Friends, as we roll into Thanksgiving this week, here’s an easy Brie recipe that everyone loves: Winter Brie Charcuterie Board.  

Winter Brie Charcuterie Board

I love this time of year, not only sharing a cheese board, but investing a little more than normal in gratitude. In other words, just upping our “thanksgiving” a little more, and maybe reaching a little further for it than is comfortable.

Maybe you’ve never made a cheese board or charcuterie? It’s easy! A couple years ago, my friend Lori (RecipeGirl) and I made a fun video, “How to Charcuterie.” :)

Maybe during this “season” thanksgiving means popping a gift card in the mail or sending a card to someone.

Listen for the things you are meant to do. This year, I had to make a big decision about something I didn’t really want to do. But I listened, and now I’m grateful I did.

Investing in gratitude yields many happy returns

Now you get the chance to buy a board, and share it with others. Or buy a board for a gift this year.

We’re all cooking at home a little more, and I don’t know about you, but in the mundane of this “season,” it’s fun to reach for new ideas.

Dinner boards can be as simple as a cheese board, a store-bought meal board, takeout on a board—and just because boards. Because it draws us together.

I know, you’re probably in the same shoes I’m in. A smaller gathering this year, maybe for Christmas, too.

Another reason to make a nice charcuterie or cheese board to share!

Today I’m grateful for my RE family, and all the love and support for my new boards!

How to make hot brie

  1. Fill a round 6-inch baking dish with 8 oz of Brie. I bought mine years ago when visiting Wears Many Hats in Brevard NC, and it holds the perfect disc of Brie. Pampered Chef has a great size, too.
  2. Add the jam and bake!
  3. Set on a hot pad in the center of a board and fill in the rest!

You may also love want to try my Cranberry Pistachio Brie Appetizer (if you want to cut the top off of your brie, follow this recipe). 

Can you eat the outer layer of brie?

Yes, you can eat the rind of Brie, Camembert, or any soft-ripened cheese. The white mold is Penicillium camemberti (a.k.a. P. candidum), and the rind is totally edible and adds texture and flavor to the cheese.

May we serve each other plates full of love and goodness this wintery holiday season!
