More About This Recipe
If you're looking for a creamy, savory, and delicious appetizer, look no further than this easy to make Savory Baked Brie with Sundried Tomatoes and Capers.
My husband has an immense (albeit dangerous) salt tooth. He’ll eat pizza and potato chips any day over ice cream and brownies. He also has an unbelievable food memory, and can remember the distinct taste of things he’s tried years ago.
Enter baked Brie – after enjoying it once a restaurant a long time ago, one filled with sweet ingredients, he still talks about it to this day. So I just I had to surprise him with a homemade version, savory style.
This Savory Baked Brie with Sundried Tomatoes and Capers is just the thing for anyone with a salt tooth or for anyone who loves cheese. It’s also perfect for anyone who wants to make something that seems fancy, but in reality takes very little effort and time to make.
What tastes like a five-star restaurant recipe is simply a handful of ingredients placed into the oven for less than a half-hour. It really is that simple!
I’m a big fan of using phyllo dough instead of puff pastry for its light and crunchy texture, so I packaged my baked Brie in a few thin sheets. I also sandwich the fillings – tart sundried tomatoes, meaty black olives and briny capers – between two halves of creamy Brie cheese so the flavors meld and melt into the cheese while baking.
One dip into the appetizer and out cascades delicious, melted cheese and savory fillings, ready to be scooped up by crackers, veggies and fruit. It’s a great recipe to make for your next get-together, for a “fancy” yet effortless meal at home – or for pleasing the salt tooths in your circle.
