This Baked Brie Cheese with Strawberries is so easy to make and incredibly delicious. Brie cheese is stuffed with a mixture of brown sugar, cashews and almonds then baked until warm and gooey. To make it even more amazing, I top it with a fresh balsamic-mint strawberry salsa.
How To Make Baked Brie Cheese with Strawberries
- I start with Back To Nature Jumbo Cashews, Back To Nature Unsalted California Almonds and brown sugar. I place them in a small food processor and process until the nuts are coarsely chopped. Don’t over do it, we want a bit of crunch from the nuts.
- After reserving one tablespoon of the nut/sugar mixture, I slice open the brie cheese, and add some of the sugar/nut mixture inside. I place the sliced cheese back on and top it all with the remaining sugar and nuts.
- While the brie bakes, I prepare the strawberries. Chopped strawberries are tossed with balsamic vinegar, fresh mint and a tablespoon of sugary/nut goodness!
To serve this Baked Brie Cheese with Strawberries, there is nothing better than crackers! Back To Nature has a wonderful assortment sure to please every palate! There’s no need to pick just one type – they are all so tasty and go so well with this baked brie appetizer!
