This easy Brie Bite recipe serves up to six people and is an absolute must-try for all cheese lovers out there. However, do keep in mind that this recipe includes dairy and gluten, so it may not be suitable for those with certain dietary restrictions or health conditions.

The star of this French Brie appetizer is undoubtedly the wheel of creamy Brie cheese. Its rich and buttery flavor pairs beautifully with the crispness of a toasted baguette. The addition of extra virgin olive oil adds a touch of Mediterranean flair while minced garlic and fresh herbs like thyme and rosemary infuse the dish with aromatic depth. A sprinkle of salt and pepper to taste brings out all these wonderful flavors.

To create this baked Brie baguette delight, start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Slice your wheel of Brie in half horizontally and place it on a baking sheet alongside slices of baguette. In a small bowl, combine extra virgin olive oil with minced garlic, fresh thyme leaves, chopped rosemary, salt, and pepper – creating an aromatic garlic herb mixture that you’ll brush generously over the Brie halves and baguette slices before baking them until golden brown.
