Honey Chili Brie

It’s the new year and one thing I will never give up is cheese. I love cheese, I love all cheeses; stinky, sweet, salty, all of them. Brie is one of my favorites, it’s creamy and melty, and you can incorporate so many different flavors with brie. I love combining heat and sweet and this honey chili brie is the perfect way to do that. Serve with crackers or crostinis.

Ingredients

  • Honey
  • 1 TSP Fresh Thyme, can use dried
  • 1 TSP Red Pepper Flakes
  • Brie

Let’s Get Cooking

Preheat the oven to 350F

Cut diagonal lines in the brie and place in a brie baker or on a lined baking sheet

Sprinkle the thyme + red pepper flakes over the brie, getting them into the cross-hatches. Drizzle the honey over top

Bake uncovered for about 15-20 minutes or until the brie is melty and bubbling.

Let cool for a few minutes before diving in!

Mac + Cheese

Everyone loves Mac + Cheese, it’s heaven in a bite. I have been in search of the best mac + cheese recipe, I need it to be overly cheesy, with strong flavors, and no soggy ass noodles. It looks like I finally found it! Recipe is from Stove Top Kisses, she has a wonderful video of the whole process on her page as well as so many other delicious recipes! Enough chit-chat let’s get into her recipe!

Ingredients

  • 4 Cups Chicken Stock – enough to be able to boil your noodles in
  • 1 Package of Elbow macaroni or whatever noodle you prefer
  • 1 Stick of Butter, cut into smaller pieces
  • 3/4 Cup Sour Cream
  • 2 TSP Paprika
  • 2 TSP Garlic Powder
  • 2 TSP Onion Powder
  • 1 TSP Salt + Pepper
  • 1 Cup Cheddar Cheese + extra
  • 1 Cup Mozzarella Cheese + extra
  • 1 Cup Provolone Cheese + extra
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 1/2 Cup Heavy Cream
  • 2 Cups Whole Milk

Let’s Get Cooking

Preheat the oven to 375F

Cook the noodles in the chicken stock, cook just under al dente.

Drain the noodles and place into a large bowl. Add in the stick of butter [no one said this was healthy] + Sour Cream + Paprika + Garlic Powder + Onion Powder + Salt. Mix well in the bowl.

Then you’re going to add in the cheeses, again stirring well in the bowl so that everything is mixed. In a separate bowl mix together the heavy cream + milk + 3 eggs.

Get out your pan and place a layer of the noodle mixture in the dish. Then pour over about half of the milk mixture over top. Finally, place a layer of the 3 cheese over top. Repeat this layering process until you run out. Top off with a little extra paprika and pepper.

Bake in the oven for about 50 minutes and enjoy the absolute gooey goodness that is this mac + cheese. Thank Stove Top Kisses for this one, it’s to die for.

Always Hungry,

Hannah
