18-ounceround French-style brie
1/3cupsun-dried tomatoes , drained and chopped
1 garlic clovepressed or minced fine
1/4cuptoasted pine nuts
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Use a sharp knife to cut along the top inside edge of the round of brie, then remove the top rind. If the top is shaggy or uneven, don't worry, it will smooth as it bakes. Place the brie in a 6-8 ounce gratin baking dish or cast-iron pan. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
In a small bowl, mix the sun dried tomato with the pressed garlic clove and half of the basil and spoon on the hot brie. Sprinkle with toasted pine nuts and more basil. Serve hot with sliced sourdough baguette, bread sticks, crackers, or chunks of foccacia.
