When you serve it at your next get-together, your guests will be wowed at the presentation–and even more delighted when they taste this amazing baked brie. The sweet and savory combination of flavors can’t be beat.
It all starts with a wheel of brie cheese. We love serving brie because it pairs so well with a variety of other flavors and toppings. (Check out our Cranberry Baked Brie Dip as another example of how to prepare baked brie.)
Now, let’s get into the easy recipe.
Baked Brie With Garlic and Honey
All this deliciousness starts with a wheel of brie, honey, garlic, and olive oil. Rosemary sprigs will dress up the presentation.
To start, preheat your oven. Then, just cut some grooves in the brie, and stuff them with thinly-sliced garlic.
Next, pour the honey, and then the olive oil over the top of the brie making sure it gets into the grooves you’ve cut.
Add a few sprigs of rosemary to the top if you’d like. It makes for a little extra flavor and a nice presentation.
Pop it in the oven, and enjoy the warm and garlicky aroma as it bakes.
When the brie is soft and gooey in the center (about 15 to 20 minutes), it’s ready. You want a melted center but you don’t want the brie wheel to lose its shape.
Serve this Baked Brie with Garlic and Honey warm from the oven with your favorite hearty crackers or toasted baguette slices. It pairs well with fruit too–try apples or pears.
And, that’s all there is to it! Now you’ve got another fabulous appetizer recipe to add to your repertoire. This one is sure to be the highlight of any party!

How to Store & Reheat Your Baked Brie with Garlic and Honey
Baked brie tastes best right out of the oven.
Repeatedly cooling and reheating the brie can change the texture–not in a good way.
If you do have leftovers, let them cool, and then store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days.
For the best flavor, reheat baked brie in a 300° oven for about 15 minutes, or until the cheese softens.
You can also use the microwave, cooking in increments of 30-seconds until the cheese is warm and melty.
Baked Brie with Garlic and Honey
- 1 wheel of brie cheese 8 ounces
- 3-4 cloves of garlic thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Fresh rosemary sprigs optional
- Sliced baguette or crackers for serving
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
- Place the brie wheel on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or in a brie baker, if you have one.
- Using a small knife, make small cuts on the top of the brie. Insert the garlic slices into the grooves, distributing them evenly across the cheese.
- Drizzle the honey over the top of the brie, allowing it to seep into the grooves you've cut in the cheese.
- Drizzle the olive oil over the brie as well, to enhance the flavors and help with the baking process.
- If desired, place a few fresh rosemary sprigs on top of the brie to add an aromatic touch.
- Transfer the baking sheet or brie baker to the preheated oven, and bake for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until the brie is soft and gooey in the center.
- Keep an eye on the brie as it bakes to ensure it doesn't melt completely and lose its shape.
- Once baked, carefully remove the brie from the oven, and allow it to cool slightly before serving.
- Serve the baked brie with sliced baguette or crackers. Guests can scoop out portions of the warm, gooey cheese, and enjoy the wonderful combination of flavors from the garlic and honey.
