This is a fantastic holiday appetizer that will truly be a show stopper. It is elegant, delicious and best of all so easy to make for your family and guests.
Should You Cut The Rind Off Brie Before Baking
It is completely safe to eat the find of Brie. That is totally up to you if you want to take it off or leave if.
Many say the rind is what helps add flavor to the Brie so it is up to you on how you prepare your cheese. For us, we left it on.
How Do You Cut Rind off Brie
If you want to remove the white moldy rind what you do is wrap your Brie tightly in plastic wrap. Place in the freezer for 30-45 minutes. Remove and unwrap, and then with a sharp knife cut the top and bottom layer of rind. Then carefully slice the edges away.
What Is Brie Served With
I used a puff pastry for this that you cover the Brie with and bake up. When you go to eat you use the pastry around it to pull up cheese and toppings.
You could pair more things like crackers, sliced baguettes, and more next to it to catch the extra melted cheese.
Can I Bake This Maple Bacon Brie In Oven
If you don’t have an instant pot duo you can cook this in the oven. Just preheat to 350 degrees and cook until the puff pastry is golden brown and cooked through!
What If I Don’t Have Puff Pastry
If you don’t have or like puff pastry you could improvise with crescent rolls. Just press them together to form one big square and use that to wrap just as you would the puff pastry.
Try this cranberry Brie crescent roll appetizer for a sweet twist!

Any plain bacon will work. You chop it up and cook it before you place it on top of the appetizer. You don’t want to buy say a peppered bacon, just stick to regular bacon.

Can I Make This Brie Appetizer Ahead of Time
You will want to cook this right before you plan to serve. You could precook the bacon and store it in a bag in the fridge. Then mix with syrup to top the pastry. But this Brie appetizer is best served fresh from being cooked, fully cooking and reheating is not recommended.
