Garlic Brie Bread Bowl

by Thursday, July 26, 2018
2 sourdough bread boules (round)
a large wheel of a favorite brie (8-12oz triple cream)
olive oil
*1 head of garlic

*Roasted Garlic (optional step)
Pre-heat oven to 425
Cut top off of garlic head, place in a square of foil, drizzle with olive oil, close up foil and bake for 20 -ish minutes.
Let sit and cool enough to handle, then squeeze roasted garlic out into a small bowl.

Assemble Brie Bowl
  • Cut out the center of one of the boules to create a bowl, cut that removed center piece and the other boule into chunks good for dipping (1"-1.5" chunks)
  • Brush olive oil all around the interior bread bowl
  • *Smash and rub roasted garlic around interior -or- smash 3-4 fresh cloves of garlic, rub them around the interior of the boule, then chop up roughly and set aside.
  • Cut brie wheel into 1-2" chunks (rind on or off, as you wish) and dump that plus your choice of garlic into the bread bowl. You can add some herbs and spices here if you like, such as rosemary, thyme, herbes de Provence, etc.
  • Brush outside of boule with some olive oil as well. Place bread lid on top. Wrap boule in foil.
  • Bake 30-40 minutes, checking in the last 10 minutes or so to see how the melting is coming along. Bake until melted and bubbly. Serve with bread chunks for dipping.
