Garlic Basil Brie

by Kelli H. on October 18, 2012

My Aunt Shellie first shared this recipe with our family a few years back. We’re the kind of family that always has amazing and abundant appetizers when we have get-togethers. We should really just bring appetizers and forget the main course. The story goes that Shellie was at the store and was going to bring brie and bread, but before she checked out, a lady in line told her this simple recipe to make the brie even better. Shellie listened, and then made the recipe when she got to my Nanny’s house. We all immediately fell in love, and haven’t stopped making it. Nowadays my mom tends to bring it, and I always make it when I have people over. It’s such a crowd pleaser and takes about 5% effort, which is always nice.

I love simple but delicious appetizers like this! My family’s similar – there are always so many great appetizers before a big meal that I’m usually full by dinnertime!

When people share recipes…then more people can enjoy them too! I am glad that lady did.
