What You Will Need:

  • 3 Strips bacon - diced
  • 2 Tbsp butter - unsalted
  • 1 whole apple - such as Granny Smith, diced
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 8 oz Brie cheese - 8-ounce wheel
  • Toasted and sliced baguette - crackers and/or apple slices, for serving

Method:

  • Heat the oven to 325 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or use a silicone cooking mat, or better yet a cast iron skillet.
  • In a cast iron skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat until brown and crisp, about 8 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate. Pour the rendered bacon fat into a bowl and save for another use.
    browning butter
  • Melt the butter in the now-empty skillet over medium heat. When the butter is foamy, add the apples and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Stir in the brown sugar, cinnamon and salt, and continue to cook until the apples are tender, about 2 more minutes. Remove from the heat.
  • Slice the rind off the top of the Brie and place on the prepared baking sheet or bake into the cast iron pan. Bake until the cheese is very soft, 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Slide the baked Brie onto a serving dish and top with the apple mixture, followed by the bacon. Surround with baguette slices, crackers and/or apples, and serve immediately. Or serve directly from the cast iron pan
