This recipe has it all – a great flavor combination, amazing presentation and it’s easy! You will totally wow your guests with this one.
The combination of brie, basil, bacon and peach has become a family favorite since we first had it on a waffle at one of our favorite Portland eateries. Initially it sounds like a strange combination but it is amazing! I decided if it worked on a waffle it would work as an appetizer wrapped in puff pastry.
I love puff pastry. It is so easy to use and makes such am amazing presentation. I love that Pepperidge Farms Puff Pastry comes in various forms – sheets, cups or shells. For this recipe I used the sheets of puff pastry.
Allow the puff pastry to warm up a bit so that you can easily unfold it without tearing it. Place your Brie in the middle of the pastry sheet. The brie will be covered with a “rind”. This rind is eatable and can be left on. Place 1/4 cup of peach jam on top. I used my homemade peach jam but store bought will work fine.
Then top it with 2 slices of crisp bacon and 2 Tbsp of freshly sliced basil.
Then gently wrap the puff pastry around the brie. I make little tucks in the pastry as I work my way around the brie.
Be sure and pinch the pastry closed so your filling doesn’t leak out. Then give it an egg wash – just brush a beaten egg over the surface of the pastry to give it a nice shine.
I then placed in on a baking sheet and baked it in the oven at 375 for about 20 minutes. You want it to be nice and golden brown.
Then all you have to do is add some sliced baguette or crackers and dig in! If it has baked long enough, all that wonderful brie cheese will ooze out when you cut into it.
Be sure and get a little bit of all the flavors – brie, bacon, basil and peach for the full effect.
