Last Minute Appetizer


It's Christmas Eve and you've still got remnants of scotch tape all over you from wrapping your last minute gifts for tonight's family party. And to make matters worse, you were supposed to bring an appetizer and just didn't have the time to prepare something in advance.

Don't resign yourself to the slightly dodgy-looking crudite tray leftover in the produce section. The following recipe is extremely simple, should be assembled on-site (so you were supposed to wait until the last minute), and will have a sophisticated enough taste that people will think you planned it in advance. Enjoy and have fun!

Chutney Baked Brie
1 tsp Moroccan Spice Blend or Mild Curry Powder
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 16oz Wheel of brie or camembert cheese (a 4-5" wheel)
1 cup (1 jar) Mango Chutney
1 French Baguette cut into 1/2 inch slices, or water crackers (I like Carr's)

1. Preheat the oven to 350˚F.

2. In a small bowl, stir the Moroccan Spice blend and Roasted Garlic Olive Oil together. Using a pastry brush spread the mixture on all sides of the brie wheel.

3. Place the painted brie wheel in an oven proof dish. Spread the Mango Chutney over the top. Place the dish is the middle of the oven. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the wheel puffs out and the cheese is soft. Remove from the oven and serve immediately with slices of baguette or water crackers.
