Frequently asked questions

Should I remove the rind?

No. While in some recipes, you can remove the rind, for this one you should cook the whole wheel. That way it holds the baked cheese inside the rind, so it does not just melt all over the place. Also, once it is cooked, the rind acts like a bowl to hold your dip.

Is the rind edible?

Eating the rind is perfectly safe and many people love the flavor. Some are repelled by the powdery texture, but the flavor is rich and nutty. Try breaking off a piece and dipping it into the cheese and strawberry-baked brie. This delicious appetizer cuisine is always a huge hit at parties.

Why did my brie turn out rubbery?

If you overcook your cheese, it will turn hard and rubbery. You should only cook it until the cheese is warm. Not until it is melted and runny. You should also check the temperature of your oven. Some ovens cook at a higher temperature than normal and that can cause it to be rubbery as well.

What are the nutrition facts in this recipe?

The nutrition information in this easy recipe depends a lot on what you use to dip in it or put it on. But each serving of the cheese and strawberry sauce has 199 calories, 33 mg of cholesterol, and 17 grams of fat with 8 grams of saturated fat. You also get 233 mg of sodium, 4 carbs, and 2 grams of sugar.

On the other hand, it also has 88 mg of calcium, 15 mg of vitamin C, 268 units of vitamin A, and 10 grams of protein. This yummy cheese also provides 144 mg of potassium, 2 grams of fiber, and 1 mg of iron.

How to store leftovers:

  • Store: You can store your leftover strawberry baked brie in an airtight container. It will stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to five days.

  • Freeze: Freezing brie cheese is not recommended.

  • Reheat: To reheat, place the brie in a microwave-safe dish and cook on medium heat for 30 to 45 seconds.

Recipe tips:

  • For uniform pieces, chop large strawberries in quarters and small strawberries in half.

  • Do not worry if your strawberry sauce is too watery when it comes out of the oven. It will thicken as it cools.

  • If the chips you are using keep breaking, simply use a butter knife to top your chips instead of dipping them.

  • The baking time will vary depending on the size of your brie cheese wheel. Ours was five inches in diameter.

  • The cheese will start hardening after a while. To fix this problem, just stick it in the microwave for 10 to 20 seconds and give it a good stir.

  • Make sure you do not overcook your cheese or it will get rubbery.

  • Do not get brie that is not ripened all the way. Unlike other fresh items, brie does not ripen after you take it home. You want one that is about one inch thick with a firm (but not hard) center.

  • Instead of honey, you can use agave or maple syrup.
