What Are Some Recipes That Use Brie Cheese?

Some recipes that use Brie cheese as an ingredient include a warm Brie with fig and pistachio tapenade recipe, an open-faced Brie, apple and arugula sandwich recipe, and a shrimp and Brie linguine recipe. These recipes are available on BHG.com, FineCooking.com and MyRecipes.com, respectively.

To make warm Brie with fig and pistachio tapenade, bake a wheel of Brie cheese in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for several minutes to warm it thoroughly. Gently cook chopped roasted pistachio nuts, chopped dried figs and honey in a saucepan for two minutes, stirring to coat the nuts and figs well. Place Brie on a platter, then top it with the sweet nutty mixture and a touch of sea salt.

To make open-faced Brie, apple and arugula sandwiches, broil bread slices in the oven until golden brown on one side. Spread Dijon mustard on the other side and layer with baby arugula, apple slices, salt and black pepper before crowning with slices of Brie cheese. Broil the sandwiches for two minutes or until the Brie softens.

To make shrimp and Brie linguine, mix cubed Brie cheese, chopped sun-dried tomatoes with oil, chopped fresh tomatoes and chopped pitted olives in a bowl. Stir in minced garlic cloves, chopped basil, black pepper and olive oil, then cover the mixture for one hour. Boil linguine in salted water. Two minutes before it reaches the ideal texture, add shrimp and finish off the cooking. Combine linguine and shrimp with the Brie mixture and serve with grated Parmesan cheese.
