Brie Cheese Bread Bowl...


Thanksgiving is swiftly approaching, so I thought I'd share a recipe that my family enjoys each and every year for the holidays.

It's a bread bowl. A brie cheese bread bowl, to be exact.

An appetizer that my mother-in-law introduced to me and I'm so dang glad she did!

The best part about eating this is that you can tear it apart and indulge when you are out of baguettes... the entire thing... yes, I kid you not.

I mean, it's our favorite thing to do. The crunch of the bread as it's torn apart...... irresistible.

How can you not over-indulge in bread that looks like this?

Anyway, you will not regret making this apart of your Thanksgiving Menu, should you choose to do so.

Fights may irrupt over the last piece of bread bowl... I'm just sayin'.

Be prepared.

Brie Cheese Bread Bowl

  • 1 Large Loaf Sourdough Bread, Round
  • 4 Tablespoons Olive Oil, More If Desired
  • 2 Tablespoons Garlic Powder, Or To Taste
  • 2 Bars (8 Oz.) Cream Cheese, Cubed
  • 1 Wheel Brie Cheese, Rind Removed And Cubed
  • 2 Loaves Baguette Bread, Sliced Diagonally
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (F).

Begin by cutting the top off of the sourdough round. Set aside. Hollow out the sourdough round, saving the bread pieces for dipping later on. With a pastry brush, brush the olive oil inside the sourdough, making sure to get every nook and cranny. Sprinkle the garlic powder inside the sourdough seasoning it well. Fill the sourdough with the cream cheese and brie cheese. Cover with the top you cut earlier and completely wrap in heavy duty foil. Bake for 1-1/2 hours or until the cheese is hot and bubbly. 

Serve with sliced baguette pieces and bread pieces that were hollowed out. Break apart and devour, once you run out of bread!
