I recently discovered this recipe courtesy of Chatelaine magazine, and I immediately fell in love. It’s super easy and quick to make, but it is mouth wateringly yummy and can be served before any meal. Although, I would recommend it prior to an Italian or Indian main course.

Bottom of Form


  • 300 g pkg brie
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tbsp chopped basil


  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Using a serrated knife, thinly slice off top rind of the brie and discard. Place in a brie baker or a pie plate. Bake in bottom third of oven until soft, about 10 min.
  2. Heat a small saucepan over medium-high. Add oil, then garlic, tomatoes and vinegar. Cook until mixture is reduced to a syrupy consistency, about 5 min.
  3. Spoon sauce over brie, then sprinkle with basil. Serve with crackers.

Tip: White balsamic vinegar is mild in flavour. Substitute regular balsamic if preferred.
