Beli's Baked Brie
Description:This recipe comes from Beli Davila a regular here on the forum who lives in Monterey, Mexico. This is a super delicious way of making baked brie!
Ingredients:1 round of brie
Freshly ground pepper
Amaranth seed with honey
Sliced almonds
Maple flakes
Tarragon, chopped

Half of a maple plank

Instructions:You may wish to get your cooker and maple plank ready at this point so you are ready to go once you have assembled your ingredients. The cooker should be preheated to 400°F with a raised grid. You don\'t need any sort of heat barrier; that\'s what the maple plank is for. (If you think you would like some smoke from the maple wood, then don\'t soak the plank.)

The brie comes wrapped in plastic, which you will of course, remove. If you are unfamiliar with brie, it is encased in a rind of white mold, which you can eat. For our purposes, we will remove most of the rind from the top of the brie in order to make a slight depression that will help the ingredients stay in place on top of the brie. However, don\'t remove the rind from the sides and bottom of the brie! If you do, the whole thing will melt into a blob of goo.

Now just add the ingredients one by one.

We baked our brie at 400°F for 15 minutes. You are looking to warm the cheese and make it nice and soft and gooey so that the brie oozes out once you cut into the rind. The cheese should just start to bubble out of the rind. This is a good sign to look for.

Serve immediately with apple slices or crackers.

Notes:Amaranth seed with honey? Frankly, we have no clue as to where you can purchase this item in the United States. We obtained ours from Beli who bought it at an H.E.B. grocery in Mexico. You might like to try substituting some toasted sesame seeds with a touch of honey. Or, you could omit them. There are lots of flavors here. If you do go looking, in Spanish, it will be labeled \"Amaranto con miel\". Another flavor combination we tried and liked was substituting basil for the tarragon. Yet another flavor combination recommended by Beli is strawberry chipotle sauce, almonds, blueberries, amaranth and tarragon. As you can see, you can let your imagination run wild. Another flavor that Beli sometimes adds (but we did not) is a splash of red wine.

Fantastic and unique appetizer. This is excellent. I used toasted almonds and toasted sesame seeds, drizzled with honey over sesame seeds, along with other toppings per the recipe. Be sure and check out photos of this dish on nakedwhiz site.

What are maple flakes? I've never heard of them either.
