It’s warm out and you and your grill are besties. Before you put on the salmon and shish kebabs, give this appetizer a place in the sun. Baked brie is a hit during cold seasons, but few feel like cranking up the oven in August. This “grilled cheese” will delight every cheese lover in your life (or at least your yard). Laying a wheel of brie over an open flame is a special thrill. The rind keeps things contained so it doesn’t get messy, and the grill marks are a thing of glory! Whip up the next-level cherry, honey and balsamic sauce beforehand so it’ll be ready to spread. You may not be reinventing the wheel, but it’s a cool new way to roll.
Grilled Brie with Balsamic Cherry Sauce
Heat skillet over medium heat. Add butter and cherries. Sauté 2 minutes, then add honey, balsamic vinegar, rosemary and salt.
Bring sauce to boil for 3-5 minutes to reduce some liquid. Reduce heat to simmer and cook for another 5-10 minutes. Once thickened, remove from heat.
Heat barbecue grill or grated grill pan to medium-high heat. Rub oil over brie and grill for 2-3 minutes per side.
Arrange cheese on board or plate. Top with sauce. Slice and serve with bread or crackers.
