Baked Brie with Jam is one of my favourite simple but beautiful appetizers to make. It’s such a crowd pleaser and it never fails, every time I make it my guests always ask me for the recipe!

When one of your friends or family members says to you “can you bring an appetizer?” and you always think to yourself “what am I going to make!?” well, I got you! Today I am starting an appetizer series where I am going to share 15 of my favourite appetizers over the next 15 days. I am starting strong with my Baked Brie with Jam because it is delicious, creamy and so simple to make. Also, who doesn’t live for a good cheesy appetizer?

Here is a quick overview of the ingredients you’ll need to make my Baked Brie with Jam.
For the exact detailed measurements and ingredients, scroll to the bottom of this page to review my recipe card.

  • Brie: I usually buy the biggest brie wheel that I can find. I typically have the best luck at Costco.
  • Blueberry jam: I have tried several different jams in this recipe and the two best (in my opinion) are blueberry and fig jam, so I would suggest either of these.
  • Walnuts: You can also use pecans or almonds in place of the walnuts if you prefer those options.
  • Rosemary: The rosemary adds a nice woodsy/peppery vibe to the dish which works really well with the brie.
  • Honey: The honey compliments the brie and jam really well and adds a beautiful sweetness to the cheese.
  • Crackers: I recommend finding crackers that have nuts and dried fruit in them, as it pairs best with the brie and blueberry jam. You can also serve this baked brie with crostini, which is also super delicious.

4 steps to make Baked Brie with Jam

Begin by slicing your brie horizontally and then vertically into little cubes (don’t go all the way down, just break the surface). Bake this in a 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the brie begins to melt out of the sides and its soft enough (but not too soft) to spread the jam over the top.

While the brie is baking in the oven prepare your walnut topping. Toast your walnuts in a small pan for 2-3 minutes and then add your rosemary and honey. Remove from the heat while you wait for your brie to finish cooking.

Once your brie is cooked, spread on your jam of choice! As mentioned blueberry and fig jam are my favourites for this recipe.

Top with the walnut mixture and serve with some crackers or a fresh toasted baguette.

Substitutions & FAQ’s

Can I use a different jam in this recipe?
Absolutely, use what you like! I have tried this recipe with a few different jams and my two favourites are blueberry and fig.

How do I know when I should take my brie out of the oven?
Typically the brie should be ready to come out of the oven in about 15 minutes. You want the brie to be soft to touch but not so soft that if you spread the jam on the top it would all melt together.

What type of wine pairs well with this Baked Brie with Jam recipe?
Some personal favourites are pinot noir or a nice cold chardonnay.

If I don’t have crackers what can I use instead?
Sometimes if I don’t feel like using crackers in this recipe (or don’t have any) I will toast a baguette and slice it into bite-size pieces and serve it alongside the brie.

    1. Hi Em! I would say warm from the oven. Although, if you are bringing to a friends place, I recommend prepping everything and then just assembling once you arrive as it takes very little effort and time! Hope this helps.
