i really like cheese.
i mean… i really like cheese.
especially melted cheese.
especially with something crunchy.
i could never be a vegan.
i always bookmark tasty lil recipes i find on tasteologie or from food network. a few weeks ago, i found this delightful treat: brie & walnut bites. last night i threw them together for my parents and me before dinner (steak sandwiches & brussel sprouts with bacon). the base is phyllo pastry cups that you can buy ready-made from the grocery (or make yourself painstakingly) which gives it a satisfying crunch. the brie is melted inside the little cup and then topped off with toasted walnuts & honey. only four ingredients! easy, quick, painless.
so here we go. this recipe is from what’s cookin, chicago…. a food blog.
brie & walnut bites
- 1 package phyllo shells
- 1/2 lb. brie cheese
- 1/4 c. walnuts, toasted & chopped
- 2 Tbsp. honey
preheat the oven to 350 F. remove the phyllo shells from their packaging and place them on a baking sheet.
spoon about a teaspoon of brie into each shell. place them in the oven for about 5 or 6 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the shells are warmed through.
remove the shells from the oven and sprinkle with the walnuts. place the shells onto a platter & drizzle with honey.
