Baked Brie with Roasted Garlic & Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Post by Hippieforever99 » Thu Feb 05, 2009 5:28 pm

1 whole head garlic
1 sprig fresh rosemary
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 (12-ounce) of brie cheese
1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil drained and cut into thin strips
3 tablespoons finely shredded fresh basil
apple slices
Garnish: Sprigs of fresh basil or rosemary, imported green and black olives

Preheat oven/grill to 375*F (190*C).
Cut off 1/4 inch of pointed end of head of garlic. Place cut side up in a piece of aluminum foil. Place rosemary on top. Bring sides of foil up to make a deep bowl, but do not enclose garlic completely. Pour olive oil over top of garlic. Bake for 40-45 minutes in preheated oven or grill. Squeeze garlic so that the cloves pop out of their papery jackets. They should be creamy. Smash them and spread on top of brie (including some of the rosemary). Place brie in ovenproof dish. Top with tomatoes. Increase oven/grill temperature to 400F. Bake brie until warm and softened about 13 to 18 minutes. If topping is getting too browned cover loosely with aluminum foil during last portion of baking. Sprinkle slivers of fresh basil on top. Surround with apple slices. Garnish with sprigs of fresh herbs and drained imported olives.
