CranBertaberry – Holiday Brie Crostini Recipe

by Thursday, December 10, 2020

It is known that members of my family still prefer cranberry sauce from the can as opposed to my tangy homemade sauce. I can only attribute this to nostalgia. So now there are now always 2 types of “sauce” on our holiday table and there are always leftovers. I could make less or I could freeze the access but, this year I opted for a more creative solution. Cranberry Brie Crostini’s. I have also noticed from my cheese plate, that half the cheese wheel is usually leftover from the appetizer table. These 2 things pair perfectly together, all they need is a vehicle  – enter the French baguette. This recipe is terribly easy – and since it’s the holidays, you probably already have all the ingredients to create.

What you need

1 French Baguette

Leftover homemade cranberry sauce

1 small extra creamy brie wheel

2 tbs olive oil

2 tbs butter

What to do

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Slice baguette into 1/2  inch thin slices. Melt butter & whisk together with olive oil. Coat both sides of bread slices with mixture. Bake each side for 6-7 minutes, or until lightly browned.

Next, add a thin slice of brie to each slice and top with a dollop of cranberry sauce.  Garnish with rosemary or sage sprig – eat!
