• 1 round of brie, about 4 to 5 inches in diameter
  • Various bottoms of jars such as olives, pickled vegetables, capers, roasted red peppers, sweet or hot pepper rings
  • Slices of baguette or whole grain bread, whichever you prefer


Serves: 4 appetizer-size servings


Cut the top rind off of the brie. Place on a microwave-safe plate and microwave on high for about 1 minute.

While the cheese is in the microwave, take all of the pickled and/or jarred vegetables from the bottom of the jars that you have and roughly chop them up -- you want about 1 cup total of chopped goodness.

Remove the cheese from the microwave and top the slightly melted cheese with the chopped vegetables. Spread on the bread and enjoy!
