Equipment

  • (optional) Cheese Baker or small cocotte sized to the round baked or small au gratin dish (Mimi uses a small cocotte)

Ingredients

  • 1 round Brie cheese removed from container with rind entact
  • 6 figs halved or quartered
  • generous drizzle honey to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 250 F.
  • Place round of Brie either on a salt slab or in an appropriately-sized oven safe dish for later serving such as a small cocotte, cheese baker, or au gratin dish.
  • Bake Brie in oven 25-30.
  • Remove from oven and drizzle with honey.
  • Let the cheese rest for 5-10 minutes.
  • Then serve with the sliced figs, possibly one more small drizzle of honey (depending on your taste), and slices of crusty bread or crackers.

Notes

Note here that this is plenty for 8 people. Unless they are French. Then it is probably 2.
For Keto eaters who are relatively fat-adapted, the amount of sugar in this drizzle of honey and a few figs are probably not going to throw you out of ketosis. But be advised that for diabetics, this may not be the best rendition of Baked Brie for you.
For an interesting variation, you might try baking your Brie on a salt slab like this Natural Himalayan Salt Block from Zenware. The slight salt infusion to the Brie paired with the honey and figs is surprisingly wonderful.
Baking this in a small cocotte or cheese baker is preferable if you have one. Otherwise, bake it in an au gratin that you will serve it in or bake it on a sheet of parchment on a baking tray so you can more easily transfer it to a serving dish and not lose any bakeover.
