Roasted Grape Baked Brie

Lately, I’ve been a touch obsessed with roasting grapes. I roast fruit a lot — brings out the delicious natural sugars. So, when I was thinking up recipes for the holidays, I didn’t have to jump far to pair roasted grapes with cheese as I’ve had roasted grapes on ricotta before.

Roasted Grape Baked Brie

My favorite parties are those with tables full of small bites. Who needs a big meal when you can talk, laugh, drink, and nibble all night long! Roasted Grape and Baked Brie is the perfect appetizer for any party, especially a holiday party when the brie wheel is king. When roasted, the grapes burst releasing a sweet syrup that pairs incredibly with melting brie. Serve with a toasted baguette or crackers for an elegant and creative appetizer that will leave your guests talking. Cheers!

Roasted Grape Baked Brie

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound red grapes
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 1 pound brie
  • 1 tablespoon good quality honey
  • Pinch flaked sea salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Wash and pat dry the grapes. You can leave them on the stem or take them off. Toss grapes with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Place grapes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Transfer to the oven and roast for 15 to 20 minutes until the grapes burst and lose their juices. Watch carefully to make sure the juices don't burn. Remove from oven and set aside.
  3. Place the brie wheel on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Place in the oven for 5 to 10 minutes until soft to the touch. Carefully transfer the brie onto a serving plater.
  4. Top the brie with the roasted grapes and their juices. Drizzle the grapes with honey and a pinch of flaked sea salt. Serve with water crackers or toasted french bread slices.

    I can’t have holiday get-togethers without baked brie. I can’t wait to try it this way.

    I love roasted grapes, those guys don’t get enough press. And can I say that your photos jut make me want to stop by your house with a bottle or wine and demand to be let in? It would be a little awkward, but I’m OK with that.

    So this was a last minute decision to make this for Thanksgiving. Questions raced like would it be too rich prior to a big dinner? Dinner took longer than expected to get on the table and had 2 appetizers prepared. This melted brie godliness was the big hit, in fact the other appetizer stood in the shadows and was hardly touched. OMG – melted brie with sweet juicy red grapes dotted with honey and sea salt, what’s not to like? I didn’t use a full wheel as in the photo of this recipe, I just used a one third section so the brie ended up oozing out of the crust onto the parchment. No problem, I just grabbed my spatula and placed all the melting brie on the plate and continued with the rest of the recipe. It’s impressive and a definite crowd pleaser.

    Hi, I LOVE baked brie. I have a Modern Quilt Guild holiday gathering and am wondering if I could cook and serve this in a slow cooker. Any thoughts?

      I love that you are in a Modern Quilt Guild! As far as the brie goes, I’ve never served baked brie in a slow cooker. I believe it would certainly keep it warm but I know you wouldn’t be able to get the same roasted caramelization for the grapes as you would in the oven. Maybe if you roasted the grapes in the oven and served it all together in the slow cooker? Like I said, I’m not 100% sure. To be on the safe side I would test it in advance or find a more suitable dish for the party. Sorry I couldn’t have been more help! Cheers!
