4 people made this
3 rashers bacon
1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
1 (250g) round brie
2 to 3 tablespoons fig jam
1 egg, lightly beaten
Method Prep:10min › Cook:25min › Ready in:35min
In a frying pan over a medium heat, add the bacon and cook until crisp. Let cool then crumble into small pieces.
Preheat oven to 175 C / Gas 3/4.
Roll out puff pastry, large enough to create a parcel to encase the brie. Slice brie in half horizontally and place one half in the middle of the puff pastry. Spread fig jam on top of the brie, sprinkle with bacon and set the other brie piece on top. Fold up puff pastry to form a bag around the cheese and seal it together with some egg.
Set the brie parcel on a baking tray lined with baking parchment and bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes until the pastry is crisp and golden brown. Remove from the oven and serve.
