Baked Brie w/ Cranberry Relish & Figs
I make extra cranberry relish during the holidays so I can have leftovers for recipes like this.
I love it best on grilled cheese, so why not swipe some on top of a wheel of brie or camembert?
I used to make a version with honey mustard and pistachios back in the 80's. This is one of the few recipes I use my microwave for.
You can assemble it ahead of time, then plop in the nuke for 45 seconds and you have a great holiday appetizer.
Slice off a thin layer of the top rind of the cheese.
Spread with some cranberry relish. Here is my tried and true recipe (click on link).
I topped mine with chopped dried figs, chopped pistachios and walnuts.
Top with some orange zest.
Place in the middle of a microwave safe plate and nuke for 30-45 seconds. You can keep reheating this as you go.
Serve with apples or crackers.
I could eat the whole thing.
