“Baked” Brie with Raspberries, Cooked on the Grill

This grilled baked Brie isn’t so much a recipe as it is a method for grilling brie. Find out all you need to know right here.

Did you know that the Brie cheese you buy in France is very different from the kind you get in the U.S.? That’s because the cheese is made from unpasteurized milk in France and is allowed to age. The Brie imported into the U.S. and the Brie-style cheese made in the U.S. use pasteurized milk. It is therefore stable and doesn’t age in the same way.*

When I was in France I only had Brie one time. It was very pungent. But I’ve had real French Brie many times when visiting my in-laws in the UK and it was similar to what I’ve eaten in North America. So, whether it’s always different or not, I’m not sure. If you go to France, try it and report back to me. I’d love to learn more.

Today’s recipe is for a Baked Brie with Raspberries. Except it’s not baked. It’s cooked on the grill. I probably should have called it Grilled Brie but I wanted to get the point across that it’s similar in flavor (rich and buttery) and texture (oozing and gooey) to the Baked version you’re more familiar with.

Grilled Raspberry Brie

I hesitate to call this a real recipe. You just put berries on top of the cheese. More than a recipe, this is a method for grilling Brie. You can take the instructions here and apply them to any basic Baked Brie recipe. Take a wheel of brie, put it on foil, add toppings and grill until bulging.

To serve, transfer the whole thing, foil and all, to a serving plate. Don’t try to get the foil out from under. It’s not going to happen without a toppling-of-gushing-brie mess-of-an-event. It’ll still be tasty though.

Caution your guests that the foil is going to be hot. But it cools down quickly. Use spoons or knives to cut into the Mrie and to scoop melted cheese and jammy warm berries onto crackers or baguette. And you’ll be having a happy day whether you’re in France or in the U.S.. That’s for sure!

  3. Be still my heart. What a winning combination! It has to be out of sight. I didn’t know that about French Brie and US Brie.
    I guess I will have to go to France and check it out.
