Garlic Cheese {Brie} Bread

I love bread!  Just about any kind of bread (except the white stuff that is full of air!).  My favorite kind of bread is garlic cheese bread – yum!!

Before the holidays I received an email asking me if I would like a sample of  the new President’s Brie Log.  Since I also love brie of course I said YES!

I love brie because it is such a nice mild and smooth cheese.  I have several favorite appetizer recipes that use brie.

So when my log of President’s Brie arrived I was having a hard time deciding what to do with it.  I love the idea of the brie in a log form.  If you have ever worked with brie you know that because it is such a soft cheese it can be a little difficult to cut.  The log shape makes it easy to slice and the round shape makes it perfect to put on a cracker.

One hang up I have had with brie though is the rind that it comes with.  Because of my texture issues I always felt like I needed to cut it off – that the texture would bother me.  If you have ever tried to remove the rind from brie it’s not that easy because the cheese is so soft and you often end up with a mess.

After much contemplation and checking out the President’s Cheese website where they have lots of fun recipe ideas I decided to make Garlic Cheese Bread using my brie.  All I needed was a baguette, my brie log, garlic and butter!

O.K. so I forgot the butter in the picture – but you’ll need it!

I also decided to be adventurous and NOT cut off the rind. I just sliced it up and put it on the bread.

The Garlic Cheese {Brie} Bread was a huge hit and delicious!  In fact it was so good I made it the next day for lunch – and that’s all I ate for lunch!  And guess what – I didn’t even notice the rind.  The cheese was smooth and delicious.

I am not sure where all the President’s Brie log is available but I have seen it at Trader Joe’s.

Next time you have a craving for garlic cheese bread try brie instead!

    There is a resturant in Hawaii that makes fried brie with Poha Berry jelly on toast crackers. I could eat an entire meal of just that!

    Oh my- my husband is not going to be very happy with you. Since he has requested lower carbs and healthier food. I will have to plan a night when he isn’t going to be home or sneak it. :)

    I will give a second testimony to my mothers, this bread is amazing. She made it over break while I was home for the Holidays and it was wonderful!

    I love Brie too–but I always feel like I have to peel the rind off or it will not taste as good. So it realy is just fine with the rind and all?? This recipe sounds wonderful!!
