Fried Brie... eating all my favourites till I can!...

Love this dish. Love fried Brie. Unfortunately I don't eat it a lot as I would be a Hippo in no time - unfortunately usually what's tastes great isn't the best for us... Well form time to time you can make yourself 'a present' ;) especially now that my Baby is due in 2 weeks and after that no more fried/grilled/greasy things for me, no more spicy food etc as I intend to breast feed... So now I'm easting what I can, until I can :D Fried Brie is great with a little bit of salad (balsamic dressing works well) on the side and a crouton - makes perfect lunch. If you have a cranberry jam/chutney you have to eat it with fried Brie - trust me on that!

How to make it...

- 1 Brie (round, square - whatever you have which is good for one person)
- 1 beaten egg
- flour and breadcrumbs for coating
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil for frying

Dredge the Brie in the flour, then dip into the beaten egg, then dip into the breadcrumbs. Dip into the egg and breadcrumbs twice more to ensure full coating. Heat the pan and pour the oil. When it's hot place your Brie on the pan and fry on each side till golden brown and till you can feel it's nicely melted inside. Take of the pan and serve immediately.
You can also deep fry it but I prefer to shallow fry - less greasy and in my opinion tastes better too.



  1. ta panierka jest fantastyczna...!

  2. I want to make this for Xmas.
    What is the temperature you recommend for the brie?
    - straight out of fridge?
    - room temp?
    - chill before frying?

    1. I would panne it when cold, from the fridge, as it's easier to handle, because it's "stiffer". For frying I would have it at room temperature, it will melt inside quicker and better. Don't have the pan too hot, as it will burn before it has a chance to melt.
      Smacznego, Anula.
