Whenever you need a quick and tasty appetizer or snack, grab some brie and bake it! Baked brie does miraculous things – the outer rind holds in all the melty goodness and then, when you cut into it, it oozes slowly out all warm and gooey. Slather it onto grilled bread or crackers, and gobble it up. Make it even better with a sweet and tangy topping that brings in a savory element to balance the richness of the cheese. Double cream brie – double yum!

This Baked Brie with Apple Ginger Chutney recipe couldn’t be any easier. The brie will keep unopened in your fridge for a while (a good week or two), and the apple ginger chutney can be made a few days ahead of time. Then all you need to do is bake your brie, top it and serve it with Sourdough Crackers or your favorite crackers! Easy peasy!

What you’ll love about baked Brie with Apple Ginger Chutney


  • It’s a quick, easy, and delish appetizer or snack!
  • You can make the chutney ahead of time.
  • It’s sweet, savory, gooey, and oh-so-good!

Chutney Vs. Compote

What’s the difference between chutney and compote? They’re both made with fruit, so what’s the difference? Chutneys are fruit cooked with vinegar, spices and often a savory element like garlic or ginger (or both). Compotes are essentially fruit cooked in a sweetened liquid (sugar syrup).

Ingredients

  • Brie – I like double cream brie but use whatever you’ve got or can find.
  • Apple – 1 large apple; look for a tarter apple like Granny Smith, Courtland, or Braeburn.
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Shallot – You’ll need about 2 tablespoons of minced shallots.
  • Ginger – Fresh ginger, not ginger powder.
  • Garlic – 1 clove.
  • Butter – Salted butter or add a pinch of salt to the finished chutney.
  • Honey
  • Fresh thyme – Just a pinch.

How To Make The Best Baked Brie with Apple Ginger Chutney

For a full list of ingredients and instructions, please scroll down to the recipe near the end of this page.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350-F and unwrap the brie from the packaging.
  2. Combine the butter, diced apple, apple cider vinegar, shallot, ginger, and garlic in a small pan and cook over low heat until the shallot is tender and the apples are softened.
  3. Add the honey and a pinch of fresh thyme.
  4. Adjust the seasoning and cool a bit while the brie is baking.
  5. Place the brie in a small baking dish – or a cute ceramic brie baker – and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the brie feels very squishy if you gently press the top of it.
  6. Remove the brie from the oven and top it with half the apple ginger chutney, reserving the other half for adding extra at the table.
  7. Serve and enjoy!

What To Serve With Baked Brie

Crackers of any type are the perfect bottom for this tasty topping. You can also use:

  • Grilled or even just plain baguette slices
  • Pita chips
  • Bagle chips
  • Sesame crackers
  • or to keep this low-carb baked brie, celery sticks. Celery and brie is delish!
  • And for dessert, try festive pumpkin pie bars!

Chef Jenn’s Tips

  • Use an alligator chopper to get finely diced apples in a hurry.
  • The apple ginger chutney makes about 1.5 cups which is enough for a 4-6 ounce wheel of brie plus a bit extra. Double the apple chutney if you use more brie.
  • Don’t cut into the brie until you’re ready to serve – it’ll start to ooze out immediately!
  • The nice thing about a brie baker is that it keeps the brie warm and gooey for a while.
  • Put out a selection of crackers and bread for your guests to mix-and-match.

    Ummm wow this is just exploding with flavor! Paired perfectly with seed crackers and some sparkling, which was just lovely with the flavors from the chutney and the creaminess from the cheese.
