Baked Brie Bites - Easy and Elegant Appetizers #holiday #appetizers #thanksgiving #christmas

Once upon a time, the only appetizer I ever made was baked brie.

You know… the old classic wheel of brie wrapped in puff pastry and topped with jam or berries?

I had a special relationship with that molten bundle and it played the part of my escort to many a holiday gathering.

Yet as time progressed, I felt the need to branch out in my party food endeavors. For a few years I made appetizer after appetizer, each one more delectable than the one before.

Out of sight out of mind for baked brie?

Never. With baked brie, absence only made the heart grow fonder.

So I’ve brought it back with a vengeance, creating all sorts of baked brie recipes including this itty bitty spin on the classic.

How to Make Baked Brie Bites - Easy and Elegant Appetizers #holiday #appetizers #thanksgiving #christmas

In today’s recipe I used Athens Mini Fillo Shells to make easy-to-hold baked brie bites, that just might be the world’s easiest party snack.

I love using Athens Mini Fillo Shells this time of year because they are the perfect crispy palette for all your favorite holiday flavors.

With only four ingredients, and 5 minutes in the oven, I may never go back to baking the whole wheel of brie.

Crisp pastry, oozing cheese, tangy cranberry preserves, and salty pistachios.

I think I’ve struck baked brie gold!

This would be the perfect starter for your Thanksgiving feast this year.

Use a little of your cranberry sauce to top each baked brie bite. They are so easy to make your kids could do it for you while you’re whipping up the sweet potatoes and gravy.

  37. Carolposted November 9, 2013 at 1:48 pm

    Any way to reheat in the microwave? Seems like they would become soggy.


    • Sommer — November 10th, 2013 @ 7:52 pm

      Hi Carol, they are just so fast to make, I would always make them fresh and not try to reheat.


  38. Coco in the Kitchenposted November 11, 2013 at 11:17 am

    SO cute and easy. I thought you’d made the phyllo cups yourself, Sommer. I’m going to look for them @ the market today!

    Hi, I can’t wait to try this recipe. Do you leave the rind on the brie or remove it when cubing the cheese?
