Honestly, I've tried to write a few intro paragraphs for this recipe but all I keep coming back to is the fact that the name should sell it all - I mean, a warm, gooey Brie covered in rich cinnamon sugar sautéed apples and pecans then topped with salty crumbled bacon, all from Trader Joe's and so, so easy to pull together - what more can I say!?

Trader Joe's Baked Bacon Apple Walnut Brie


Here's what you need, all purchased from Trader Joe's,

Ingredients:
2 Granny Smith Apples, peeled and diced
1 heaping tablespoon of Trader Joe's Brown Sugar and Cinnamon Butter Spread
1 Petit Brie Wheel
1/4 cup roughly chopped raw pecans
2 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled

For serving:
Crackers (my favorite are the Pita Bite Crackers from Trader Joe's)
fruit, berries, grapes and a sprig of fresh rosemary, for a pop of color

Method:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

Line a baking tray with tin foil, lay out two pieces of bacon, cook in oven until crisp.

Remove from oven, turn oven temperature down to 150 degrees. 

Peel, slice and dice the apples, add them to a skillet with the large tablespoon of the cinnamon sugar butter spread. Stir and cook them on medium low heat until they are soft.

Continue to stir occasionally to ensure the butter is evenly spread on the apples. If you're feeling generous, add a little more butter to really get things going. 

Once the apples are soft, add in the pecans, stir to coat pecans in the butter, turn off heat.

While the apples and pecans are warming together in buttery goodness, line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 

Slice off the top rind of the Brie, place on the parchment lined baking sheet and then into the warm oven

Heat Brie to your desired level of warmth/gooeyness. I left mine in for maybe 5 minutes.

Once warmed through, remove Brie from oven and transfer onto your serving dish 
(hint, I cut the parchment paper down and left it under the Brie, making it easier to transfer and ultimately clean up)

Top with warm apple and pecan mixture and then crumbled bacon. 

Serve immediately with crackers and fruit.

The salty bites of the bacon pair perfectly with the rich, gooey apples and are plain Heaven when served with fresh raspberries and crackers. I might just make myself one for dinner!
