Brie Cheese & Sun Dried Tomatoes
This Brie Cheese appetizer is a beautiful dip introduced to us by our good friends, Joe and Cindy.
A few years back Joe and Cindy stayed with us in Italy for 6 weeks. I was worried that maybe our friendship wouldn’t survive a 6-week visit, but I need not have worried — Joe and Cindy were the PERFECT house guests, and all of us were sad to see them leave.
Picture this — every day Jeff and I were greeted with an appetizer and glass of wine upon our arrival after work. Heaven! We were treated to so many tasty home-cooked dinners and stories of their daily adventures during those 6 weeks. We’re trying to convince them to visit us again!
Aside from the amazing combination of flavors and textures, what I like about this dish is how quickly it comes together. I can prep it 95% in advance. Once my guests arrive, I place it in the microwave until the cheese melts and serve it with sliced baguettes.
