Baked Brie

This is such a fun and tasty recipe, especially over a campfire. With so many of our recipes, you can add almost anything you enjoy eating into the pan and it would be great. Brie has a high water content of about 50%, which makes it the perfect cheese for heating in a hot pan and spreading on crackers, fruit or veggies.


  • wheel of brie (18 oz.)
  • walnuts, pecans, almonds or mixed nuts
  • dried fruit
  • celery sticks
  • carrots
  • crackers
  • maple syrup or honey


  1. Heat a cast iron pan over a campfire or stove until it gets hot. Place the wheel of brie in the pan and let cook for about 4 to 5 minutes depending on the heat. I like to slightly char the bottom but be careful not to burn. Check the bottom occasionally using a spatula and flip to the other side when ready.
  2. Add the nuts, dried fruit and other ingredients you may use. Let the brie cook for another four minutes or so while occasionally stirring or moving the nuts, fruit, etc. around so they do not burn.
  3. After a few minutes, cut a slit in the top of the brie and drizzle in the maple syrup or honey. It may run over into the pan and mix it in with the nuts and fruit – this is a good thing!
  4. When the color is right on the bottom, remove the pan from the heat and serve from the pan. Use carrots, celery and crackers to dip into the melted brie or eat with a spoon. Enjoy and Go {Cook}!
