Before I start, I want all to remember what this day is all about. I do realize that we all look forward to this holiday as the beginning of summer. As a kid, I knew it as the ending of the school year. Memorial Day is a day to remember and to honor those whom sacrificed their future for the rest of us to enjoy the modicum (I don’t use this word for sarcasm) of freedom.
We were invited to a potluck and were asked to bring appetizers. A favorite is baked Brie or Camembert. It is like a fondue in a small package and it is so simple to put together. If you make this make sure you bring a few because just one will not cut it. You’ll probably eat it all before you get there.
Boxes of Camembert or Brie cheese – I recommend 3 or more.
Garlic – about 1/2 a head for each box of cheese
Butter – about 1/2 a stick for each box of cheese
Artisan bread – I like to use Baguettes
Unbox the cheese and place in a baking dish with high sides. Add the butter and the peeled garlic. Heat in a oven at 300 to 350 degrees F. It will only take 15 to 30 minutes. Just bake till the cheese is melted, you will need to break open the outer crust to check the cheese.
