I have a lot of brie wedges

What can I do with them? They were on sale and I bought 3. Can I freeze them. Give me some recipes.

    1. Brie makes the most amazing grilled cheese sandwiches. Seriously.

        i second this. i always use brie for grilled cheese. it melts wonderfully.

          A sandwich place makes a "Brie Beast" which has brie, roast beef and roasted red peppers all grilled on sourdough. Amazing.

            an item i love that is no longer on the menu at my favorite diner/dive type place: French melt-- Brie, swiss, ham (i tell them to replace it with chicken instead) and asparagus grilled on any kind of bread (cheddar cayenne for me!). So good!

        2. roast a head of garlic.
          cut the rind off all the wedges (easly to do if the cheese is really cold)

          in a food processor put the cheese, the roasted garlic and about a stick of butter (maybe more maybe less) and blend until all is incorporated.

          A little salt and pepper.

          once smooth you can use as a dip, mix into mashed potatos, but ontop of a baked potato, grilled cheese sammie, filling for a quesadilla...and you can freeze it

            I gained two pounds just reading that, and was filled with JOY. Brie is going on the market list for next week. Thanks.

              Just did what you said - bueno! Ate same, and the rest is in the freezer.

            2. I've made this apple-brie stuffed bread a few times... yum.

              1. I doubt they'd freeze well, but of all the "problems" to have, this is a pretty good one. ;)

                I made a ridiculously decadent french toast sandwich to enter in a recipe competition: Brie and apricot preserves between two slices of French toast (preferably brioche or something nice like that) dredged in ground almonds and fried in butter.

                It was nothing short of spectacular. Heart-healthy, no, but it was worth it.

                    Wow, that looks absolutely delicious!

                    Nothing original but I like brie burgers with mushrooms and caramelized onions or brie wrapped in phyllo dough, then served with apples, grapes and bread.
