Baked brie with red pepper jelly is sooo good! I didn’t put up any red pepper jelly but my daughter did. This is a delicious combination that takes your appetizers to the next level. Other times, I purchase Stonewell Kitchen red pepper jelly.
fall and football; thanksgiving too
Fall is a wonderful fun time to gather with friends and family to watch the game. \ College or pro, no matter. The food served does!
It is the perfect time for those delicious appetizers to be served for special gatherings. That just might turn into dinner too. Lots of excitement over a good game combined with those extra special dishes make for a extra fun gathering.
Who doesn’t love appetizers? Not only does fall mean football, it is also the season for family and friends to come together for Thanksgiving. Baked Brie with red pepper jelly is a delicious choice; so is a simple tray with cheese slices and rolled up cold cuts. Isn’t that a pretty presentation?
I serve more ‘small meals’ and appetizers during fall than just about any other time of the year.
Do you like to serve delicous yet simple small dishes? I know I do. Baked brie with red pepper jelly is one of our favorite. So is spinach artichole dip. Both are hot. I usually add at leasat one hot appetizer to the menu.
Often for us, this array of appetizers are served in lieu of lunch or for the interlude before a later special holiday meal during the Thanksgiving weekend or Christmas season.
Many times I have set out food prior to a concert or Christms Eve service so we can enjoy a little food before we go out. These special events start times would make being on time and a eating a meal before a frenzied effort to feed the family and get out the door on time. To avoid that when my children were small, I laid out a selction of hot and cold appetizers for us and guests.
It’s a tradition we continue today. Just keep it simple!
Baked Brie is one of our all time favorites. But like most appetizers we only have it a few times a year.
Baked Brie is maybe a little snazzier because well, it has a French name and you buy it from the fancy cheese section in the grocery store.
Use a cute baking dish. Mine is a Polish Pottery heart-shaped dish. There is a similar Polish pottery baking dish linked to Amazon below. No more heart dishes…sorry. (I am an Amazon affiliate. Any purchase you make are at not extra cost to you.)
I also linked a favorite jelly brand, Stonewall Kitchen for red pepper jelly!
