Looking for an appetizer that you can make for any occasion? Something easy, tastes great, and looks impressive. This is my ‘go-to’ appetizer. Brie with Sundried Tomatoes has a buttery flavor, creamy texture, and intense sweet-tart tomato flavor. Your guests will love it.
The brie also looks pretty on a Christmas plate, and the red and green of the sundried tomatoes and parsley accentuate the holiday theme.
But don’t just serve Brie with Sundried Tomatoes during the holidays. I make it for every party I host. And why is that? I prepare this appetizer because it can be made in advance, it’s easy to make, and everyone loves it. What can be more perfect?
Brie with Sun Dried Tomato Ingredients
Of course, you need Brie. Brie becomes softer and creamier as it ripens, closer to the expiration date. To cut off the rind, the firmer Brie will be much easier to handle. So, the expiration date should be at least a month away.
Don’t forget the parsley, Parmesan, sundried tomatoes, garlic, and basil.

How to make Brie with Sundried Tomatoes
Using a bread knife, cut the rind off of a wheel of Brie, the top, bottom and edge.
Next, combine all ingredients into a small bowl (except the Brie). I used the OXO 1.5 quart mixing bowl with the rubber bottom and grip.
Spread the sundried tomato mixture on your wheel of Brie. You can make this 24 hours in advance and keep it in the refrigerator until you are ready. Remove the Brie from the refrigerator about 30 minutes before serving. This Brie with Sundried Tomatoes tastes great, looks impressive, and you can serve it at any party. I do!
