This is one of the easiest and yummiest recipes! My mom has been making this for years and it has always been one of my favorites. Its warm and gooey and perfect for a winter hors d’oeurve.
Start by chopping up some mushrooms, garlic, scallions, parsley, salt and pepper.
Saute this until the liquid from the mushrooms has cooked off.
I could literally eat this just like this!
While the mushroom mixture is cooking, peel the white stuff (what’s that called??) off the brie using a vegetable peeler.
The final result. It doesn’t need to be perfect but you want to get most of it. Cut the wheel in half, horizontally so you have 2 rounds.
Unfold the puff pastry and place the bottom half of the brie in the center.
Pile the mushroom mixture onto the bottom half of the brie and then put the top on it… it looks like a ridiculously good sandwich.
Fold the corners of the pastry over the top of the brie, then fold the rest on top of that. Try to make it look as pretty as possible.
….Mine didn’t turn out so pretty. Make an egg wash with an egg yolk and heavy cream. Brush the wash over the top of the pastry.
Put it in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until golden.
Look at the oozy cheese and mushrooms…. I’m speechless.
