You know that creepy neighbor who somehow knows a little too much about your personal business?

The one who remarks, You’re going out to dinner again?, when he catches you going out dressed in something other than jeans in the early evening.

And who asks with surprise when you bring a bag of apples home on a random Wednesday, You needed more apples already?

And who tells your husband, You talk way too much on the phone, man.

Yeah, that guy.

(It can’t be just me who has a creepy neighbor situation going on.)

But when you make Baked Brie with Honeyed Grapes and devour it for Sunday brunch with a friend and the creepster later asks you what you made because he claims he could smell it outside, you realized he’s just redeemed himself a little bit.

How?, you ask. It’s not for the compliment he gave you in asking for your recipe. No, you’re just grateful when you realize that he didn’t knock on the door and invite himself in for brunch, lol. Ugh.

After I made Jessica’s (from How Sweet It Is) recipe for Roasted Blueberry-Basil Brie (check out my pic of it in this post) from her cookbook Seriously Delish, I got a real taste for warm and gooey brie.

I just happened to have a wheel of it in my cheese drawer and a bag of grapes in my crisper and a friend coming over for brunch. There was no fighting fate; I didn’t even stand a chance.

Here’s What You’re Going to Love About this Recipe

  • This recipe brings out the best in brie. Even if your cheese isn’t top-quality, after a quick stint in the oven you’d never know it!
  • Gooey, melted brie. If you’re any kind of cheese-lover, it goes without saying that deliciously decadent, rich, melty brie cheese will steal your heart.
  • Honeyed grapes. Let me give you little a tip on this one: double the warm honeyed grape part of this recipe. Not for use on the cheese in this dish, but for use on everything. Like yogurt, ice cream, pancakes, waffles, crepes, oatmeal, toast, and croissants. (Or, you know, bathing in.) This grape sauce is magic.
  • Minimum effort, maximum results. This appetizer is as easy to make as it is impressive-looking! Get ready to wow your guests and have them ask you for the recipe.
  • No “en croute” to fiddle with. In this easy recipe, a wheel of brie cheese is baked as-is with no pastry wrapped around the outside. Not only is it easier to make, but this significantly reduces the carbs.
  • Low carb-friendly. To cut the carbs down, omit the honey in the topping and use 2 tablespoons water + 2 tablespoons granulated monk fruit/allulose sweetener.

Step by Step Tutorial for How to Make Baked Brie

how to make baked brie
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Once hot, unwrap the brie and place it onto an oven-safe baking dish. Bake 12 minutes.
  2. Add the grapes, honey, vinegar, and salt to a small saucepan over medium heat.
  3. Cover the saucepan and cook until the grapes are slightly softened, about 6 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Uncover the saucepan, and cook until the syrup is thickened, stirring occasionally, about 2 minutes. This is how the grapes will look when they’re done.
  4. Carefully top the brie with the honeyed grapes.
  5. Sprinkle on the walnuts and serve hot!

Variations on This Recipe

  • Vinegar. Instead of apple cider vinegar, you can use red wine vinegar or balsamic vinegar.
  • Fruit. If grapes aren’t your thing, any number of different fruit works well here! I’ve made it with apple (using this method), pear, and plum with good results.
  • Cheese. This recipe also works great with a wheel of Camembert cheese.

Tips for Making this Baked Brie Recipe with Honeyed Grapes

  • Make the cheese right before you want to serve it. Whenever possible, I like to have the option to make something ahead of time. But baked brie is just one of those things that’s best served hot right after it’s made.
  • But you can make the honey roasted grapes ahead of time. Once the roasted grapes are made, let them cool to room temperature and store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
  • Have everything else ready for serving. Once brie is baked, it waits for no one! You have about 20 minutes while it’s hot, gooey, and delicious so it’s helpful to have everything else ready for serving.

Baked Brie FAQs

Can I Prepare Baked Brie Ahead of Time?

For this recipe, I recommend heating the brie right before you want to serve it. This is because the cheese is best served hot, and if you reheat it once it cools, the texture changes.

However, you can make the honeyed grapes ahead of time and store it covered in the fridge for up to 1 week. You can reheat the grapes in the microwave or on the stovetop, adding a splash more water if necessary.

How Long Does Baked Brie Stay Soft?

Baked brie will stay soft and spreadable for about 20 minutes at room temperature after it’s baked.

Do You Cut the Top Off Brie Before Baking?

That depends on the recipe. For this recipe, keep the rind on when you bake the brie.

Some people don’t enjoy the rind. However, the rind is edible, and you can eat it along with the cheese if you don’t mind it.

What Goes Good with Baked Brie?

Baked brie goes well with something crunchy to spread the cheese on. Here are a few ideas:

  1. 4 stars
    It was an amazing appetizer, however I do recommend cutting the vinegar just a bit. My grapes could have been a lot less sweet but overall it was delicious. Thank youuu

  2. At what temperature do you set the oven?

    1. Lauren, Sorry about that! The oven gets set to 350F and I’ve updated the recipe above.

  3. Thankfully we don’t have any weird neighbors (yet) but when one person cooks in our building, you can smell it on every floor…so I’m betting someone will come knocking when I make this!

  4. Very festive and so impressive Faith!

  5. Faith, you’re too much…I love/love this recipe, and your neighbor story OMG, stop it! There’s just so much crazy in the world, I’ve got one who “cleans up” after me, well really “before me”…which is sweet but NOT, as where he puts my garbage & recycle bins, I can’t get them out! So um, please don’t HELP me…I can’t get them outa the rocks…
    I love ya girl, your old buddy in Vegas, Andrea

  6. Hahaha oh my, what a neighbor! Let’s hope he doesn’t track down your blog… ;) Love this baked brie, I’d have a hard time not inhaling more than my share!

  7. You definitely have got me hungry after seeing these delicious images.. that melting brie looks to die for! Wish I had some to devour right now!

  8. This Looks AMAZING!!!!

  9. This looks like the most amazing thing ever! I think I’ll make it for a Thanksgiving appetizer, perhaps with a brunch test run beforehand because cheese for breakfast is the best.

  10. With the holidays coming up, I cannot imagine a more perfect dish to bring! YUM!
