Baked brie with maple-bacon apples

Serves 6

Ingredients:

  • 1 apple, unpeeled, cored, and cut into thin wedges
  • 2 slices thick-cut bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup, divided
  • 350g wheel of brie
  • Crackers or sliced bread
  • Chopped chives (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Cut apple into thin wedges. Heat a medium frying pan on medium-high. Add bacon and cook 3 to 6 minutes or until crispy. Remove from pan using a slotted spoon. Drain on paper towels. Remove and discard half of fat from pan.
  2. Add apples to bacon fat in pan. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook while stirring often, about 6 to 10 minutes or until apples are very soft. Add reserved bacon and 1 tbsp maple syrup.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a pie dish with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Place brie on top of foil and poke holes in it with a skewer. Spoon apple mixture on top. Bake until cheese is very soft, about 10 to 15 minutes. Drizzle with remaining maple syrup and sprinkle with chives. Serve immediately with crackers.

Tip: You can make the apple topping up to a day in advance, just be sure to keep refrigerated.
