Baked Brie with Roasted Grapes

Holiday gatherings are incomplete without signature dishes that evoke warmth and festivity. In my family, the star of the show is the indulgent Baked Brie with Roasted Grapes, a dish destined to become a holiday staple in any household.

Baked Brie with Roasted Grapes

Let’s be honest, is there anything more satisfying as a good cheese pull? There’s something about cutting into luxuriously molten cheese and watching the stream of creaminess trail towards your awaiting baguette or cracker. This dish gives you all of that satisfaction and then some while also being incredibly easy.

All the Cheese, Please!

When it comes to entertaining, I don’t want to spend my entire time in the kitchen. I love spoiling my friends and family with amazing food while also spending quality time with them and making memories. This Baked Brie with Roasted Grapes allows me to do both.

Brie is just one of those magic ingredients. Straight from the refrigerator it instantly elevates your charcuterie board and livens up a sandwich. But allowed to warm and soften into a creamy molten delicacy it becomes something entirely new.

We’re dressing this sumptuous baked brie in festive holiday color and flavor with the addition of roasted grapes and the crunch of toasted walnuts. These are not just any roasted grapes however; these grapes are roasted with the addition of red wine. As the grapes roast their flavor deepens and intensifies as the wine reduces and thickens.

How you serve this elegant dish is completely up to you. It’s equally as delicious with an array of your favorite crackers and crudites as it is with slices of baguette. The only question is, who gets the honor of cutting into it and experiencing the volcano of melted cheese first?

    The taste is very good, but the wine did not reduce enough. I am going to try it again with 1/2C of wine and see if that is enough!
