Recipe: Fancified cheese 'n crackers


  • Is Brie your favorite fromage?
  • Do you prefer a snack/hors d'oeuvres that incorporates both sweet and salty elements?
  • Are you blanking on ideas of what dish to bring to a holiday party?

...Then I just may have the perfect recipe (if you can call it a recipe) for you!

I've experimented with different jams and preservers, chilled vs. room-temperature Brie cheese, and imitation versions of Carr's Whole Wheat crackers. After much trial and error, I finally have this quick-gourmet snack down to a science. This has become my favorite, no-hassle hors d'oeuvres to bring to parties (not to mention my favorite indulgent snack to nosh on at home).


Arrange crackers on a platter. Depending on your preference of presentation, you may either slice the cheese (with minimal rind) and place atop the cracker, or keep the Brie and crackers separated from each other (guests can add their desired amount of cheese). Serve the preserves in a small dish with a caviar spoon. Top each cracker with a dollop of preserves and a very light pinch of sea salt. Enjoy!
