Serves: Appetizers for a group
Winner: Easiest, prettiest, most impressive appetizer.
  • 1 wheel of brie
  • sliced figs and strawberries {for a small wheel of brie, try 2 figs and 4 strawberries}
  1. Heat gas grill to medium.
  2. Lay out a piece of heavy duty aluminum foil, and place the unwrapped wheel of brie on top.
  3. Add fruit to the top. Sliced fruit around the edge will help keep juices from dripping while cooking. But it's ok if they drip; it will stay in the foil.
  4. Close the foil around the brie. Try to make the packet tight. Give the cheese a little squeeze so you can see how firm it feels, which will help you determine when it has melted.
  5. Grill for 5-7 minutes. When the cheese feels soft when you push on the side, it's done. Scoop off the grill with a spatula.
  6. Serve with crackers and chips.
Try this recipe with other berries, peaches, and/or apple. I bet a drizzle of honey wouldn't hurt, either.
