baked brie with almond rosemary crackers

For the Savory Herbed Holiday Baked Brie:

  • 1 wheel brie
  • 2 Tablespoons raw pistachios
  • 2 Tablespoons raw pecan halves
  • 2 Tablespoons raw hazelnuts
  • 2 Tablespoons raw brazil nuts
  • 1 Tablespoon, plus 1 teaspoon Pompeian Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, divided
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh sage, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh thyme
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

For the Almond Rosemary Crackers:

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 Tablespoon flaxseed meal
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/2 Tablespoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 3 Tablespoon water
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

For the Almond-Rosemary Crackers

  1. Add all ingredients, excluding water, to a small bowl and mix well. Add water and use a spatula to mix until it forms a "batter" and sticks together. 
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and transfer the batter to the baking sheet. Form the batter into a rectangle with your hands, then place a second piece of parchment paper over it. Use a rolling pin to roll out the crackers into a 1/8" thin rectangle. 
  3. Use a knife to cut your large rectangle into square cracker shapes. No need to break apart, you'll do this after you bake them. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the crackers are dry and crispy. 
  4. Let them cool while you prepare the brie, then break them apart. 

For the Savory Herbed Holiday Baked Brie:

  1. Remove your wheel of brie from its packaging. Use a serrated knife to slice off the top rind (leave the rest of the rind on.)
  2. Add brie to a parchment paper lined baking sheet and drizzle with 1 teaspoon Pompeian Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Season with a small amount of salt and pepper. 
  3. Bake for 7-9 minutes, or until melty inside. 
  4. Meanwhile, heat a skillet over medium heat with 1 Tablespoon Pompeian Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Add all of your nuts and herbs, and season with salt and pepper. Toss constantly for 5-7 minutes, or until toasty and aromatic. 
  5. When the brie comes out of the oven, top it with herbed nuts. Serve with Almond-Rosemary Crackers.
