Grilled Brie with Strawberry Wine Sauce and Honey



We bought a small grill on a whim and have been enjoying using it during this last half of summer. I found this recipe on Half Baked Harvest's website and adapted it to the ingredients I already had on hand. This would be delicious with any berry and you can substitute whatever alcohol you would like to use instead.

Grilling the brie added a lovely depth of flavor and this was such an easy recipe to put together. Dave thought the grilled bread was a nice accompaniment to the grilled brie. He didn't think this would have been as good with just toasted bread, as the grilled breaded added more flavor.

Adapted from Half Baked Harvest.

Ingredients: 
-2 tablespoons honey
-4 sprigs fresh thyme
-pinch of flaky sea salt
-1 (8 ounce) brie wheel
-Cooking spray
-1 cup sliced strawberries
-2 tablespoons white wine
-toasted or grilled bread, for serving

Add the sliced strawberries and wine to a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Remove from the heat and set aside.

Preheat the grill and spray the wheel of brie with cooking spray and sprinkle with sea salt. Dave felt it would be best to put the wheel of brie in the vegetable basket as a way to easily flip the brie.

Place the brie on the grill and grill for 2-3 minutes per side, when it is time to grill the second side, make sure to flip the brie carefully. Once the brie has been grilled on both sides remove it from the grill and serve immediately topped with the strawberry sauce, and drizzled with honey. Serve with toasted or grilled bread.
