Baked Green Hill

Baked Brie

Traditionally, a baked brie is wrapped in pastry or phyllo dough, but I'm a bit of a purist. Green Hill is such a beautiful cheese, it doesn't need much dressing up. Pair it with ingredients that really showcase the cheese and bake it, that's it. It's a very simple recipe that yields very impressive results. I hope the Sweet Grass Dairy family and their happy Jersey cows will aprove.

1 round Green Hill
Fig preserves or honey
Fresh rosemary, finely chopped
1 Slow Dough baguette, toasted and sliced

Heat oven to 350. Line a glass pie dish with parchment paper. Place the cheese round on the dish and top with preserves or your favorite honey. Lastly, top with fresh rosemary. Bake for about 10 minutes. Some cheese may bubble out and the preserves or honey will be nice and caramelized on top. Serve warm out of the oven with toasted baguette. So much of the flavor is in the bloomy rind, I encourage you to eat every last bit!
