Wine and Cheese Please…
recipes since it’s the first week of a new year. But, I am still trying to slowly recap some of the great food that was eaten over this past holiday.
A few weeks before Christmas, our nephew Ryan graduated from the University of Central Florida and we celebrated by throwing him a graduation party with an Italian/Wine and Cheese theme.
There are some really great recipes out there on the web for Baked Brie, I threw together a very simple yet so delicious topping.
large round of brie (found at Costco)
1/3 cup of brown sugar
1/3 cup of roughly chopped pecans
1/3 cup of butter
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Melt butter and sugar together in saucepan. Add pecans and cook for about 5 minutes. Pour over brie round and bake for approximately 20-25 minutes in oven.
Recipe from Giada De Laurentiis on Foodnetwork.com
2 1/2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh thyme leaves
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 teaspoon coarsely cracked black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 (11-ounce) log soft fresh goat cheese
1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil or Meyer lemon olive oil
Fresh herb sprigs, for garnish
Stir the herbs, lemon zest, pepper, and salt in a medium bowl to blend. Roll the cheese log in the herb mixture to coat completely. Arrange the cheese on a platter. Drizzle the extra-virgin olive oil over and around the cheese log. Serve with the crostini, crackers and fruit. Garnish with herb sprigs.
