Now that children are out of school and summer is here, most of us don’t want to spend a lot of time preparing meals. We would rather head outside and enjoy the beautiful weather. In the summer, I like to keep meals quick and easy. Baked Brie with Balsamic Strawberries comes together in less than 15 minutes. It is a great summertime appetizer to serve at your next dinner party. Or, you can be like me and just make it all for yourself to enjoy after a long day of work.

The best part about this recipe is that you can cook the brie right in the wooden packaging it comes in. Just remove the top wooden lid, slice the rind off the top of the brie and bake in the oven on a baking sheet. I serve it right out of the oven in the container.

    I’m all about spending less time in the kitchen this summer and more time outside doing fun things! I have a confession, I’ve never baked brie. I’ve eaten my fair share but never baked it myself. I really need to try it out with these balsamic roasted strawberries, looks amazing!

    Strawberries and balsamic vinegar is one of my all-time favorite flavor combinations, but throw brie into the mix…I’m salivating! Looks amazing 🙂

    I typically think of baked brie as a mostly fall food but why should it be relegated to only one part of the year! Love this spring/summer twist!

    This looks great, Ashley! I really love the smoothness and creaminess of brie. It pairs so well with juicy, slightly tart fruits like strawberries. I think I may have to pick up some strawberries and brie this weekend so I can make this. Pinned.

    Hope you have a good weekend, Ashley. 🙂

    OMFG. I can bake the brie in the container it comes in? How did I NOT know that? Guess you do learn something new every day, LOL. I make a version of this for Thanksgiving with a cranberry “chutney” and I’ve made one with blueberries… I am SO going to have to give this a try and thanks for the new info!
