Baked Brie with Apricot Jam and Almonds
A delicious and easy baked brie recipe made with apricot jam, brioche bread, eggs, half and half, brown sugar and almonds.
- 4 slices brioche bread, cut into cubes
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 3 tbsp half and half
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
- 12 oz sliced brie cheese *brie with the thin, edible rind recommended
- 1/3 cup sliced almonds
- 10 oz apricot jam or preserves *I use the Trader Joe's low sugar apricot preserves
- 3 tbsp brown sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Spray a round pie plate or shallow baking dish with olive oil spray
Place chopped brioche (should be in about 1" cubes) in the bottom of the dish
In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, half and half, salt and pepper
Pour egg mixture evenly over the cubed brioche
Place sliced brie on top of the brioche
Spread apricot jam/preserves on top of sliced brie
Add almonds on top of the jam then sprinkle with the brown sugar
Loosely cover the dish with foil and bake for 20 minutes. I like to uncover and broil for less than a minute until the cheese is nice and bubbly. If you use the broil setting, watch constantly so it doesn't overcook.
Serve immediately with crackers and fresh fruit
