Back when I lived in Charleston, I fell in love with Brie cheese. I kind of had to. I worked at Whole Foods at the cheese counter, and it was always in full supply. For Christmas, we would take the middle out of triple cream brie and add cranberry jam to the middle. 

So, what happened to the middle? We were told to throw it out! Instead, I took it home and got creative, thinking about what to make with brie. 

A lot of times, this cheese is served during holidays and celebrations on a cheese plate and you may have leftovers. Instead of throwing them away, try out these easy recipes with brie cheese!
