Brie, Bacon and Chicken Stuffed Baked Potatoes

Brie, bacon and chicken baked potatoes

This is a case where an inspiration ingredient turned into an amazing meal.

I bought the block of brie at Trader Joe’s the other night.  It caught my eye, and even though I didn’t know what I’d do with it, the brie had to go home with me.

On Sunday I decided that the brie needed to be tucked into hot, baked potatoes.  Oh my!  Brie was made for potatoes.  My son-in-law said brie is like cheese trying to be butter.  Perfect!

My oven has a delayed bake setting on it, so the potatoes went into the oven while we were at church.  Once we were home, I pulled together a quick topping of chicken (I used rotisserie chicken), onions, French herbs in chicken broth.

We nestled slices of brie into the split potatoes, spooned the chicken and onions over the top and crumbled bacon over it all.

It was easy, quick and amazing!

Apricot and Pecan Topped Brie Appetizer (and a Bakeware Giveaway!)

Apricot and Pecan topped Brie

 

 

I’ve been working with Libby’s recently and I was so excited to be asked to create a Thanksgiving recipe using their product.  I chose to use Libby’s apricot halves.  Apricots are a favorite of mine.  I used to eat them with breakfast every day. Yum!

This appetizer couldn’t be simpler to make.  It has plenty of fall flavor too.  Apricots and pecans get spiced up with cinnamon, nutmeg and a splash of vanilla.  The warm fruit tops melty brie for an appetizer that your guests will love!  It will definitely keep them happy and willing to wait a bit longer for dinner.

(I’ve also got a fantastic giveaway at the end of this post, so keep reading!)

Toasted Apple and Brie Sandwiches on Cinnamon Swirl Bread

This simple sandwich proved to be one of the best meals I’ve had all year.  Thin slices of Granny Smith apple and brie, tucked inside cinnamon swirl bread then toasted.  Divine!

This idea is not my own, but I can’t remember where I first saw it.  It’s been quite a while, maybe even a year ago.  [Read more…]
