I picked up my ingredients for this baked brie appetizer at my local The Fresh Market. I asked the deli employee what a good salami would be to go alongside a sweetly baked brie and he suggested this salame di Parma.

It is SO good, I’m glad I asked for a recommendation!

So, I know what you may be thinking… cheese, walnuts, honey, and salami? Am I crazy?

Yes, a little crazy, admittedly, but I know a thing or two about food and this is just one of those times where you need to trust me.

Creamy, warm brie, sweet honey, salty salami, and a little nutty crunch from the walnuts and I swear you will be making this for every get-together!

Of course, like I said, this is totally customizable!

Baked Brie Appetizer Alternatives and Add-Ons:

Use a larger wheel of brie, just make sure to roll out the puff pastry into about 12×12 inches, then follow the steps the same.

Use other toppings such as caramelized onions, roasted garlic, crumbled bacon, cranberry sauce, pepper jelly, with jam, the list goes on and on!

You don’t have to place more toppings on the top of the baked brie, I just thought it made for a nice presentation. You can stuff everything inside instead!
