Marinated Brie

I'm heading to the cottage for a "Girly weekend" tomorrow and this is one of the appetizers that I'm bringing. It's very easy and you can easily double it and use a bigger wheel of brie for larger crowd.

This easy dish can be baked in the oven or on the BBQ. You can dress it up with different coloured peppers. Make sure you marinate the brie long enough for the flavours to mix together.
1 tbsp Lemon juice
1 clove Garlic, minced
1 tbsp Vegetable oil
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 Red pepper, finely chopped
1/4 tsp Black pepper
1 tbsp Fresh parsley, finely chopped
8 oz wheel Brie or Camembert cheese
Serve with Crackers or French bread

Oven-cooked
Preheat oven to 350F. Combine all ingredients except the cheese and crackers. Mix well. Place cheese wheel in a small, shallow glass dish and poke it full of holes with a fork. Pour marinade over cheese. Cover and let sit in the fridge over night, or at least for 3 hours. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until cheese just starts to bulge around the edges and centre is soft. Serve warm with crackers or French bread.

BBQ'd
Marinate brie as per instructions above. Preheat BBQ to medium (350F0. Place a piece of foil on the grill and poke holes in the foil with a skewer. Place cheese on foil. Heat just until cheese starts to bulge around the edges and centre is soft (about 15 minutes). Serve warm with crackers or French bread.
