Have you ever had Brie cheese? Do you even have an idea of what is tastes like? If not, this may help give you an idea of its taste and consistency.

Well, Patty Millay- from Owensboro, KY- has come up with a recipe that celebrates Brie is all of its glory. Here's how to make Bread Baked Brie with Cranberry, a dish that swims in all the glory of Fall and is perfect for your Thanksgiving table.

From Patty:

Thanksgiving is upon us and that puts me in my annual quandary -- to cranberry or not to cranberry.  Cranberries are a traditional Thanksgiving food but not something that I really enjoy.  This recipe incorporates that tradition in a fresh and delicious way!

This makes an excellent appetizer for your holiday guests and will be loved at your next potluck or office luncheon!

I large loaf of unsliced Italian Bread
16 ounces of Brie (take off the rind)
3/4 cup of Jellied Cranberry Sauce
1/3 cup Dried Cranberries
1/2 cup Chopped Pecans
1/3 cup Brown Sugar
1 1/2 cup Melted Butter (Kerry Gold is best)
1 teaspoon Thyme leaves


Cut the center of the bread out to create a bread bowl.  The center of the bread will be great to add to your dressing.  Patty says, "Some call it stuffing but it's dressing at our house."

Remove the rind from the Brie and smear it into the bread bowl.  Add the Jellied Cranberry Sauce and spread it over the cheese.  Top with dried cranberries.

Add the Brown Sugar and Chopped Pecans to the melted butter and pour the mixture over the bread bowl.

Take a knife and make small cuts on the outside of the bread bowl to make it easy to tear a piece away.  Take the remaining melted butter and mix with Thyme.  Brush the exterior of the bread bowl with the butter mixture - be sure to get butter in every nook and cranny.  Bake at 350* for 25 minutes.

This will be a cheesy, sweet and delicious dish and your guests will be coming back for more!
