How to eat brie?

My favorite sandwich of all time has got to be the brie and tomato on french baguette... mmm!

Now that I can't eat that beautiful french baguette, I'm at a loss as to ideas on how to eat my beloved brie? Right now I'm just cutting it into slices and snacking on it this way, but I really miss having something else along with it! I don't enjoy ANY of the low carb breads so that's not an option.

Have you tried the Almond Thin cracker recipe? It is SO good!

I love Brie and this way I can enjoy it with crackers again.

years ago, i had this fabulous treat of brie, wrapped in dough and baked it was wonderful! well i found one of those small wheels of brie, at costco, and i gave it a try. OMG it tasted like what one would think vomit would taste like, and i am not jokin. What did i do wrong? do you cut the white stuff off? if any of you have some ideas i would surely appreciate it.

I gave up eating brie, because I can no longer bake it in a puff pastry with almonds and jam.

I haven't tried the almond thins with brie, but I'll bet it would be good.

I envision a Carbquick recipe....

Hmm, I like brie all by itself, slightly melty preferably. On the almond of the cheeter's diet crackers I bet it would be good if you crave a crunch.

You can opt to eat the rind or not, it is edible, but some prefer not to. The costco issue could've just been the brand of brie, some is far better than others.

I looove brie. I put it on celery but it's good by itself, imo. Triple cream brie, yum want some now

Wonder how it'd be if you toasted a lc pita bread, then melt under a broiler for a few minutes, Hazel?

I love triple creme brie, but double creme is also very good. I just heat an ounce or two in the microwave for about 7 seconds, and enjoy. Yum. It's good with Wasa crackers, too.

One of the best cheeses I have ever had was a combination of a blue and a brie that I picked up at Trader Joe's (can't remember the name, but I think they still carry it). It had the soft texture and rind of brie, but in addition to that rich creamy brie taste, it had the salt tangy taste of a blue, it was great stuff.

Brie, camembert, goat cheese--all the soft cheese are great cut into piece and mixed into a salad of baby greens. A few toasted nuts and a lemon juice/olive oil dressing--delicious!

Or you can slice brie thin and serve it on very thin slices of pear.

Or you can slice it thin and wrap it inside smoked salmon

Just purchased a baby wheel of Alouette Brie at Costco yesterday. Love it. I have gotten this brand many times before. I eat it plain, or heated up and kind of melty. When I melt it I put toasted almonds on top sometimes and you can also use SF jelly (just a little). Put it on celery or Almond thins. Yummy!!

That would probably be heavenly, unfortunately no pita breads at my grocery store are particularily low carb so I stay away from that Being in canada there aren't many stores around that sell alot of that stuff, which is probably a good thing

NulloModo, Saga Blue is a soft-ripened blue. It is exactly as you describe- like a cross between brie and blue.

treadle, I am going to do that. Maybe even today.

Ah, that is the one, Saga Blue. The TJs triple cream brie and goat brie are also great. Then again, I am an avid lover of anything goat-related.

I love brie on Wasa crackers and one Wasa (can't recall which) is fairly lc. Just slice and nuke just a few seconds. I love brie in crust but now just slice off the top, toss on some almond slices and put in a corningwear (I have one just the size of a small brie) and bake - then just smear on whatever.

For Christmas, I made little tart shells to serve brie in. Cut the crust off lc bread, flatten with a rolling pin, cut out circles with cookie cutter (@ 2 inches across) and stick into a mini muffin pan. I then brushed on melted butter and baked until crisp. These stayed fresh for many days and to serve, I just stick a dollap of brie (also did some herb cc) inside the shell and bake in the oven for a few minutes - yummy and no one ever knew they were lc.
