  • 1 8 ounce Brie cheese with rind (about 4 inches in diameter)
  • 3 tablespoons orange marmalade
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds, coarsely chopped hazelnuts (filberts) or pecans, toasted
  • 1 medium yellow apple or ripe pear, cored and sliced into thin wedges* or 1/2 cup sliced strawberries and 1 kiwifruit, peeled and sliced lengthwise into wedges
  • French bread slices, assorted crackers and/or melba toasts, optional
Cut off a thin slice from the top of the Brie to remove the rind; discard. Place round of Brie in a 6-inch cast-iron skillet or disposable foil pan. Spread top of brie with orange marmalade, leaving a 1/2-inch border.
Place skillet or pan on the grill rack. Grill directly over low coals. Cover and grill for 8 to 10 minutes or till brie is softened and warmed. Place the almonds, hazelnuts or pecans around the border.
Serve with fruit, French bread slices, assorted crackers and/or melba toast, if you like. Makes 8 servings.


  • If serving with apple or pear slices, dip in lemon juice to prevent browning.
