Last Minute Holiday Appetizer: Brie w/ Cranberry Relish

If you are desperate and need one more quick appetizer for tonight, hurry out to the supermarket and buy a small wheel of French Brie.

Slice off the top rind and place in a microwaveable dish or pie plate.

You can use the leftover cranberry relish from Thanksgiving (it stays for 2 months in the fridge), or some nice fig jam or honey mustard and sprinkle with pistachio nuts or almonds. The world is your oyster.

Microwave for about 30 seconds on medium (depending on the strength of your microwave oven), you don't want the sides to cave, you just want the middle to be soft and oozy.

Decorate with some fresh herbs and serve with crackers.

See, you are the hostess with the mostess.

Have a wonderful Christmas!

Thanks Stacey for your 'delicious' blog! I have made several of your recipes and each one has delighted our tastebuds! We live in the hills of northern Idaho with limited choices of good restaurants, so gourmet has to come from our kitchen. We grow a big garden with a lot of the same veggies you two grow. Thanks again and Heavenly blessings for a joyous Christmas! Cathy R
