Just six ingredients are all I need to create an elegant appetizer perfect for entertaining. The tart cranberry compote pairs well with creamy Brie cheese.
What You Need:
(Makes: about 2 dozen or 24 servings)
1 cup of dried cranberries
1 cup of balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup of jellied cranberry sauce
1 tablespoon of sugar
1 loaf (1 pound) of French bread, cut into 1/2 inch slices
3 tablespoons of butter, melted
1/2 pound of Brie cheese, thinly sliced
What to Do:
STEP 1) In a small saucepan, combine the cranberries, vinegar, cranberry sauce and sugar. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened, about 12 minutes.
STEP 2) Brush the bottoms of bread with butter; place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake bread at 350 degrees for 1 to 2 minutes or until lightly toasted. Top the bread with Brie. Bake again for 4 to 6 minutes or until cheese is melted. Spoon the cranberry mixture over cheese, about 1 tablespoon on each.
STEP 3) Happy Holidays & Enjoy!
