Baked Brie with Figs & Honey
Brie is one of my go-to entertaining tricks. Everyone loves it! This gooey, yummy cheese is so versatile, and can be served plain, or dressed up with honey, fruit, and even puff pastry!
Today I am sharing one of my favorite recipes with you that makes entertaining a breeze! This fig and brie appetizer is beyond delicious. Plus, it’s incredibly easy!
I love drizzling this appetizer with honey and sprinkling it with high quality sea salt (Maldon is my favorite). The crunch of freshly toasted baguette mixed with the soft cheese is the perfect combination. The sweetness of fig and honey is perfectly balanced with the saltiness of the cheese.

Baked Brie & Honey Appetizer with Figs
1 loaf French baguette
6-8 ripe figs
1 round brie cheese
2-3 tablespoons honey
sea salt for garnish
herbs for garnish
Slice a French baguette into 1/2 “ pieces on the diagonal.
Brush each slide with a little olive oil.
Broil in the oven for 5-10 minutes, until golden brown and slightly crisp.
While the bread is toasting, slice the brie cheese into 1/8” slices about the size of a silver dollar.
Remove the bread from the oven, place a slice of cheese on each piece of bread and return to the oven. Bake for an additional 3-5 minutes, until the cheese has melted. Remove from the oven and place each piece on a serving platter.
Cut figs into 1/8” rounds, and place one round atop each piece of bread. Drizzle with honey, and sprinkle with coarse sea salt.
If desired, garnish with fresh thyme or rosemary.
