Crab Cakes
Thai-Style Beef Salad
Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Squares
Little Sticky Toffee Puddings
And since we are in crunch time, and well, Christmas is tomorrow, I thought I’d bring you the easiest recipe ever. And it only takes 12 minutes, start to finish, not including the time it takes for the oven to preheat. If you are doing some holiday entertaining and realize you need a last minute appetizer, I am here to save you today.
This baked brie recipe is merely a wheel of brie, some sun-dried tomatoes, garlic and parsley. That’s it!! Chop up the sun-dried tomatoes and garlic while the oven is heating up, throw them on top of a wheel of brie, and stick it the oven. While it’s in the oven, chop up a little bit of parsley. Cook the brie until it is soft and starting to ooze, then add the parsley and your appetizer is done.
I told you it was easy!!
I served this baked brie recipe with bagel chips and crackers, and I couldn’t get enough. In fact, I’ll be making another one for our New Year’s Eve festivities!
So if you are looking for a good baked brie recipe, or a great last minute appetizer, your guests will love this easy recipe!

- 4 oz sun-dried tomatoes, finely chopped
- 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 (13.2 oz) wheel brie cheese
- 1-2 tablespoons chopped parsley
- bagel chips or crackers, for serving
- Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
- Combine the sun-dried tomatoes and garlic in a bowl with some of the oil from the tomatoes. Place the wheel of brie on a baking sheet (you can place it on a piece of parchment paper to make it easy to transfer to a serving plate). Place the sun-dried tomatoes and garlic on top of the cheese.
- Bake in the oven until the cheese is soft and starts to ooze out the sides, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle on the parsley before serving.
