Baked Brie with Roasted Figs is an appetizer that will wow your guests, but requires minimal time in the kitchen. Perfect for holiday get togethers.
Remember last summer when I shared this recipe for Fig and Goat Cheese Bites? I received FOUR cases of figs to recipe test with and since I knew that we couldn’t eat all of them quickly enough before they went bad, I froze a couple cases. And boy am I so glad that I did because now I have all the figs to make this Baked Brie with Roasted Figs this Christmas.
I had read about freezing figs and that after you freeze them they tend to get a little soft and watery. I have found that to be true. With that said however, while I might not just snack on them like I did when they were fresh, when they are roasted like in this appetizer, they are just as amazing as they were last summer.
Last summer, I also discovered that figs and honey are pretty much a match made in heaven. Fresh figs are great with honey and as it turns out roasted figs are also fantastic with a drizzle of honey over the top.
I served this Baked Brie with Roasted Figs with some crostini. It also worked well with buttery crackers. Just make sure that you serve it in a dish that retains heat. I have a mini cast iron skillet so that kept the cheese warm and gooey :)
I’ll be taking the next week or so off blogging so I just want to wish all of you a Merry Christmas! I hope you spend time with family and friends. Enjoy the lights, the music, the laughs and of course the food! Be back soon! ~ Des

I’ve honestly never had figs like this before or outside of a spread before. It sounds like i have something to add to my list of new things to try!
