1 – Cranberry Walnut Crostini

Oh, cranberry walnut crostini, how we love you. Think crunchy crostini topped with sweet cranberries and earthy walnuts. The flavors dance together perfectly.

We need: baguette slices, cranberry sauce, and chopped walnuts. Toast the bread, spread the sauce, sprinkle the nuts.

The tartness from cranberries balances the nuttiness of walnuts. A bite-sized joy with the perfect crunch. Honestly, we can’t get enough. It’s like a snack symphony.

2 – Honey Roasted Figs

We’ve tasted the sweet, and trust us, honey roasted figs are something special. These figs are caramelized with honey, adding a candy-like sweetness that’s irresistible.

Ingredients are simple: fresh figs and honey. Slice figs in half, drizzle with honey, and roast until sticky and golden.

The result? A burst of gooey sweetness with every bite. Perfect for balancing out the creamy richness of baked brie.

3 – Grape and Thyme Skewers

Ever tried fruit on a stick? We have and trust us, these grape and thyme skewers are something else. We love the simplicity here: fresh grapes and a hint of fresh thyme. The sweetness of grapes and the aromatic touch of thyme is a flavor combo made in heaven.

Split grapes onto skewers, sprinkle thyme, enjoy. These are light, fresh, and great for a brie duo.

4 – Apricot Chutney

You need apricots, onions, ginger, vinegar, and sugar. This chutney is sweet and tangy, adding a delightful contrast to baked brie’s creaminess.

We toss sliced apricots with diced onions and a touch of ginger. Add vinegar and sugar. Cook until it’s thick and glossy. The chutney’s tartness elevates the richness of the brie.

We love how the apricots sparkle with each bite, making every nibble special.

5 – Rosemary Parmesan Crackers

We love a crunchy bite. These homemade crackers add a burst of flavor to our brie experience. We use flour, grated Parmesan, fresh rosemary, and a pinch of salt.

Mix them up, roll out, and bake until golden. The herb’s earthy notes pair perfectly with the cheese. It’s a savory, crispy bite every time. They’re always a hit at our gatherings.

6 – Balsamic Glazed Onions

We can’t get enough of these balsamic glazed onions. They’re slightly sweet, a bit tangy, and bring a whole new depth to our brie experience.

Ingredients are simple: onions, balsamic vinegar, honey, and a pinch of salt. Slice onions thin, toss in balsamic and honey, cook until caramelized. The result? Caramelized perfection with a tangy twist. The onions’ sweetness mixes brilliantly with the brie’s creaminess.

7 – Roasted Garlic Bread

Alright folks, roasted garlic bread is our ultimate favorite. It’s simple but oh-so-flavorful.

We need a loaf of bread, garlic cloves, olive oil, and a pinch of salt. Slice the bread, rub with roasted garlic, drizzle olive oil, sprinkle salt.

The rich garlicky flavor pairs seamlessly with brie’s creamy texture. We enjoy the crunch and the perfect hint of salt. This combo is always a winner at our gatherings.

8 – Apple and Pecan Salad

We’ve got a fresh, crunchy delight here—apple and pecan salad. We grab crisp apples, toasted pecans, mixed greens, and a hint of lemon juice. It’s sweet, nutty, and refreshingly tangy.

The apples give a sharp bite, while the toasted pecans add a rich, buttery crunch. Mixed greens keep it light and fresh. It’s a simple yet chic side for your baked brie.

9 – Caramelized Shallot Jam

We love a good caramelized shallot jam. Savory, sweet, and slightly tangy—this jam is everything.

Ingredients include shallots, brown sugar, balsamic vinegar, and olive oil. We slice shallots thin, cook them in olive oil, add brown sugar and balsamic vinegar. We cook until they’re jammy and caramelized.

Perfect balance of sweetness and depth. Pairs so well with creamy brie. Our gatherings? Always better with this jam.

10 – Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

We can’t resist prosciutto wrapped asparagus. The blend of salty prosciutto and tender asparagus is next level.

Ingredients are straightforward: fresh asparagus stalks and prosciutto slices. Wrap each stalk with prosciutto and bake until crispy.

The salty, crispy prosciutto highlights the bright, earthy taste of asparagus. Every bite is a mix of crunchy and savory. It’s our go-to for pairing with creamy brie.
