I am sort of used to family diving in and appreciating what they are served in our home, but believe me, this caused a feeding frenzy. I kid you not. I almost didn’t get any but they called me from the kitchen to come quickly….it was almost gone.
- 1 1/2 tsp chili powder
- 1/8 tsp. cayenne
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder (not salt)
- 1/2 tsp. dry mustard
- 1/2 tsp. sugar
- 1 sourdough round loaf
- 1 tbsp. butter, room temperature
- 1 8 ounce round of Brie Cheese (we used triple cream)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and, in a small bowl, mix all the spices together.
Cut a circle in the top of the bread and remove the top. Remove the bread in the center large enough to accommodate the brie wheel and cut the bread into bite size pieces.
Butter the bread and sprinkle with 2 tsp. of the spice mixture. With a sharp knife, make 2 inch cuts at 1 inch intervals around the edge of the bread. Remove the rind from the Brie and place it in the bread. (the Brie not the rind, silly me…)
Sprinkle the remaining spice over the Brie and replace the bread top. (lid).
Bake about 25-30 minutes on a parchment lined cookie sheet. To serve, remove the top of the bread and break into bite-size pieces. Dip the bread in the hot Brie (being careful of course, not to burn your mouth).
Have napkins and small plates available and hope they leave you a piece. It will be completely gone…no crumbs left. Will our kids comment here?
