A recipe title like that gives me a chick boner.

Garlic?  Check.

Cheese?  Check.

Carbs?  Check.

This is an easy and appetizer that takes very little hands-on time.   I’m all for the lazy hors d’oeuvres that look fancy, but don’t take much effort on my part.  And don’t think that brie is a hoity-toity cheese; I bought this wedge at Trader Joes for $3.65. Additionally, this recipe for Baked Brie and Roasted Garlic in Puff Pastry only uses one puff pastry sheet, and they come two to a box. Use the other sheet at a later date to make your own amazing (and fast) Savory Puff Pastry Sandwich Bake.

How to Make Baked Brie and Roasted Garlic in Puff Pastry

  1. Cut the top off the heads of garlic, and place in an oven-proof bowl lined with foil. Drizzle olive oil over the top – about 1/2 tsp or so. Tuck the foil up and over the garlic heads. Bake for 35 minutes at 400 degrees.  Let cool for about 25 minutes. You can also roast garlic in an Instant Pot, which is pretty rad.
  2. Lay out your puff pastry, and place the wedge of brie in the middle.

3. Squeeze the garlic bulbs over the cheese until the individual cloves come out.

It kind of looks like a dude’s bulge in Speedos, but you’ll be able to get past that because it is so delicious.

5. Bake uncovered at 400 degrees for 25 minutes.  Let sit for 15 minutes, and then serve with crackers and/or veggies.

 Oh, and Speedo bulge.  Just in case you know, you forgot.

  1. As I scrolled down I got to the pic of the wrapped brie and thought to myself, “That looks like a dude’s junk in a speedo.” Then I read your next line. Love it when you have those moments when you realize you’ve found your kind of people 🙂 Great recipe!

  2. lol. love how only you would be able to make that delicious recipe funny! Thanks!
    Seriously though, I’ve always wanted to try the brie-pastry appetizer, but never knew how you served it…b/c most recipes don’t say or show you!

  3. I am not gonna be look at a hunk of brie the same again…..THANKS! =)

  4. You are too freakin’ funny!!!

    This looks awesome. I love Brie in any shape, size or form. I love doing the wrapped brie, cuz it’s so stinkin’ easy, and like you said, looks pretty impressive. I like to sometimes put a layer of orange marmalade, or apricot jam over it before wrapping it. Yum!!

  5. That looks amazing and is my kind of dish!! We have a Trader Joe’s in Houston so I am jotting this down now and will be making this for Christmas Eve! Or Christmas Day evening with wine and a good movie!

  6. Haha! You crack me up. We used to make this in college when we had “fancy” wine parties. This stuff is delicious. It is also good with mustard.

  7. Hmmmm. looks yummy and easy too!
    and the Speedo-bulge will get me thru the rest of this craazy day!

  8. hmmmmm so going to try that!

  9. If Alton Brown says it’s ok to use frozen puff pastry you should never need to apologize for it.

  10. Mmmm… Sounds so tasty! Thank you for the great recipe! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

  11. I laughed out loud…Speedo bulge ….hahhaaa…so funny and don’t you know when I serve this on Christmas Eve, I’ll be giggling. 🙂

  12. Holy COW!!! How did I miss this one? YUM YUM YUMMO!!!!!
    And yes…never apologize for frozen puff pastry…..nobody else does!

  13. I TOTALLY want to try this deliciousness! However, I’ve never had brie! I’ve always been scared to try it! There are some NASTY cheeses out there! Which kind of brie did you get for this? Apparently not all brie is the same. 🙂 Thanks!

    • Just a normal mild brie would be fine. A good “starter” brie is the President brand found in normal grocery stores. It isn’t very fancy and real cheese snobs will look down their noses at you, but who the heck cares. Great way to try it out at a low price point.

      • I picked up the ingredients while shopping today! I can’t wait to serve this with our popcorn tomorrow night! (Our popcorn dinner night is always on Sunday! One of fave nights of the week!) This week will be EXTRA special!

  14. You had me at puff pastry! Looks really good and easy!
